THE HULKISH HASHING OF HOLY HUNTED MUSIC VIDEOS

Hulk fills in for April in this week's all-caps edition of Holy Hunter. 

THE HULKISH HASHING OF HOLY HUNTED MUSIC VIDEOS

HEY ALL,

SINCE APRIL'S OFF APPLYING MAKEUP TO THE BETTER PART OF THE POPULATION OF TEXAS, SHE BEQUEATHED HULK WITH THE HONOR OF TELLIN Y'ALL ABOUT HER PICKS FOR THIS WEEK'S HOLY HUNTER OF MUSIC VIDEOS.

FIRST UP WE HAVE ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS BRINGING YOU "CUT THE WORLD." WHILE THE SOUND EMANATING FROM ANTONY HEGARTY AND HIS COHORTS MAY PROVIDE YOU WITH ETHEREAL BLISS BEST EXPERIENCED DURING A LONG WALK ON THE BEACH, YOU MAY NOTICE THAT THE MESSAGE OF THE VIDEO IS A BIT MORE... STRIDENT. WHICH IS VERY MUCH ON PURPOSE OF COURSE. "CUT THE WORLD" (ALSO THE NAME OF THE FORTHCOMING ALBUM) IS AN ODE TO THE CONCEPT OF FUTURE FEMINISM AND HOW THE WORLD NEEDS TO MAKE A MARKED SHIFT TOWARDS FEMINISM NOT JUST IN TERMS OF SOCIETAL CONSTRUCTS, BUT GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP AS WELL. THE VIDEO MAKES NO BONES ABOUT ONE WAY TO ACHIEVE THAT. AND TO THAT PURPOSE THE GROUP HAS ENLISTED THE HELP OF CARICE VAN HOUTEN, WILLEM DAFOE AND THE MONO-NOMENIC VIDEO DIRECTOR DU JOUR KNOWN AS "NABIL" (SERIOUSLY HIS LAST FIVE EFFORTS ARE A MURDERER'S ROW). APPARENTLY KANYE WEST FREAKIN LOVES HIM TOO. ANYCRAP, THE ONLY THING FOR CERTAIN IS THAT DAFOE SEEMS TO HAVE THE MARKET CORNERED THESE DAYS WHEN IT COMES TO BEING THE REPRESENTATIVE TARGET OF PATRIARCHAL DESTRUCTION... YES THIS IS AN ANTICHRIST REFERENCE... AND YES HULK THOUGHT THERE WAS POTENTIAL FOR THIS ONE TO TURN INTO A CASE OF ANTONY AND THE HIDE YOUR JOHNSONS.

 
LOWER DENS IS AN ATMOSPHERIC-PSYCH-FOLK QUINTET FROM BALTIMORE WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ONE OF HULK'S FAVORITE SONGS IN "I GET NERVOUS." NOW THEY BRING US THE VIDEO FOR "CANDY" (OFF THEIR RECENTLY RELEASED ALBUM NOOTROPICS) WHICH SEEMS TO FOCUS ON ONE OF THE MORE ECLECTIC, TERRIFYING WORKPLACE RETREATS CONCEIVABLE. HULK CAN'T POSSIBLY IMAGINE WHAT COMPANY WOULD COMPRISE THIS KIND OF COLLECTION OF ODDITIES, BUT THEY ARE PROBABLY HIRING. COME FOR THE TEAM-BUILDING TRUST GAMES, OVERTLY-GENERIC CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP AND CLIP-ON TIES. BUT STAY FOR DRAGTASTIC-JACKIE-O PINK DRESSES, TEAL-PAINTED NOSES, AND THE MOST SUSPECT USE OF MO-CAP SINCE THE POLAR EXPRESS.
 

 
THE MYSTERIOUS PITTSBURGH OUTFIT KNOW ONLY AS BLACK MOTH SUPER RAINBOW HAS LONG BEEN HURLING BOTH BARBS AND BEATS FROM THE PERIPHERY WITH THEIR UNIQUE BRAND OF EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHEDELIC SYNTH-POP. COMBINED WITH THEIR PENCHANT FOR BEING COMPLETE FUCKING ENIGMAS, THE BAND HAS THIS UNCANNY WAY OF DIVERTING OUR COLLECTIVE ATTENTION. AND WITH THE UPCOMING, KICKSTARTER-PRODUCED ALBUM ENTITLED COBRA JUICY, THEY ALSO BRING US THEIR NEW VIDEO FOR THE FIRST SINGLE "WINDOW SMASHER." WHAT STARTS WITH THAT SIMPLE, EPONYMOUS CONCEIT IS EXTRAPOLATED BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS INTO A SITUATION THAT BRINGS OUR SILVER-LAKE-IAN STYLED COUPLE INTO DIRECT CONFLICT WITH A GANG OF BAT-WIELDING MASKED THUGS WOULD WOULDN'T BE OUT OF PLACE IN THE WARRIORS. WHAT THEIR METHODS LACK IN MALICE, THEY MAKE UP FOR IN ABSURDITY, AS OUR NOT-SO-BELOVED COUPLE IS PUT THROUGH FORCED-TOOTH-BRUSHING, FORCED-GROOMING, FORCED-CAKE-GORGING, AND WHAT-HULK-SURELY-THOUGHT-WAS-FORCED-APPLE-BOBBING. BUT AFTER ALL THAT MERELY AMOUNTS TO THE WEIRDEST GANG INITIATION EVER, ONLY ONE QUESTION REMAINS... CAN HULK JOIN?
