“The Count,” an absurdly funky track off Osborne’s new Hovercrafting EP, takes its name from Todd Osborn’s favorite character on the Detroit-area American Bandstand homage The New Dance Show. The video for “The Count” is composed entirely of clips from The New Dance Show’s early-’80s heyday, and it’s full of classic ‘80s outfits and dance moves and sequins on everything and you just gotta see it.

There’s also a pretty charming in-depth profile of Mr. Osborn over at Ann Arbor-based Concentrate magazine, in which he spends a good bit of time extolling the virtues of Ypsilanti, Michigan.
