Look, I’m just a caveman. It seems like maybe it’s been a while since Italian heavy psych rockers Deadpeach posted the video below for this track from their 2014 album, Aurum (review here), but I happen to think it’s never too late to correct an oversight — I’ve gone back into posts and fixed typos half a decade old, if you want proof — so if you want to put the “Traffic” video under the heading of ‘better than never,’ that’s cool by me. The timing actually works out decently well for the clip to come to my attention, since Deadpeach have a vinyl sale going on now for Aurum and their other two full-lengths through their Bandcamp, about which you can read more below.
As for “Traffic” itself, as someone who’s spent a good deal of 2016 sitting in it, I can safely say the song and its video are both a decidedly more pleasant experience than the name might convey. The clip is taken from public domain art footage, but there’s still nudity, so it gets the NSFW tag above — someone walking by your desk, say, might not have the same aesthetic or contextual appreciation — but even if you click play and listen to the track while doing something else, its instrumental flow is worth digging into for sure and makes the process easier through natural tones and a fluid, subdued psychedelic push. Deadpeach, it seems, aren’t so much issuing challenges as invitations. Dress casual. Come as you are.
It’s that kind of party, which I guess makes me fashionably late in getting it posted.
Dig into “Traffic” below, and please enjoy:
