See Wilco and Robyn Hitchock in Nick Lowe’s First Video in 18 Years

Nick Lowe hasn’t made a video for 18 years, so it stands to reason he’d want to make this one count. Director Scott Jacobson, who has worked on videos for the National, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, and Superchunk, sets a wry, goofy tone for “Sensitive Man,” a ’50s-syle rocker from the longtime U.K. pop outsider’s rewarding 2011 victory lap The Old Magic. Comedian/podcaster Marc Maron and Time and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! half Tim Heidecker star, while Wilco and Robyn Hitchcock make brief, knowing appearances (as does Maria Thayer from Strangers With Candy). “That’s not sensitive, it’s self-conscious,” quips the video’s lone female character. “I’m no dinky doo,” Lowe crows. Psychedelic self-help bromance awaits. (Via NPR)
