Dan Friel’s Breathtaking “Thumper” Gets A Video

Dan Friel’s song, “Thumper”, continues to amaze us, just visually this time.

Former Brooklyn noise-rock collective Parts & Labor member Dan Friel will release a new solo album, Total Folklore, on February 19th through Thrill Jockey Records. He’s released the experimental noise conundrum that is “Thumper”. Prepare yourself, it’s amazing.

Friel on the assembly process:

“I assembled some simple music boxes that play a continuous loop of “Thumper” (a song on the new album). It’s something I’ve been meaning to try since visiting this place (Museum Speelklok) a few years ago: http://www.museumspeelklok.nl. Each box is mounted on a metal can (mostly olive oil so far – it’s a good shape) to make it resonate louder, and the physical loops are made out of assorted funky plastics from the Canal Plastics scrap bin.”
