Watch Sweet Baboo's Sweet "If I Died..."

By Jonah Wolf

Wales's Stephen Black, a.k.a. Sweet Baboo, puts his heart and his influences on his sleeve in this new video for "If I Died...," where Black's Wizard of Oz-like disembodied head floats after a love interest who's more interested in examining Daniel Johnston records. The twee (after all, the stage name comes from Peanuts) melancholy is balanced by self-aware humor and, more important, snappy drums and horns.

Sweet Baboo's fourth album and first North American release, Ships, comes out April 23 on Moshi Moshi records.
