If you've ever wanted to know what the Spinal Tap of 70s soft rock sounded like, you should turn into IFC for their new faux-documentary comedy series, Documentary Now! starring SNL alumni, Fred Armison and Bill Hader. It's not entirely clear that they're actually mocking the Fleetwood Macs/CSNYs/Peter Frampton's of the world as much as they're paying a loving but rib-nudging homage to those Laurel Canyon sounds. The pair dropped their video for their fake band the Blue Jean Committee's single, "Catalina Breeze," and although the Seals & Croft jokes right themselves, they manage to completely nail the actual vibe of that era. Also, Bill Hader's David Crosby stache is on point.
