Aesop Rock deals with animals and bleakness in music video for “Dorks”

aesop rock dorks video

Aesop Rock works with animals and potions in his new music video for “Dorks,” taken from his excellent new LP, The Impossible Kid, which you should listen to and buy immediately.

The Rob Shaw-directed video is a slight departure from Aesop’s other recent visual output, such as the video for “Blood Sandwich,” as “Dorks” takes a darker, bleaker turn as there’s someone who is determined to hunt Aesop down and shoot him.

You can check out the video below.
