Lou Barlow, 'Take Advantage' video: An EW exclusive!

Let’s say you are indie-rock hero Lou Barlow. One morning, you walk down to your boiler room-slash-merch cellar, only to find one of your pals cold passed out underneath a pile of old Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, and/or Folk Implosion t-shirts. Do you mock, rob, or otherwise take advantage of this unlucky fellow? No! Instead, you prop him up with a mic and a set of headphones and get him to sing harmony on a gentle acoustic tune, perhaps coincidentally titled “Take Advantage.” Because you are Lou Barlow, and Lou Barlow is an all-around nice guy.

Now that I have spoiled the plot of the first half of Barlow’s new music video for you, take a look below. “Take Advantage” is one of the standouts from his excellent solo album Goodnight Unknown, due Oct. 6. Right now, the Music Mix is the only place where you can watch the video he shot to accompany it. I think it’s a pretty cool song and clip. Check it out and let us know if you agree!
