CRAIG CLOUSE, the artist behind the $hit & $hine name, has partnered with Teeth of the Sea’s Mike Bourne to create an enthralling, pummeling visual miasma for his latest single, “Devil’s Backbone”: you can watch it, below.
Witness the visual spectacle of a roughly hewn flood of distorted footage, all bathed in a violent and ramshackle type aesthetic à la an unknown reel of footage being unearthed, adds to the scorching haziness of the track’s electronic jam.
This precedes the October 9th release of $hit & $hine’s upcoming album, Malibu Liquor Store, which includes “Devil’s Backbone” and preceding single, “Hillbilly Moonshine”.
Conceived manically during lockdown in the native Texan’s Austin, the album illustrates a psychic landscape of hellish proportions, fashioning facets of psych and dance into Clouse’s twisted hybrid of infectious glitch-heavy groove and an appropriately Texan acid-flashback aesthetic.
The pre-orders of Malibu Liquor Store have sold out but you can order the blue/red swirl vinyl via your local record shop.
