Videogum has the clip–Kim Gordon is apparently available to officiate your wedding. The song, a dazed, acoustic version of “Star Power,” perfect for slow dancing at romantic occasions and the like, is available now from Sonic Youth, where it comes with all sorts of other bonus swag. Can someone who regularly watches this show explain whether there was a reason, diegetically speaking, that the band was present/officiating, or whether we’re just meant to believe you could assemble that many young people in a room and have none of them recognize the wedding band? Yeah, we know, culture fail. We’re also unfamiliar with this Mad Men show you talk about all the time.
