My First Earthquake: New video, free download

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking about Halloween early this year: My First Earthquake, the San Francisco-based indie rockers, are also playing dress-up in their new video for "Sweet Frown."

According to the band, "The video, produced by Jesus Beltran, captures MFE's singer, Rebecca Bortman as a hard-to-please Marie Annotiette with her courtesans and the rest of the band trying to sweetly please her. This video is filled with comedic historical anachronisms from the electric guitars to the Sno-Ball cakes." Works for me. I love the line "Stole a song from Ratatat, and now I know what lawsuits feel like!" But if they go to France, will they have to play as Mon Premier Séisme?

They've offered a free download of the track here, and more info about the album, Downstairs, at

The band is currently on tour in Cali:

Thu, Oct 15: Stanford CoHo, Palo Alto
Sat, Oct 17: The Hemlock Tavern, SF
Sun, Oct 18: Bernal Heights Fiesta, SF
Fri, Nov 13: Cafe du Nord, SF with The Generationals
