More proof David Bowie isn't human





His best song in at least 14 years. Definitely in my top 5 tracks of 2015.


The video may give you Jacobs Ladder-esque nightmares, but the song itself beats the crap out of any teeny bopper pop or mainstream rap (same thing basically) that has been released in recent memory.

I did enjoy the beginning and end segments, which are the same basic tune, but the middle part was a little too fucked for me. I wonder if he programs his own drums, or if he has a beats boy. He probably has Barnaby the beats boy on retainer 24/7 365, and he brings him out once a decade to program 8 minutes of beats, and if those beats ain't fresh, then Barnaby is cleansed and doned.

The video was definitely nightmare material, which is actually good, because I don't have enough nightmares these days, and nightmares can be exciting.

I've watched it 5 times now and at the end of each time I'm always like, "What the fuck did I just watch?" My mind desperately wants to make sense of whats going on but it can't be done.

The beats definitely sound synthy to me, just like the blippy bassline. The rhythm section is still fresh and unique.

If Justin Bieber and Skrillex did a collab and it came out sounding like this, I wonder if I would suddenly like them...

PS: This morning I learned that ICD-10 code N44.00 = Torsion of the testis. And my balls immediately ached thereafter.

Listened to it at least 10 times now. That's 100 minutes of Bowie video in about a week.
