Video Premiere: P.O.S. “Purexed”

14 Jul

Rhymesayers Entertainment keeps on releasing those videos from P.O.S.‘s manic week of filming for the Never Better record. This video is fourth of six out there and stars South Minneapolis, Uptown and fans at a garage party just about as much as Stef Alexander himself.“Purexed” was the key to the album as a whole when I first started listening to it- the opening tracks (“Let It Rattle”/”Drumroll”/”Savion Glover”) were all familiar from shows and previous releases so “Purexed” felt like the gatekeeper track to the record. The sonic tensions and contradictions, the breakneck drums under the ethereal, universal organ and little twinkling shimmer mirror the confidence with which faces down the insecurities of the self-image, love, and getting the good music out to friends, to build family. By situating himself in the middle of that tension and making it a fierce, uplifting experience P.O.S. sets up the central themes of Never Better, and with a track it’ hard not to love. Like the man says, “Something more than a song/Hatin’? Aw, c’mon.”

Also, because it was there on the Rhymesayers news feed, here is video from the great Eyedea & Abilities Intermedia show (written about here and here) last June. Seriously, run, don’t walk to pick up By The Throat on July 21.
