DFA’s Brooklyn duo, Holy Ghost! has a new track out on the singles label, Green Label Sound. If you’re into it, It’s free for download and along with old ass synthesizers, features the sound of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
The video, directed by Ben Fries, is pretty much a scene by scene remake of New Order’s “Confusion” video, heavy on the early 80’s New York night life footage and producer Arthur Baker. I bet that late night pizza tasted better then.
From the press release: “Getting legendary producer Arthur Baker to reprise his role in the video was Holy Ghost’s! biggest coup. “We were going to have James [Murphy] play the Arthur Baker character,” says Nick Millhiser, one half of Holy Ghost!, “but one night we were out at a bar and we ran into Baker. Alex told him about the video, and Arthur said, ‘I want to play myself.’ We couldn’t really say no!”
