Every single song on Now Vs Now’s upcoming new album, The Buffering Cocoon, is brilliant, and you’ll find that out soon enough when it drops September 14th on Jazzland Recordings but, as I’ve noted before, there’s just something about it’s second single, “Silkworm Society”. The song is super cool, of course, but now there are trippy visuals to match from Lee Milby filled with poetry, interpretive dance, and metamorphosis. It’s dope, but you can see what I mean after the jump.
