Back in April, TV on the Radio singer/writer Tunde Adebimpe talked to SPIN about his main group’s gradual return to the spotlight but also let us know about a new project: Higgins Black Magic Waterproof Band. The quartet has a self-titled EP out right now grab it and now a video for the brooding first taste “The Blast the Boom.” The experimental crew’s handle comes from a brand of ink and that’s not for nothing: both Adebimpe and guitarist Alex Holden are, or have been, professional illustrators. They put those skills to work in the stop-motion short above, in which a gallant wolf man has a series of unfortunate run-ins with a giant fire-blasting skull. Pick up Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band via iTunes or Insound. And by the way, it’s “HIWABLAMABA” for short.
