"I think your're freaky and I like you alot"….If something is creepy and or disturbing on a psychological level, Im gonna like it.
I’m not sure what in my chemistry makes me appreciate freak like spookiness yet be unable to watch a horror film. What I can do is take metered doses of music videos and process them. I think it may be the beat.
Enter Die Antwoord. A dumb name for a rap band who I at first thought was some German techno thing- who’d have thought they’d be a South African hip hop thang?
Now cop a gander at this video teaser for their new album.. makes Marilyn Manson look like The Disney Chanel. So these folk are no newbie to shocking. They consider themselves to be a rap crew/art project. Ahh, you can smell the hipster in the air! But I cant even pick on them too much cuz this thing creeped the bejeezuz out of me.
The album Likely to be Not Safe For Work. Ten$ion will be released on February 7.
