Raging Recommends: Die Antwoord

If you’ve never heard of our monthly guest columnist, click here for a Bastard primer. For those of you already familiar, Raging has decided to bring in the new year with a bit of fantasy and gore. Above is a teaser video for rap/rave musicians, Die Antwoord and their new album, TEN$ION, releasing February 7th. The video really defies description and utilizes themes, visuals and characters not typically associated with rap or rave culture. In fact, I’m not even sure it relates directly to any established musical culture. Metal perhaps? But that’s why it’s so damn appealing. The band presents a persona I’ve never quite seen before, don’t completely comprehend, but ultimately appreciate and respect.
