Stockholm-based Pistachios (of Blacklist) has crafted an eerily compelling short-filmish music video for Bulgarian musician Bogdan IrkÃ¼k (a.k.a. BULGARI). I really like the way the still sequence is used as a flashback device, and the hallucinogenic tribal imagery near the end is a perfectly constructed bit of pointed psychedelia.
Like a lot of the talent on Blacklist’s roster, Pistachios comes out of left field. Their work is eclectic but consistently innovative. They deserve big props for rocking out on the fringe without alienating their audiences.
