Aesop Rock & TOBACCO are Malibu Ken – Corn Maze (Official Video)

Malibu Ken, the duo comprised of verbose hip hop mainstay Aesop Rock and abstract-fidelity analog-synth experimenter TOBACCO (of Black Moth Super Rainbow), have shared a video for “Corn Maze,” an indelible anti-social anthem from their forthcoming self-titled album (due January 18th via Rhymesayers).

The Rob Shaw-directed clip depicts Aesop in an insomniac daze where bizarre late night cartoons seem to become self-aware, which proves a sympathetic pairing with TOBACCO’s heady, distorted beats.

As a whole, the 10-song album exudes a creative synergy that exceeds expectations, as TOBACCO’s pseudo-futuristic production style provides an unpredictably infectious and sublime bedrock for Aesop’s meticulously detailed narratives. The collection is rounded out by nightmarish sleeve art by GUNSHO replete with die-cut gatefold LP’s & CD sleeves that include a pop-out Malibu Ken masks with elastic string.
