Plains' self-titled debut album is a grand thing. Dare we say "not just one of the best South Florida debuts of late but one of the best indie-rock efforts this year, full stop."

And though we haven't been talking about it too much since July, we still care a lot about the buzzy Miami act. County Grind is far from the only South Florida news source that adores the band, though. Miami New Times, City Link, and Beached Miami all weighed in on Michael McGinnis' thought-provoking words and melodies and the sonic punch that his associates put in behind him. It's the latter of the three that premiered a new video from the group over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Directed by Plains drummer Jorge Rubiera and guitarist Jorge Graupera, "Black Feeling" is the latest video from the

album, and it's the most ambitious clip from the group to date. Without

spoiling too much, it is apparent that when one is feeling "black," the

obvious next step is to cause irreparable damage to an instrument.

All of the guys show great form as they lay waste to ex-instruments with the gusto of legendary Who guitarist Pete Townshend. Ponder briefly what a blooper reel minus music would be like.

Beached Basel Bash. With Plains, ANR, Little Beard, and Nicky Blitz. DJ sets by Millionyoung, Laura of Miami, and Eddie P. 8 p.m. Wednesday, November 30, at Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Click here.
