With CMJ 2012 kicking off in less than a week, we still have plenty more music to share before the Young Giant Records and Maimed & Tamed showcase at Arlene’s Grocery on Thursday October 18 from 12-6pm. Today we will be sharing a new video from Brooklyn via Seattle group Motive. “It’s Illicit” finds the band buried in dirt, eating earthworms and turned to plant zombies by a very creepy bearded man. Sounds like my kinda Wednesday afternoon.
In addition to playing the Young Giant + M&T showcase next week, Motive was recently featured in the Deli’s Best of New York issue last month and have gained some YouTube popularity when their song “Nobody Eats My Dinner” was featured in this video.
