“Gout Lord” video out now
Today, pan-genre iconoclasts LYDIA LASKA reveal a new video for “Gout Lord” at heavily trafficked web-portal CVLTNation.com. The track hails from the band’s critically acclaimed second album, EGO DEATH, released in October of last year by Edged Circle Productions.
The band explains this newest video:
“Recording albums like Ego Death takes up all the time, energy, and resources we’ve got. So after spending all our dough on this album, we had no budget for music videos, but we still wanted to make some. Just before the album was about to be released last fall, drummer/composer Voldswagen threw together a couple of videos for the songs ‘Teslicity, Baby!’ and ‘You’ based on found footage from long-lost decades. But this time around, we just wanted to make an old-school performance video done in our humble rehearsal place.
It was partly filmed by Voldswagen using a phone (the scenes with singer Kandi), and all the band shots were shot by our in-house photographer Martine Petra. Robert Nystrand brought his rudimentary light equipment and made some beautiful, psychedelic veils of flush and filled the whole room with his magic. And when the filming was done a couple of hours later, we asked our long-time friend Anders Børresen to do the editing. We asked for nothing fancy; all we wanted was a psychedelic soup of vivid colors.
And here’s the result! All in all, a no-budget DIY video with no ambitions of being multi-layered or symbolic -this is just rock’n’roll and we like it. Do you, too – do you?”
