I’ve got two ridiculously trippy music videos for you this afternoon. One from the Brooklyn duo LIL KIDS, and another collaboration from Vancouver electronic artist Grimes/Oakland rapper Kreayshawn/Vancouver producer Blood Diamonds/and videographed/edited by Kreayshawn’s wingwoman Lady Tragik. God that was a mouthful.
Make girls cry like Kim Jong-il died / Don’t think too hard, do what feels right
LIL KIDS recently released their newest record online for free over at Bandcamp. It’s called Young Hercules and it’s a doozy. The accompanying music video, of the track “Coitus Interruptus” (latin for the “pull out method” of sexual intercourse) is first off– NSFW– and second of all it’s a imagination sparker for anyone surfing the Internet on any number of drugs. Shot by University of Michigan student Theo Schear, the black-and-white footage is infused with psychedelically vibrant colors. It may be too graphic to “blow up” on the blogosphere, but only time will tell whether this one goes viral.
Next up we have another “trippy” video from a motley crew spanning the West Coast. Vancouver and Oakland-based people connected in Los Angeles to film this odd, made-to-go-viral music video. On main display are Grimes’ haunting vocals and Kreayshawn’s don’t-give-a-fuck rapping style. The creators boast that the song was recorded in 10 minutes and the music video was filmed and edited in a mere four hours. While the song “Don’t Smoke My Blunt Bitch,” seems to be inspired by LSD and blunts, it was likely created on a mixture of speed and crack. But honestly, it shows that the whole process was “rushed,” because the whole thing both sounds and looks like it was pushed out. This one, though, will hit the 1 million view mark in the next week. Oh, the world we live in.
