super furry frontman gruff rhys has released a sparkly new video for “sensations in the dark” from his freshly released “hotel shampoo” solo album. the video has nothing to do with his hotel shampoo project and im not sure what it has to do with these “dark sensations.”
super furry animals frontman, gruff rhys, has revealed a new art piece in the form of a house/hotel/building thing constructed out of hotel shampoo packaging which he has amassed over his 15 years as a traveling musician.
dubbed “hotel shampoo”, the piece is comprised of items beyond just hotel shampoo, but also things like shoe horns, sewing kits, slippers, matchbooks, and assorted courtesy items typically found in a hotel. each item recalls fond or not-so-fond memories of his stops in lieu of a traditional written journal.
in a message to his fans, gruff details the difficulties of smuggling liquids and bottled items due to stricter air travel regulations, and personal instances where such deviant acts proved self-soiling.
coincidentally, gruff has titled his new album “hotel shampoo” as an accompanying soundtrack to his art piece. the album drops on valentines day in 2011.
a video for the first single, “shark ridden waters“, featuring a grizzly gruff and a sexy lady has been circling the treacherous internet waters. watch here:
as the gruffington post publication has so informed me, a new gruff rhys track from his forthcoming album has surfaced called “shark ridden waters”. promise of the album being his “most accomplished yet” isnt such a bold statement considering the stripped-down, one-man bedroom caliber recordings of his solo past and the unlistenable collab with vcr repairman tony da gatorra.
tackle the freebie “shark ridden waters” mp3 and splash around with it why dont u?
