Video: The Coup - "Land Of Seven Billion Dances" + Tour Bus Mission
The Coup just released the next video from their don't-call-it-a-comeback LP Sorry To Bother You (October 30th on Anti-Records) The song is called "Land Of Seven Billion Dances" and the vid does its level best to illustrate that concept, with a grip of dancers and crews demonstrating the style known as turfin'--plus some juke and classic b-boy steps (I don't see anybody doing the jit though, a little disappointing to me, personally, cause ain't Boots originally from Detroit??). It also nicely illustrates The Coup's new sound, a raw amalgam of rap, soul & grimy rock that has lost none of the urgency of their early sh*t but is also propelled by a kind of crazy take-on-the-world joy that was probably there on "Dig It" but buried under the sonic layers of screams and police 'copters. Watch:
Meanwhile back at the compound, The Coup are also in the market for a tour bus to bring their musical creations to a town near you, and being the collectivists they are, they are taking their cause to kickstarter--which is to say to you. Watch the kickstarter vid after the jump and donate here (hint: there may be some vinyl copies of the new LP in it for you).
