“I gotta even the score, get right out…”
Here’s something a little bit exciting. This is a collaboration that I had been hoping would happen for quite some time, but now has finally eventuated – Wolf Haley, aka Tyler, the Creator, has sat himself down in the fancy chair and directed the new video for fear-inducing punk rats Trash Talk. We’ve seen collaborations between Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All and the TT boys before, but that’s only been on-stage chaos. Here, Tyler tries to capture the insane energy that comes with their shows. For what it’s worth, he’s done a pretty good job.
Filmed in grainy black and white, the video is seemingly done in one take, with a spinning camera documenting the band letting loose from all corners of the room. It’s not all just a performance video, of course: in less than two minutes, you see skateboard stacks, nudity, bong rips and a circle pit. Vocalist Lee Spielman pretty much sums it up when he looks around at the end of the video and screams “What the FUCK?” directly down the barrel. Man, it’s great to have these guys as part of the Odd Future family. Break down genre walls. Fuck labels. This rules.
