Current events have certainly led to the choice of many musicians to take on causes, and this rebellion against the establishment has always defined rock music. Brooklyn based Alt-Psych Rock Band Karabas Barabas have taken a position with their newest video release, “Casino Tears,” off of their debut LP, Return of the Sexy Demon. Filmed for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest, “Casino Tears.”
While the Sexy Demon ran amok, the angels whispered in our ear “Let it thunder let it rain, let the buffalo remain”. So we visited the people of standing rock, where we met a great chief, who was 133 years old. He told us his tale, and in turn we wrote “Casino Tears”.
Now is the time to stand with the indigenous people of the world, because the demon is out for blood and revenge. – Karabas Barabas
