Get your freek on….

I don’t do many music recommendations but I haven’t been able to turn my eyes away from Die Antwoord’s (pronounced Dee Ahntvord) newest music video for their song I Fink U Freeky off their new album Ten$ion. Die Antwoord is a white rap group from Cape Town whose lyrics are in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. They rap in the Zef style which can best be described to us Americans as South African white trash fabulous or according to Wikipedia “modern and trashy and also includes out-of-date, discarded cultural and style elements” and according to Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord “It’s associated with people who soup their cars up and rock gold and shit. Zef is, you’re poor but you’re fancy.”

If you like that then google “Enter the Ninja.”

**the visuals are a bit, um, weird…

  1. I have loved this band for a long time, although in the UK you will only ever find their music video’s on at 4am when only really drunk or insomniac people watch music tv. I don’t think the Brit’s embrace strange very often…Lady Gaga is as strange as they go!
