The Chicharones - Eggshells

Smoke of Oldominion
Swine Flew

In the last year or so, Smokey Robotic have established themselves as the DJBooth’s foremost purveyors of crazy-ass visuals—if you don’t believe me, check out the nightmarish, bunny suit/melting ice cream themed video for mixtape title track The Shark and the Helicopter. If the latest collaboration between Portland crew The Chicharones and director Stuey Kubrick is any indication, however, it seems that they may have found some competition. A Booth-exclusive world premiere, the official video accompaniment to album standout Eggshells finds Kubrick paying homage to his cinematic namesake, combining imagery from 2001 with a few new themes—namely sexy stewardesses, pig masks, and lots of eggs. And the song? While only tenuously tied to the onscreen action, it’s pretty damn dope, boasting a off-kilter, synth-driven instrumental by Smoke of Oldominion and free-associative sung/rapped bars from partners-in-rhyme Josh Martinez and Sleep. Interest piqued? You can hear more from the duo on their brand new Swine Flew LP, released today to iTunes and available for free streaming via Soundcloud.
