Clipping has delivered an intense and hallucinatory new video for “All In Your Head,” directed by C Prinz (Tinashe, Miya Folick), a standout from There Existed an Addiction to Blood, the group’s acclaimed new album. The visual stars rapper Robyn Hood and Counterfeit Madison singer Sharon Udoh (who both guest on the track), along with dancer Jazz Washington and model/DJ Jantae Spinks.
C Prinz offers this, “‘All In Your Head’ is a surrealist portrait of the female experience embodied. I was deeply inspired by a line from an Amiri Baraka poem: ‘Lately, I’ve been accustomed to the way the ground opens up and envelopes me.’ I wanted to create something that felt authentic to the emotional landscape of the female-identifying. With this video, my goal was to get people to feel the imagery instead of just see it. This video is a pure representation of trust and community—it would not have been possible without the unconditional commitment of the cast, crew and the creative freedom Clipping and Sub Pop encouraged.”
Clipping add, “‘All In Your Head’ is the furthest we’ve taken the fracturing of single-point perspective in our storytelling. It was important to us to give over control and authorship of this particular video to our collaborators. We don’t appear in it and had virtually no input in its creation. And because we cannot take credit for any of it, we have no problem saying that C Prinz and her team have made a fucking masterpiece.”
Clipping will perform at the Adult Swim Festival on November 16th in Los Angeles. Additional live dates to be announced soon.

Today, Knife Knights (The Palaceer aka Ishmael Butler, Erik Blood, OCnotes and Marquetta Miller) share a dizzying new visual for “Drag Race Legend,” a psychedelic tale of wasted youth, directed by Joshua M. Johnson. The young man has a penchant for street racing, skipping school and getting high. He proclaims himself a legend, drinks spodie and parties with dorks like Billy Parker.”
What “The People” have said about Knife Knights 1 Time Mirage: “[A] spellbinding fusion of rap, blessed funk, and tough soul” - London in Stereo
“The result is an album of eminently listenable sonic frontierism, and Butler’s most accessible work in years.” [4/5] - MOJO
“[A] suite of sci-fi cosmic hip-hop that takes myriad turns and twists, none of them predictable, all of them compelling.” - The Wire
“Like Butler’s frequent collaborator Flying Lotus, Knife Knights create a rich, fibrous world around each of the tracks on 1 Time Mirage. This is an album whose air you can breathe, whose fragrant musk seeps from each detail. Its production has an insomniac energy, oddly tranquil and unsettled at the same time, each dab of reverb and tickling delay sending ripples through the fug of warped beats and sardonic rhymes.” [8/10] - Loud & Quiet
“1 Time Mirage leapfrogs across several different genres and subgenres, pulling hip-hop, psychedelic soul, and shoegaze into an 11-track set of chaotic noise. Between the woozy bounce of “Seven Wheel Motion,” the house-inflected stomp of “Can’t Draw The Line,” and the hazy pop of “Come On Let’s Go,” the album is easily as esoteric as anything created by Shabazz Palaces; but the music here feels lusher and more sophisticated.” - Bandcamp Daily
