After releasing a stunning debut album and signing with vaunted indie label Merge Records, San Francisco rocker Mikal Cronin today releases his second album, MCII. The 10-song collection continues where his debut left off, with driving, hugely melodic pop-rock songs and even more instrumental subtleties. The video experts over at Yours Truly used the occasion to make one of their finest films yet, following Cronin around his adopted home of S.F. for a day, and capturing performances at his home basement. Cronin's performances are intimate and lovely, and the footage of him in the city is gorgeous. This clip is definitely worth its seven minutes:
