It's the first single from the brand new TV on the Radio single, Wolf Like Me. Besides that trendy "wolf" thing going on, the lyrics and video dutifully showcase a b-movie/silent movie werewolf story set in what I only imagine as an hipster Orchards Street underground club. Eighties fashion nods abound as hip kids infecting each other with moon triggered lycanthropy, culminating into a tipping point where all the cooler thans are wearing Hush Puppies and braying at the full moon. Gladwell would be so pleased. Jon Watts directs the piece with enough scratching, ageing film processing to keep the computers rendering all night. It's nice to see TVOTR back, and I can't wait to hear what they also come up with collaborating on the forthcoming Massive Attack LP as well. Watch the music video (qt).
