I wrote a guide to sea vegetables over at my blog. As a companion piece here at the Amoeblog, I thought I’d compile a guide to modern day sea shanties by vegetarian (or former vegetarian, in some cases) songwriters or bands with vegetarian members.

Die Antwoord Outdo Themselves with Latest Song & Video "Cookie Thumper"

Posted by Billyjam, June 18, 2013 11:32pm | Post a Comment


The rap-rooted act Die Antwoord never fail to continually impress with both their supercharged rap/techno music and accompanying other-worldly videos. Their latest single/video "Cookie Thumper," which was published to YouTube earlier today via noisey, is a production of pure brilliance by the trio comprised of Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Ninja, and DJ Hi-Tek. And I just love how this South African group can so effortlessly take all the various extremes of American hip-hop/rap - from nasty sexy to scary eerie - and somehow do a better job of serving it up it than their American pop/rap counterparts; and all the while rapping/singing in their own tongue with just some English words thrown in including some hip-hop references to Naughty By Nature and Ol' Dirty Bastard.

I love these guys, always have, and appreciate how they never attempt to sanitize or water down in any way their whole vibe for mainstream appeal. And this video and song just drive that point home for me. The song is a single from Die Antwoord forthcoming album Donker Mag (to be released by ZEF Recordz in February 2014) while the video, with cinematography by Alexis Zabe and Paul Gilpin with production by ZEF Filmz in association with VICE, is expertly directed by band member Ninja who picked up David Lynch's Eraserhead among his finds in the crates at Amoeba Hollywood - as seen Die Antwoord's entertaining What's In My Bag? below - filmed round same time (Oct 2010) they did an instore at Amoeba San Francisco - pictured left.
