THING OF THE DAY….
Toasters down Vyner Street, now that can’t be a bad thing can it? Toaster crew, flowers from 616, the East London street is flowing rather nicely. This piece of work appeared yesterday on the old doors of Lime Wharf…
Meanwhile, over in LA, “Noise / rap trio clipping. are back with the third music video from their debut ‘midcity’. Directed by Cristina Bercovitz, this video for the fan favorite track “bout.that” extends their interest in distorted Betamax imagery. Tying together clipping.’s own harsh aesthetic to the raw visuals of early 90s rap videos, “Bout That” looks like a lost gem that you recorded late at night at your mom’s house, got tossed in a box of stuff when you went off to college, now found again twenty years later. Filmed in the group’s LA neighborhood of Midcity, and staring three actual sign twirlers that work the area, the landscape is as much the star of this video as the group themselves”.
Seems Clipping have now signed to SubPop and their debut album (something we told you about on these pages ages ago) will be emerging in 2014, so expect to start reading about them in your music media sometime soon… ‘midcity’ can be downloaded for free via clipping.’s site: http://itsclippingbitch.com
More of this Organ stuff tomorrow, maybe….
