Black Lips Video Premiere
Oct 1 2009
Vice Records very own raucous pioneers of mushroom tea-steeped garage rock, the Black Lips, have released the fourth video from their new record 200 Million Thousand. The video was made for a little gem titled “Let it Grow.” The whole thing, directed by Matt Dilmore, was shot exclusively with late 90s kiddie camera Vidster. It’s got a half-awake-pixely feel to it that compliments the blurry-nostalgia of fucking around as a youngster that the Black Lips do so well.
Oh, and if you live in one of the following American cities, you might consider seeing this band do what they do best: play the best damn live show you’ve ever seen.
