Aesop Rock and TOBACCO Join Forces as Malibu Ken in "Corn Maze" Video

Malibu Ken, the collaboration between underground hip-hop icon Aesop Rock and analog producer TOBACCO (of Black Moth Super Rainbow), have shared the video for “Corn Maze,” the second single and opening track off their forthcoming self-titled debut, out Jan. 18, 2019, through Rhymesayers.

TOBACCO’s dusty, analog-synth-heavy soundscapes find their equal in Aesop Rock’s old-school wordplay thickets across “Corn Maze,” creating a shuffling boom-bap monster with just the right amount of contemporary paranoia. The vintage feel of the track is mirrored in the Rob Shaw-directed video’s psychedelic, cel-shaded Saturday cartoon characters, who find themselves combining into a similar mishmash of genres, styles and eras to form a Voltron of their own.
