New Videohippos – “Neo York”

Baltimore (or “BALT,” in W.K. parlance) BTW Videohippos generally trade in hypercolor, hyperbeat bursts that tend toward more morose territory than their Wham City brethren (no downers in Deacon land, etc.). And on this Unbeast The Leash b-side, the Hippos are very much in that same space albeit with a dialed down bpm, bringing those filtered vox to a steady, eq-compressed swing. Pack up the kids:

Videohippos – “Neo York” (MP3)

Unbeast The Leash is out now via Monitor on CD, via Wildfire Wildfire on vinyl. Bummed there weren’t any CMJ dates, doubly bummed they’re no longer on the Dan Deacon Halloween bill. But the Hippos have a slew of southern dates coming up, so take the jump for the stops on “The Thoughtful Tour.”
