Gobby does collaborative art exhibit in NYC; new video updates us on a blue-collar Kermit

To be sure, Wakng Thrst For Seeping Banhee is intriguing enough without a visual complement, but as you might’ve noticed when the album was first announced, alongside the video unveiling for “Red Seal,” things have the potential to get so much more fascinating than our boring ol’, literally-wireless lives. Let’s all yearn for a universal marionette depiction, and suddenly, our monotonous trips to the grocery store will become entertaining bounces with the trolley up and down the aisles! Check out the new Gobby music video below for further confirmation; just look at that awesome toilet interaction:

The video is courtesy of who, again? Well, Gobby of course, but also Nicholas Buffon and Brooklyn artist Allegra Crowther, all three of whom are putting on a collaborative exhibition at the New York project space Shoot the Lobster, starting now and lasting through August 3. “Pleh” features drawings and comics created by Gobby over the past six years (including his first commercially printed comic book), as well as videos and video props from the trio. It should be noted further that this is Gobby’s first “comprehensive exhibition” anywhere, so if you’re looking to dive into his creative — and not just musical — mind, this seems like a rare opportunity to do so.

I mean, it’s potentially less disturbing than entering his home and stumbling upon this. Eye contact. “Oh, ummm… sorry.”
