Prince Rama, ‘So Destroyed’ – New Video
Prince Rama one-ups all those end-of-the-year Top 10 lists with ‘Top Ten Hits of the End of the World,’ the Brooklyn psych-dance duo’s latest album, which dropped last month. Here we have the video for ‘So Destroyed,’ which features a collection of homemade clips submitted by fans for the so-called ‘So Destroyed’ dance contest — and, not surprisingly, the vids feature fans cutting a rug to ‘So Destroyed.’
‘Top Ten Hits of the End of the World’ is a concept album about, well, the end of the world, which “freed [Prince Rama] from the burden of writing straight-up pop music, instead indulging an end-times fervor that makes their music both more urgent and more diffuse,” as Stereogum explained. The disc hasn’t turned up on many year-end lists so far, but with the Mayan-prophesized doomsday of 12/21/12 around the corner, it could make for the perfect soundtrack.
