Watch: The Limousines' Amazing (Unofficial) Video Gets Made as You Watch It

Bet you can't Photoshop this fast.
  • Bet you can't Photoshop this fast.
So this is cool: The latest (unofficial) video from about the soon-to-blow-up Bay Area electo-pop duo the Limousines shows you how it was made while it plays. Or it gets made while you watch. Or something. Its billed as a "behind-the-scenes" sort of thing, but that sort of undersells it. The clip challenges our grasp of how music and videos generally work (with the making of first and the watching of second), all while showing off some hefty digi-wizardry. And did we mention "Very Busy People" is a very catchy song? Prepare for some hook-laden mind-bending, folks:

Director and producer Mathieu Wothke and the others who made this thing sure earned their keep, eh?

The Limousines are headlining the Rickshaw Stop on Feb. 3. The band's latest album, Get Sharp, was just released on limited edition, autographed vinyl if you're into that sort of thing.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
