"You Said Dylan's Overrated"

Yes, this does mark like 15 video posts in a row, but who cares. Hayes Carll is easily one of our favorite "newish" artists over the past few years, and his new album KMAG YOYO [Army for: "Kiss My Ass Guys, You're On Your Own] is a perfect slice of everything great about Hayes. They songs are sharp, the lyrics are astute and relevant, and as you can see in the above video, dude has a wickedly excellent sense of humor. "Another Like You" is a duet with the fantastic Cary Ann Hearst and the video features production from Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator David Willis, and cameo appearances by Mary Matalin and James Carville. We're still wondering how that relationship works. KMAG YOYO is out now.
