Video: Shit Robot "Take Em Up feat. Nancy Whang"
- Words: Patric Fallon
From DFA veteran Shit Robot's debut long-player, From the Cradle to the Rave, comes the audio behind these psychedelic images. LCD Soundsystem and Juan MacLean crooner Nancy Whang is at the center of the "Take Em Up" single and its accompanying video, a wonderful exhibition of rotoscoping from director Eoghan Kidney and his crack team of animators. While Whang wanders around what are presumably some of Ireland's industrial cityscapes, barren railroad tracks, and back alleys, she leaves behind stuttering images of herself adorned in a load of colors and effects. Check out the video up top, and look for the 12" single of "Take Em Up" with remixes from Marc E, John Talabot, Michael Mayer, and more, out later this month.
