No, young friends, our man Oxfist is not paying tribute to the TV network, but rather the old player pianos that once dominated the parlors and bars of the world in the ’20s and ’30s. Or as he put it, the title was chosen “after the realization that melody line sounds like a player piano choking on a chunk of piano roll.” Well put.
The short swinging track comes from Eye of the Witholder, a recently compiled set of tunes that Oxfist put together during the heady days of the ’00s and under the influence of DOOM, Madlib, and J Dilla. And to celebrate it, Will Watts stitched together this amazing and hypnotic video. I’m going to find a way to loop these 48 seconds of video and sound, and spend the day starting straight into the LSD trailed abyss brought to life by these very active kids.
