Aesop Rock and TOBACCO Revisit Malibu Ken Album with New Music Video for “Tuesday”

Aesop Rock & TOBACCO are Malibu Ken – Tuesday (Official Video)

“Tuesday” here:

Hot off the holiday weekend, Malibu Ken, the duo of verbose Hip-Hop mainstay Aesop Rock and analog-synth experimenter TOBACCO (of Black Moth Super Rainbow), have expressed gratitude for the week’s most underrated day with a fresh video for “Tuesday,” a standout from their self-titled album (released back in January). The Rob Shaw-directed clip will likely give you flashbacks to this past weekend as the parallel themes of food, family, and hallucinatory nightmare logic feel particularly seasonally appropriate.

Watch “Corn Maze” video:

This marks a great opportunity to revisit the Malibu Ken album. As a whole, the 10-song album exudes a creative synergy that exceeds expectations, as TOBACCO’s pseudo-futuristic production style provides an unpredictably infectious and sublime bedrock for Aesop’s meticulously detailed narratives. The collection is rounded out by nightmarish sleeve art by GUNSHO replete with die-cut gatefold LP & CD sleeves (that took home awards for Best Vinyl Gatefold and Best in Show at the Making Vinyl convention) that include a perforated pop-out mask with elastic string.
