Scott Walker

Scott Walker has accomplished the impossible: he created an album that’s more ambitious, more experimental, and more surreal than The Drift. Bish Bosch is a terrifying mindfuck of an album. It’s also absolutely hilarious and unquestionably one of the most thought-provoking albums released in years, the product of a mind that refuses to compromise yet is clearly open enough to let new, twisted ideas through. The monochrome video for “Epizootics!” — directed by Olivier Groulx — continues this uncompromising aesthetic; like the album, it’s at once stunningly beautiful and incredibly dark, with a surreal sense of humor. Check it out above.

Bish Bosch is out December 4 on 4AD. Watch the trailer here and pre-order it now.
