High Castle drummer Shaggy Reaper directed this VHS-only clip for the band’s “Bee Medal,” off the Spirit of the West full length out on Zum Recordings. Watching the video, it’s a little strange to think we once relied on the fuzzy, faded strangeness of VHS. Reaper utilizes the medium’s creepy feel to maximum effect, though, adeptly pairing it with a dynamic burst of warped punk.
High Castle performs at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records with Uzi Rash and Lenz on December 17th (7pm, $3-5, All Ages). Hear a couple of songs from Spirit of the West below.
