Yip-yip make fractured, home-brewed industrial fusion jazz tunes for hipsters, fashioned with analog synths and drum machines and a real saxophone. Together since 2001, the 25-year olds live together in Orlando, Florida in a space after which they named their previous LP, The Reptile House. To accompany their new album, Two Kings of the Same Kingdom (S.A.F.), the band acquired cheap video equipment and created a visual accompaniment for each track. They've uploaded the whole thing on YouTube, viewable here.
The videos star broken shapes and dissipated color schemes that match perfectly with their winter line of songs. It's tweeked out polyrhythmic synth arrangements flapping and grunting through an acid-wash daydream.
They're playing your town this fall and/or winter, promise.
