FADERlabel artist Saul Williams is having quite a year, having released his Reznor-assisted Niggy Tardust album for free download to much fanfare, slayed SXSW, placed a song on a Nike ad, and generally taken his aesthetic to a level that none of us could have expected (and some of us have nightmares about). And it has all culminated in this new clip for “Convict Colony” directed by the same group of awesome weirdos who did the recent MGMT videos. We of course are biased so will avoid saying it’s the best thing ever, but it is safe to say that we are happy to be the first to put it into the universe.
