VIDEO PREMIERE: DAS KOPE “READY FOR THE SUMMER”
Producer/musician (and dweller in an apartment he calls “the cave”) Das Kope came from Sao Paulo but makes Hollywood his physical and psychic home, and his new video offers up a heavily mutated AOR downer (think certain parts of Ariel Pink, possibly on a more warped cassette deck) with CRT-scorching analog visuals about California melting into the sea or maybe the void. (This is called “Ready For Summer,” isn’t it?) Anyway, it’s great heat wave music—if ever something sounded like the shimmer over boiling concrete, this is it. You can get “Ready For The Summer” here and visit Das Kope here.
