Here's the brainteasing new video from Golden Retriever, for their "Serene Velocity" track, which is on their upcoming Occupied with the Unspoken album, coming out later this month on Thrill Jockey. (Pre-order and get a bag of Stumptown! Really.) Despite the song's title, you might not find a ton of serenity in the track, a dizzy bed of blaring electronic tones that makes for an uneasy but captivating fanfare. The video's no less discomforting, resulting in something no unlike a game of Asteroids in 3D. Play this track at your holiday barbecue tomorrow and confound the dickens out of your neighbors.
Golden Retriever play a record release show for Occupied with the Unspoken on Wednesday, August 1 at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison). Normal Music, Ilyas Ahmed, and Pulse Emitter are also on the bill.
