Kounterclockwise "Outside The Lines"

Krip-hop crew Kounterclockwise, comprised of husband and wife Kaya Carine Gabriel and Deacon Burns who were interviewed here on the Amoeblog about a year ago, have just released their latest music video. For the duo's engaging track "Outside The Lines" the music video is animated and directed by Jim Lujan and features Deacon spitting such attention-grabbing, emotionally charged lyrics as: "I'm at the bottom of the great black pit covered in piss and shit, can't do a damn thing about it except call out to Kaya,  drowning in fire water, but i can't breath without it. When you're a never was, hard to remember what it was that made you want to do music. I'm being punished for my habits but I can't control what I inherit. I feel like a hobbit trying to get to Mordor in a fuckin wheelchair, i can't make it. I'm form without content, only content when i'm wasted nothing but abuse and substance. I'm giving you my two-week notice, emotional sickness life makes me nauseous. I feel so useless like the dick on a full-blown paraplegic, life's a bitch!"  The MidWest based Kounterclockwise will be in the Bay Area next month for the Krip-Hop Nation Bay Area mini tour.  More instant info, and also here on the Amoeblog at that time.
