"AAN is a fearless experimental Pop band from Portland, OR mixing heavily textured guitars with rich vocal harmonies," according to
Stereogum (Claire Lobenfeld?) scored an for AAN's latest, Mike Wilson-directed music video, "Mystery Life." It's titular plot revolves around the age-old shtick of lead character, Bud Wilson, running from The Grim Reaper for his/her dear life. When he first spots a quick glimpse of Mr. Reaper, Wilson effectively trades in his longboard for a motorcycle behind a train. Next, Bud Wilson really tries to ditch The Grim Reaper by cliff-side, mini-boat, rickety pier, etc. The 2 unlikely friends eventually end up bonding over a pizza and pitcher of beer, before "making it rain" @ a dimly-lit stripclub. Bud & Grim soon end up @ an amusement park with 2 saucy dancers, whizzing through a Loop de Loop roller coaster, and escort them by way of taxi back to their apartment. Stay tuned 'til "Mystery Life"'s final scenes, which I'm pretty sure co-star(s) Wilson's fellow band members: Jon Lewis, Reese Lawhorn, and Jeff Bond [undertakers].
