In the Corin Tucker Band’s music video for “Neskowin”, Tucker’s own experience as a girl coming of age in the ’80s is re-told through the adventures of two best friends. These girls, stuck in the awkward, Brittany Spears-defined struggle between childhood and womanhood, skip a family vacation in order to wear makeup, listen to records, flirt with boys, narrowly avoid fisticuffs, and attend their first glorious punk-rock show. And in an Eddie Murphy-esque turn, Tucker appears as three different characters (the protective mother, the hippie who the girls flag down, and the girls’ idol, punk siren Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex). Watch the video below (via NPR First Listen).

The outfit’s sophomore LP, Kill My Blues, is in stores today via Kill Rock Stars.
