As the relentless buzz and hum of the new DODSSANG TEMPEL video for “INTERVENTION II” seeps into my skin I can feel the hairs on my arms slowly rising. And it’s weird how slow they’re moving, like I can feel each individual hair beginning to lean upward like little antennae feeling for a signal. I think the intervention is working.
And how could it not when DODSSANG TEMPEL uses such damning sounds? It sounds like the locusts are working their way across the land, leaving nothing but ruin and rot in their wake. It sounds like flesh being scraped by gravel as we drag ourselves on our knees before Mother Earth as she gives us our reckoning. It sounds like she’s tired of our belief that we’re on top of a false hierarchy and the rest of the natural world is taking their vengeance. It sounds like our own technology used against us.
SPIRITUAL INTERVENTION is their new album out now on ANNIHILVS POWER ELECTRONIX — get it here. Today we’re lucky to be sharing the video for “INTERVENTION II” — don’t say you weren’t warned.
