Benjamin John Power is one half of the great Fuck Buttons, and he also releases his own intense white-knuckle synth experiments as Blanck Mass. He’s got a new album called Dumb Flesh coming later in the spring, and first single “Dead Format” is a vein-constricting six-minute blare. Its new video, from director Konx-om-Pax, fits the song. It’s a non-representational montage of tension-inducing imagery: Flames, cartoon skulls, cryptic symbols. If you are both high and in a bad and stressed mood, it’s the sort of thing you can stare at for hours. Watch it below.
Dumb Flesh is out 5/12 on Sacred Bones.
