d’Eon - “Kill a Man With a Joystick in Your Hand” (video)

[7 January 2011]

By Timothy Gabriele

The song is about as lo-fi as they come. When I first heard it, I thought I’d stumbled across some suburban high school student’s MP3.com page. Yet, there’s something oddly hypnotic about it as well. Little surprise that it comes from a release on hypnagogic label Hippo in Tanks, who’ve also put out music by GAMES, Laurel Halo, and White Car. The video is about as overtly political as any hypnagogic all-star has gotten, merging footage from the Afghan war with promo video fluff and Playstation killing games. Oh, and awkward YouTube dancing girls. Enjoy.
