Brandon Seabrook – “Emotional Cleavage” (Video Premiere) (NSFW?)

Nu Nu New Brandon Seabrooke \P

On his latest album, Die Trommel Fatale, guitarist and composer Brandon Seabrook appears to have tapped directly into the source of external anxiety. The strange metrics and “skronk”-ing harmonies of “Emotional Cleavage” depict an emotion all too familiar: pure, environmental agitation. Evoking a more “mathematical” Naked City, the overall dexterity of the Seabrook-led band, featuring Marika Hughes (cello), Chuck Bettis (vocals/electronics), Eivind Opsvik (bass), and drummers Sam Ospovat and Dave Treut, is fractal, spastic, and unnerving. It’s the kind of music you might regret listening to on accident or in the background, but the energy and momentum built over time is its own brand of compelling.

Seabrook’s avant-jazz-grind madness is unique and comes from a sort of Borges-esque forking heritage, culminating in this strange, ever-moving work. Paired with an absolutely grotesque (but vegan!) video, rife with the deep red hues of simulated carnage, the disquieting “Emotional Cleavage” will certainly speak to a specific, ecstatic audience. Like me. Abandon all hope, ye you enter here.

Die Trommel Fatale will be released on New Atlantis Records Friday, June 16th. Watch the music video for “Emotional Cleavage” below, but do so on an empty stomach and maybe not at work.
