Andrew from Dope Body hit me up with a Gchat link last night, containing their new music video directed by Matt Porterfield. The video is for a song off of their forthcoming LP dubbed "Enemy Outta Me", of which I had the pleasure of premiering recently.
This is easily one of my favorite local videos of the year so far, chopping and splicing your insides with Porterfield's killer 16mm and Super 8 footage. The video was shot in the basement of the new Current Gallery space, and will blast you back to MTV circa 1993... when MTV after school was a more wholesome viewing experience than whatever the kids watch on that channel today.
In lieu of this rad new video, I asked Dope Body to let me premiere another new song off their upcoming LP. Above is "Forcefield, which will be found on the forthcoming album called Nupping. Clocking in at almost 7 minutes, this track is a journey into why this isn't your ordinary brute-force rock band. The track showcases the band's range in sound and structure, and is another example of the freakish guitar chops that the band uses to infiltrate your ears with loads of industrial sludge.
Details on Nupping are still in the works, but we'll surely keep you posted.
