Die Antwoord’s “Evil Boy”

Two words: PENISES.

If that didn’t clue you in, this video might be a little NSFW unless you work in a boner factory or something and penises are a common sight at your place of work.

And, in contrast, Die Antwoord has not disappointed at all. These guys get weirder and weirder with every piece of media they release and this video for Diplo-produced “Evil Boy” is no different. What they’re doing is some sort of insane genius art project involving the entire world and I love it. I am bummed I missed them when they played here at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. I don’t even know what I was doing when I missed it. Working? Out of town? Stupid? Probably just stupid. God damn, I suck sometimes.

Enjoy this video in a place where you won’t get in trouble for watching. And check Yolandi’s fucking mean ass flows. Darkly wonderful.

Uffie’s “Difficult”

You know, I have to admit that I was underwhelmed by Uffie’s album. After a bunch of hot as fuck tracks on various Ed Banger compilations, I had high hopes for her debut. “Pop The Glock”, her first song to hit the ol’ interwebs, was fine, but not all that interesting. But then she came along and dropped “Robot Ouef”, “Ready to Uff”, and “Dismissed” and I was a fan. She was edgy and mean and fucking dropping some hot aggro electro shit that was fucking awesome.

Then Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans came out filled with fairly bland electro pop shit with some absolutely banal rapping on it. Not bad, exactly, but definitely boring. Especially when compared to the fucking holy trifecta of banging Uffie tracks mentioned above. The album tracks lack energy. They harken back to the original “Pop The Glock” style, rather than pushing the later, edgier style forward. It was a mistake I think.

So, I’m not a huge fan of the song, but I dig the video. And I hope that Uffie regains a little edge for her sophomore effort. I’m willing to cut her a little slack here in light of her previously awesome work. But if the next record comes out and it’s more of this boring shit, consider my fandom over.
