Shabazz Palaces - "Forerunner Foray" (2014)
Shabazz Palaces have premiered the early front-runner for music video of the year in “Forerunner Foray” (via Gorilla vs. Bear). The animated fever dream of a video is directed by the talented Chad VanGaalen and accompanies one of the best tracks from one of the best albums of 2014, Lese Majesty. “Forerunner Foray” sees the avant-garde hip-hop duo of Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire bring the earthly and celestial together with a pounding beat and fluttering synthesizers, a hard-to-pin-down track even in terms of the already hard-to-pin-down group.
