We wanted to have an optical illusion thrown in our face this morning, and who better than one of the most innovative, and visually stimulating hip-hop artists we can think of, MF Doom.

We speak for a lot of people in the arts that we were excited to get an advanced copy of Efterklang's newest LP, Piramida, and even more excited to see that a new video has been released for the opening track, Hollow Mountain.
