PLANET B: "ABC" MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES VIA BROOKLYNVEGAN
BrooklynVegan has premiered Planet B's newest music video, for the track "[A] Not At All [B] Somewhat [C] Very Much."
The video, created by Displaced/Replaced (with footage shot by Becky DiGiglio and Stomp The Holy Bones), captures the ominous, overtly political tension of Planet B's music, opening with a Cornel West quote and cycling through scenes of civil unrest.
The "ABC" track appears on Planet B's self-titled debut album, out now on Ipecac Recordings and Three One G. Guests on the album include hip-hop pioneer Kool Keith, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Martin Atkins (ex-PiL, Killing Joke, Ministry, Pigface), Gabe Serbian (The Locust), Sonny Kay (The VSS, Angel Hair), and more.
"Justin Pearson has made his name with spazzy, noisy weirdo-rock outfits like the Locust, Retox and Dead Cross, but his project Planet B — a collaboration with hip-hop producer Luke Henshaw — might be his most left-field yet. The duo smashes together strains of hardcore, hip-hop, industrial and old-school horror-movie scores into the unique, genre-defying sound."
"Planet B, the collaboration of forward-thinking hardcore lifer Justin Pearson and sonic hip-hop alchemist Luke Henshaw... Henshaw’s beat science and ear for sound are a perfect match to accompany Pearson’s incessant need to bulldoze the accepted boundaries of whatever genre he chooses to work in."
