When you bring together the front man of one of the biggest bands of the last thirty years and a Berlin duo with a love of glitchy, bass heavy, hip hop and (proper) electro then that is cause for huge excitement.
Thom Yorke from Radiohead’s recent collaboration with Modeselektor on two of the tracks from the album is no doubt a tour de force by the Monkeytown/50 Weapons lads who are all set to breach the next echelon of underground stardom . To go with the release of the duo’s third LP: Monkeytown, there is set to be a string of quality music videos to accompany some of the tracks from the album, the first of which was released today. ”Shipwreck” which features Thom Yorke’s haunting falsetto and Modeselektor’s unique trademark style has been given a visual interpretation by director Tony Datis and the end result is a haunting video that perfectly suits today’s Halloween festivities.
Feast your eyes and wrap your ears around this badboy and enjoy.
