Height Keech – “Don’t Die” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The Baltimore rapper Dan Keech has been recording as Height for more than a decade, and he’s been a longtime staple of his hometown’s still-thriving DIY scene. Earlier this year, he used the name Height Keech to release the personal real-talk album Talk Singer, and we’ve posted his perfectly lovely video for “Bring Your Soul (To The Function).” Now we’ve got his video for the angular “Don’t Die.” Justin Barnes directs, and the video shows a ghost dancing in front of screen projections of Keech rapping around Baltimore.
