Kirin J Callinan – “S.A.D (Song About Drugs)” Video

Australian noise-pop weirdo Kirin J Callinan just released two new tracks, “Bravado” and “S.A.D (Song About Drugs),” on the heels of a star-studded mockumentary about his life. Now he’s officially announced the album that those tracks come from, Bravado, his first since his 2013 debut Embracism. It’ll feature lots of guests, including Sean Nicholas Savage, Connan Mockasin, Jorge Elbrecht, Weyes Blood, Mac DeMarco, and Owen Pallett, the last three all on the same song. And with that announcement, Callinan has shared a characteristically goofy video for “S.A.D,” which finds him cavorting around and striking lots of poses in Cuba. Watch below; it’s briefly NSFW at around 2:50, i.e. you can see his dick for a second.
