Flyentology Video

This is an old favourite. Flyentology was the first single from El-P's latest album, I'll Sleep When You're Dead. The track features Trent Reznor (from Nine Inch Nails) on guest vocals and co-production.

The video was produced by the Adult Swim team (the guys behind Harvey Birdman, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, etc). I really like the simplified tonality and colour scheme (black, white & the def jux green). A great example of how 3D CGI can look great without looking like "wet clay".

Dig it:

Def Jux (El-P's label, which features artists like Aesop Rock, Mr. Lif, & now Del tha Funkee Homosapien) & Adult Swim also teamed up to release a free downloadable album called Definitive Swim. It contains singles from both El-P & Aesop Rock's latest albums, as well as some remixes and unreleased material. It's not all gold, but there are a few quality tracks. My personal favourites include the Brovaz Remix (Mr. Lif featuring Can Ox), Get Rich or Try Dying (Despot), & Blood Boy (Cage).

It's free, so what's the worst that could happen? Download it here.
