'Modern Art' gives first look at Black Lips + Mark Ronson collab
If the skulls, the low rumble and Technicolor murk feel like leftovers from a Kenneth Anger film, they probably are
Earlier today Pitchfork premiered the Black Lips’ video for “Modern Art.” The song will appear on their forthcoming album, Arabia Mountain (due out June 7), and it’s the public’s first look at the group’s pairing with producer Mark Ronson ("Get Out and Get It" was produced by Lockett Pundt). If anything, it seems like Ronson has kept the group on task and helped churn-out a concise return to rock and roll form, and it’s a good primer for what the rest of the album has in store.
If the skulls, the low rumble rumble and Technicolor murk feel like leftovers from a Kenneth Anger film, they probably are. Anger’s understudy Brian Butler directed this vid. and his style is unmistakable.
