Video: Chuck Prophet Gets Some “Luck” (not…)


And no, before you ask, that ain’t Chuck pictured above…

Chuck Prophet is one of our eternal faves around here, so it’s a no brainer to post this new video from Mr. P. Titled “Wish Me Luck,” it’s from his just-released album Sun Surfer (Yep Roc), of which our reviewer enthused, “It’s not that Chuck Prophet needs any guideposts to find his way; indeed, after 30 years – five with seminal psychedelic band Green On Red, the remainder on his own – he clearly commands his own signature style. Still, there’s no denying the influences that abound here, as strung through the ricochet rhythms of “Countrified Inner City Technological Man,” the robust rocker “They Don’t Know About Me and You,” the kinetic strum of “Ford Econoline,” and the relentless tempo igniting “Felony Glamour.”

Watch the video, below. It was directed by Ryan Browne and stars Robert Longstreet.
