Justin Kalk Orchestra Releases Video for "Dirty Thing"

The Justin Kalk Orchestra has tossed out this nugget in hopes of calming fans foaming at the mouth for the summer release of their second album, “Volcano.” “Dirty Thing” utilizes Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman (Christ, the cover. Give it to me.) and gets the band involved in the claymation on this new video. The result is fun, yet oddly nostalgic and unsettling at the same time. And rest assured, the giraffes make it in the video, and the band hits just as hard in this new single, and their accompanying haze of blues and psychedelia is just as impenetrable. Of course, hell is more likely to freeze over than Kalk walking into a project at anything less than a breakneck swagger. -Terra James-Jura
