In case you haven’t picked up on it by now,
we’re not just a rap blog.
And although our immediate network of artists
might not always reflect the full range
of what we listen to,
we’re working to fix that
slowly but surely.
Today, we take a nice step forward
& are happy to premiere an exclusive new video
from one of our favorite bands at the moment -
the Dallas / Chicago psych rock outfit, The Vliets
w/ their hypnotic, uhhh… non anti-drug ode, “God’s Drug.”
The song is the first of two
that they’ve leaked from their upcoming The Vliets II EP,
which we’ve previously selected here -
& for the video,
they’ve hooked up w/ visual artist, ggrraasshhooppeerr
(also known as the one-man-band, Kissed Her Little Sister)
for a properly psychedelic
& pixelated video experience.
To ensure you get the video’s full effect -
be sure to watch in HD
+ turn off all the lights
& put your face as close to your monitor as you can -
it’s much more fun that way.
is a stream of “Velvet Sea,”
the second song leaked
from the same EP,
which should be released
in the coming weeks.
