Cloning (Dana Matthiessen of White Suns) premieres video, releases split single, tours, still finds time to hit the gym

It’s hard work being obsessed. Take it from me: I’m literally EXHAUSTED from how much Greek yogurt I eat on a daily basis. Or, maybe take it from Pittsburgh, PA’s Cloning, the ominous, creeping, droning solo project of Dana Matthiessen from White Suns? Yeah. Yeah. Let’s definitely go with the Cloning example.

In addition to his band’s more or less continually-uncontested reign of high-octane ass-kickery and an entire tape of new Cloning music coming soon on Refulgent Sepulchre, Mattheisen has, meanwhile, found time to team up with D.C. audio/visual artist and director Patrick James Cain to create a pulsing, hypnotic video for a new track called “217xh,” which we have the pleasure of premiering today. Now that’s some serious dedication right there.

But that’s not even all, y’all. The track is due to appear on a new self-released split with D.C.-based electro-psych band Radiator Greys (whose new PJC video we also just premiered), a release that’s being made available this month on a tour of the U.S. (several dates of which include appearances with “superstar module-masher” Unguent).

Check out the clip for “217xh” down below, as well as the list of specific coordinates from which you can procure your own copy of the glorious fruits of Matthiessen and his cohorts’ obstinate mania for continuously unearthing cutting-edge new sounds and images.
