New Thousand Foot Whale Claw
It seems Holodeck Records are preparing for another act to take the reigns in their global electronic domination, this time with the new LP from Thousand Foot Whale Claw. Opening the track is nearly two minutes of stark industrial atmosphere, as the video pans through what looks like a dilapidated school building (or what we just call school in Texas). But, just before the 2 minute mark, the beat changes, signaled by a dancer in a hooded onesie grooving to a more propulsive beat. That carries through, allowing the rest of the video cast to partake in dancing, though centralized on one man. For me, even when their sounds are rooted, the people involved in Holodeck always make things sound fresh. Look for Black Hole Party on June 29th.
