You couldn’t stop Lo-Pan if you wanted to, and you don’t. Fresh off their March tour that included a stop at Small Stone Records’ annual SXSW showcase, Ohio’s finest in fuzz have just unveiled their first official video, for the track “Chichen Itza.”
The song comes off Lo-Pan’s 2011 landmark outing, Salvador, and the video, directed by Joe Fortunato, shows the band doing what they do best: Multi-tasking. Robe-clad frontman Jeff Martin soulfully belts out “Chichen Itza,” singing into his spatula as he cooks morning breakfast. Grapefruits are hoisted in metallic paean, peppers are chopped, bacon is slabbed, and like everything Lo-Pan does, it’s an absolute blast.
Check out “Chichen Itza” here:
Never ones to rest (ever), Lo-Pan will embark on a weekend jaunt with West Virginian instrumental heavy legends Karma to Burn starting tonight, March 22, before heading out on a Midwest run with fellow Ohioans, Mockingbird.
