Today (September 18) marked the release of former Sleater-Kinney singer-guitarist Corin Tucker's sophomore set with her Corin Tucker Band, titled Kill My Blues. In case you haven't already picked up a copy of the album, pressed by Kill Rock Stars, there's a new video for previously previewed album track "Neskowin" ready to sell you on the platter.

The semi-autobiographical number centres on lyrics about a childhood trip Tucker and a friend went on, but the video focuses on a fictional pair of teens making their way to an X-Ray Spex show. The kids hitch a ride downtown with some hippies and cruise an all-ages club filled with Frogger and BurgerTime arcade games. One girl ends up kneeing some creep-o punker in the nuts, while the other stage dives during a set.

Tucker herself plays the roles of a hippy, X-Ray Spex singer Poly Styrene, and the mother who takes care of her daughter after her big day out. It seems the girl was, ahem, all Tuckered out.

You can check out the clip below via NPR.
