The Polish audio/visual duo HOV, whose minute-long YouTube montage “Just Another Video About Sunset” remains one of the most memorable videos I've posted here, return with a new track, a collaboration with the bleak Arizona rapper Faces. Like a response to Stalker's Kreayshawn-directed “Prelude”—that weird video with the slo-mo dread-shaking—except filmed in a dark corner of Białowieża Forest, HOV's video involves just a single shot of a woman spinning her hair. It's what happens in between the frames that makes it stand out. The track was produced by the duo's Piotr Matkowski; hopefully a proper debut release is on the way.
