Archie Powell & the Exports release video for new single 'Job Fair'

See also

Good work is hard to find. It seems Chicago's own Archie Powell & the Exports know this well, with their latest single "Job Fair" speaking for all who are unable to gain employment or who are trapped in a sucky, dead-end job. But in the video treatment of the track, the guys are able to entertain with their usual style of wackiness despite the song's theme of frustration. The clip includes farm animals, old-timey attire, clown makeup and lots of general tom-foolery to make for three minutes of good fun. Check it out for yourself with the clip embedded in this article.

"Job Fair" is taken from the band's most recent LP Great Ideas in Action, released earlier this year as the follow-up to 2010's Skip Work. The band have also released the track as a digital single along with a b-side called "Erik Elects to Veto," which you can get via Bandcamp.

You can catch A&TE live next coming up November 21st at Metro with JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound (tickets and details here).
