The Two Koreas “Midnight Brown”

I’ve been really kind of liking this Canadian post-punk band’s third and latest album (the first for me), which is called Science Island and it’s coming out early in March on Last Gang Records.

I still might write about it somewhere, but meanwhile, I’m thinking some of you guys (Simon, are you out there?) might like this bristle-y, abrasive video (which reminds me a little of that Thrill Jockey band, Double Dagger). I haven’t gotten all the way through it, because it takes forever on dial-up. Still the first 15 seconds (which I’ve watched about 30 times) are awesome.

The rest of it ain't bad either.

Weirdly, they've picked the third or fourth best song from the album for the video. There's a whole string of them in the middle that are better than this one.

They're from Toronto. Do you know them?
