brooklyn “discogaze” duo the hundred on the hands have been slowly rising on my radar since they opened for the golden filter back in june. they whip up quite the maelstrom live and their recent this desert EP hasn’t strayed far from my iPod all summer, its songs a seductive splicing of broadcast, ladytron and the xx. my boyfriend even hears a little bit of the gossip in the guitars.
they’re finally releasing their full-length, self-titled debut on sept. 24 through warp. this is the video for its premiere single “pigeons.” picture the infamous clip for prodigy’s “smack my bitch up” shot from the second person and blended with santigold’s “L.E.S. artistes.” it’s either just as cool as or cooler than that sounds. watch below and take your pick.
