Top Story: Get Ready Detroit! Odd Hours “Khaleesi” EP and Video Release Event

Odd Hours NEW2

Khaleesi is the fourth release from Detroit post-punk band Odd Hours. It comprises the Khaleesi single, music video and remixes by artists like Tunde Olaniran, Eddie Logix, Lol-lo-Lohanz, and others. The EP with audio single, remixes and video are being released on Dec. 6 at Corktown Studios in Detroit.   

The release event is an art exhibit centered around the video and EP release,  with art created for, and inspired by the song and video. These pieces include the set installation of 400 hand-cut acrylic pieces in the shape of reflective crystalline daggers, and a seven-foot tall black metal throne, which were used in the “hell” set of the video.

Visitors can also observe brand new video installations by Beste, and of course scattered Vietnamese hell money along with the new video Khaleesi. The video itself includes a speedboat ride with Beste’s 70 year old, bandana-clad grandfather, and the band throwing fifty pounds of hell money into a raging bonfire. “From the way we look on stage, to using my grandfather in our videos, we want to be dark and sexy, but also confuse you by being weird and playful,” says Beste.

The video mixes striking visuals inspired by the 90’s punk/Americana look of artist Ssion and the luxurious, cold, gothic look of the black dance scene in the 80’s movie “Legend.” The name of course is the made up name for “queen” from the HBO show Game of Thrones.

The Khaleesi music video was produced by Odd Hours and Gold House Media, directed by Kevin Eckert, with art direction from Tunde Olaniran.

The new Odd Hours music video “Khaleesi” includes:

Ritual hell-money burning

A disguised septuagenarian grandfather driving a motorboat

A petulant ruler in her golden money palace

Custom-built seven-foot black steel throne, in hell

A pure black, kilt-wearing guardian

The newest single from Odd Hours

Odd Hours is the dark, sexy and avant-garde alternative to the 4/4 dance and friendly folk-based indie pop being hoisted by mainstream and indie radio.

The video release event is at 7. p.m. on Dec. 6 at Corktown Studios, 2707 14th Street, Detroit, Michigan 48216.

Lil Wayne – “It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America”

If social media are supposed to help spark national conversations, why do so many turn so ugly?

This comes up in the wake of the Lil Wayne stomp-on-the-flag controversy, which set off a torrent of abuse from Facebook posters who said he desecrated the flag.

Even after he attempted to explain himself — no desecration intended, he said on Facebook (45.6 million “likes”) — some critics kept up with the abuse, even to the point of wishing him dead from a seizure.

It started over the weekend when video footage showed the rapper, who’s been hospitalized several times recently for seizures, walking all over an American flag while shooting his new music video for God Bless Amerika in New Orleans.
