Shabazz Palaces' fractured, dissonant strain of hip-hop is seriously heady stuff, the kind of music that takes a little while to sink in because of its inherent weirdness—and so it goes that their new video for Lese Majesty track "Forerunner Foray" is some seriously trippy shit. The animated visuals were done by fellow Sub Pop signee Chad VanGaalen, whose own visual style can lean towards the grotesque; VanGaalen's dialed his gross-out impulses here just a tad, instead turning out something truly cosmic that fits with SP's astral-travelling vibe.
