Watch Powell's Video for "Insomniac" Featuring Steve Albini's Voice and Emails
Big up, Steve.
You might have seen not too long ago that XL Records bought a billboard in London displaying an email sent from Steve Albini to Powell regarding Powell's request to sample Albini's vocals for a song. Albini sort of didn't care too much and just said whatever, and now the song is here! It's a very staticky track, sounding like it got lost in some really bad radio interference. As a part of the larger video, Powell incorporated not only the email printed on the billboard, but a newer correspondence where Steve still doesn't care. Listen for yourself. Ni
