So for 3 years now I’ve played the shit out of ‘Contageous’, Wilder’s only solo song released to date. Then today, out of nowhere, a video for ‘Contageous’ and an EP with 3 new songs. For added interest points, the EP is co-produced by El-P.
The video is wildly NSFW, juxtaposing American Apparel-styled soft-core innocence porn with impassioned keytar soloing and shots of Wilder in 70s lover man mode, chest hair flying and all that. The EP is reminiscent of Wilder’s work with Chin Chin, but on first spin it also sounds sleazier and more spacey and better for it.
Video premiered via OKP
