French fries, weights, and a basebal bat: what kind of fricken video is this? This would be “Rat”, and it is the brainchild of Wise Blood, who shot this in his homedown of Pittsburgn with director Michael Lawrence. It reveals that Wise Blood is very white, and one can argue that his music is very white as well, but it’s also yellow, green, orange, purple, blue, and whatever new colors can be found in the 96 box of Crayola’s. The song is from Wise Blood’s forthcoming album id (Dovecote). which he says can be called I.D. or as “id”, both ways are fine. June 25th is when you’ll be able to purchase the album in full, but you’ll want to know what he sounds like. To me, there’s a bit of indie pop and a slight hip-hop stroll but I wouldn’t call this hip-hop in the traditional sense. I would consider it wide open like the music of Beck, but maybe it’s more cLOUDDEAD. I’m still uncertain at this time.
