Wake up, wake up - it's the 4th of the month! And the month is March! Can't you just feel that fresh Spring air coming? Don't the sweet creep of impending warmer weather just make you just want to dance? Well, pay attention, BPB hive, because ol' Uncle Bonnie has whipped up some new memories for you - specifically, the opening track of I Made A Place, now transformed into a body-movin', certified New Orleans-style Bounce banger!

 With the help of frequent co-conspirator Ben Berman, the 'Prince's vid for "New Memory Box" explodes the screen and jolts into your cerebellum. Armed with a J Dawg's hi-energy remix of the song (thanks Dawg!), Bonnie's video presentation ripples into the absurd, but couched in an everyday-reality setting that emphasizes the kind of lyric meditation that only the hand of ye Billy can summon.
Connect with Bonnie on the streets of his hometown Louisville as he rolls with gorgeous greyhounds, larger than life apparel and even a goddamn Volvo wagon! "New Memory Box" is phrased urgently and oriented communally, showing the mystic state of optimism as somewhere fine to be. Check out the video above and keep on bouncin' to the shows below.
