After dropping two tracks off of the much anticipated follow-up to his cult 1996 album Dr. Octagonecologyst, Dr. Octagon has released a video for “Flying Waterbed,” and is now streaming the new album, Moosebumps: an exploration into modern day horripilation.
The video, directed by Joel Knoernschild, stars scratchmaster DJ Q-Bert as well as Dan the Automator, who produced the album and infused it with Octagon’s signature surrealist/horror/sci-fi sounds. They’re at a Tokyo temple, assessing the martial arts skills of a tea master. Meanwhile, Paul Banks of Interpol, shown through a sort of marijuana haze, helps Kool Keith (aka Dr. Octagon) out with the vocals, as does a paper dragon.
But the real treat: Moosebumps, out April 6, is now streaming in its entirety over at NPR Music. Rest assured there are still tickets left to Octagon’s Brooklyn Bowl show on April 5, and Handsome Boy Modeling School (Dan the Automator’s project with Prince Paul of De La Soul) has been added as the opener.
