Caddywhompus are sharing the video for “Decent” from the band’s recently released Odd Hours. The video was made in Houston during March of 2017 with Derek Beck, Jono Foley, Derrick Mitchell, and with help from Alexander Beck and Edwin Terrell. Almost all effects are in-camera or practical, the stop-motion animations – inspired by experimental filmmaker Len Lye – were projected onto two screens on either side of the band as they performed the song well over 20 times. Derek’s concept, the rotating mirror wall, was designed and built by Logan Beck and Rootlab and now lives at Ronin Art House.
The New Orleans duo of Chris Rehm (guitar/vocals) and Sean Hart (drums) have created their most focused and mature album yet, a glowing example of their growth as songwriters. On an album of jagged art pop, jazzy structures, and unbelievably kinetic energy filtered through an array of hooks and cultivated madness, Caddywhompus are at their absolute best, blazing through complex progressions with a warm pop-center.
