Watch a Mind-Melting New Future Ape Tapes Video

The music of local experimental crew Future Ape Tapes is difficult to categorize but easy to lose your mind to: on the group’s new album, Pyramirrormid (from which you can hear some samples here), noise-blasted hip hop beats sit comfortably alongside psychedelic sound collage and damaged electronica.

On Friday, Tiny Mix Tapes premiered the video for “Man With the Eagle Eye,” a typically mind-melting track from the new tape, which you can nab at the band’s show on the UGA campus Wednesday evening or via Hooker Vision starting Sept. 4.

Watch the clip, directed by band member Michael Lauden (also of Scab Queen and murk daddy flex), below:
