If you’re a fan of latin, afrobeat, reggae, and into bands like The Budos Band or Slavik Soul Party, then you’ll dig “Little Black Book” by Super Hi-Fi.
The song is energetic and lively, and will definitely get your body moving, if not your mind. It’s the kind of song that’s perfect for bringing laid back parties to life, or tripping on hallucinogens.
On to the video:
It’s a common story in the concrete jungle how someone gets stuck in a job that they hate, and then entering an unwanted cycle of self-loathing and self-hate. In the video’s case, the focus is on a meter maid who runs around checking parking meters in his “Little Black Book.” The stop motion video is directed by musician and visual artist, Stefan Zeniuk, whose work has been featured in NPR and Billboard.
“The rhythm of the fast guitar balanced with the slow and long trombone melodies initially popped into my mind a sense of frenetic and fast moving images, abstract and schizoid, fast enough to actually lull the viewer into a meditative and static state,” said Zeniuk.
“Little Black Book” is the first single off the band’s upcoming EP called “Blue and White.”
