Premiere: Deerhoof - "Black Pitch"

Take a ride down the murky-side of the River Thames with Deerhoof.

Jan 29 2015, 12:02pm

Today I want to talk to you about those Clipper boats that journey through London's waterways. They tend to be mostly used by tourists or couples looking for a nautical themed dinner, they're actually a great way to get around. You pay slightly more than a London Underground ticket but in return you get fresh air, sunshine, and a cool breeze flowing through your hair, rather than respirating between two strangers armpits and getting stuck in a tunnel for 15 minutes.

The band Deerhoof are from California but it appears they like riding boats down the Thames too. Check their new video above for "Black Pitch" and marvel as they traverse everywhere from Canary Wharf to Battersea to some weird area with a bunch of cranes. The track is taken from the band's thirteenth (IKR?!) album La Isla Bonita.
