Video: Jeff Rosenstock – “Melba”

Jeff Rosenstock, the Brooklyn-based punk outsider behind Bomb the Music Industry!, has released the first video from his latest solo effort POST-. The visual for “Melba,” directed by Ben Epstein and David Combs, stars Rosenstock as a restaurant manager who violently loses his temper after dealing with the pent up anger of a disgruntled patron. The cycle of aggression, which ends with another restaurant employee destroying her apartment, matches the frustration in the song’s lyrics: “This was a shit day/ Can’t power through the haze/ I’m tired of waiting for it to be over.” Watch the video below.

Though Rosenstock released POST- via his standard pay-what-you-want pricing model, Polyvinyl will release the record on vinyl, cassette, and CD on March 23. He is also embarking on an extensive tour with support from Martha, Lemuria, Laura Stevenson, and others, which kicks off tonight in Phoenix tonight; find the complete itinerary below.
