Barry Walker Jr. is back with a new music video for his latest single “Black Shit Blues”. The song has a very Beck’s “Loser” vibe, highly psychedelic to the point you feel you’re in a trip.
About the video, Barry comments:
“The video for ‘Black Shit Blues’ is a Pacific Northwestern myth-science tale of a wanderer passing through, conceived by Portland writer Shane Hayden. Shot on the northern Oregon coast and also at the Deer Lodge in Portland, presumably synchronous scenes interleave to show just what a citizen might be faced with on the day to day. Certainly strange choices, and certainly the opportunity to indeterminately delve in a little too deeply. And a Karaoke party! The words of the song are reflected in these themes. And other themes, like skin damage, isolation, waiting in line, sea level rise, impotence, impunity. Things we must live with. Things we probably can’t change. The music, though, feels good. And there’s the Yod steel player reminding you to kick the dark magus back every now and then. And, you know, just enjoy some Kokomo slide guitar. Not head in the sand, but toes in the sand, when you can.”
