Kurt Wagner has shared the third single from his upcoming Lambchop album, The Bible, which is out September 30 via City Slang. Following previous cuts ‘Police Dog Blues’ and ‘So There’, the track arrives with an accompanying computer-generated video from director Isaac Gale. Check it out below.
Wagner said of ‘Little Black Boxes’ in a statement: “This song was created in a hot, sweaty, smokey, room on a mid July evening, filled with six or seven sweaty Minnesotans, four or five laptops, a piano, a smoke machine, and some laser lighting all throbbing to an undeniably infectious groove, it’s a wonder we all survived. But here we are. Lightning in a beer bottle.”
“We wanted to see if we could get anywhere close to something ‘cinematic’ with this video, using only 3D assets and digital filters,” Gale added of the visual. “So we set an impossible goal and picked the greatest concert film ever shot – Shake! Otis Live at Monterey – as our target. It’s got the best chaotic energy in both the performance and the camera work.”
