Next week Lakutis drops his new album, Three Sea Shells, following the single “Body Scream.” Now he’s got a new video for the track “Jesus Piece,” directed by Kate Bryant. While it’s mostly just Lakutis rapping directly to the camera, progressively crazier shit happens to him. It starts out simple and striking, with just a trickle of blood running from his nose, but eventually he’s getting slimed, Nickelodeon-style, with gold paint and rapping under blacklights that make him look like a skeleton. None of it would work at all if it wasn’t for the fact that Lakutis is such an intense performer (he doesn’t react to any of it), and even without all special effects you can’t take your eyes off him. -- Stereogum
