Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Ken has released a video for “Doesn’t it Remind You of Something?” which we’re premiering in this post. While the album version is a duet with The Head & the Heart’s Charity Rose, the video co-stars comedian Margaret Cho. Theirs is a burning love in the most literal sense. Watch it below.

Scott Miller of The Loud Family and Game Theory has some nice things to say about Jon, “Conversations” and “Lady Sweet” here:
Jon Auer didn’t take a day off from crafting great music in the mid-2000s; his break-out Big Star moment (read on) only barely surpasses this Posies return to form, whose unhurried stroll up perilous baroque scales and back to meaty rock are an immense favorite of everyone in my household. I must have listened to this song a hundred times by now and it never gets old.
It’s their finest moment, the perfect balance of bombastic, tricky cheapness and vocal creme fraische. I can’t understand half the words, but it doesn’t seem to matter that much. I learned more about singing harmonies with this record in my car than I did in three years of choir.
