Less than two weeks after the release of their full-length debut, Lil Daggers, Miami’s muddiest psych rockers, have released a video for “King Corpse”, a song released last year on their 4-song 7” Livid Records release. While it’s an oddball move to release a video for a song that came out a year ago, it’s a smart way to re-introduce equally strong tracks while folks from all over are starting to pay attention (accolades from Nylon mag, BBC, RCRDLBL, and Sound on the Sound).
The “King Corpse” vid dizzyingly follows a hooded convenient store thief through the backstreets of Miami while his dickhead boss chases him. I’d never run that much for vengeance or booze, but it’s nice to put the Daggers’ music to a particular crime.
The video was directed by Matthew Prickett, a 25-year-old Miami resident from Worksop, England. The Lil Daggers self-titled debut (also on Livid) is available digitally, while the limited-to-500 black vinyl LP can be pre-ordered now and shipped out late May.
