“Epizootics!,” from Scott Walker’s new album Bish Bosch, showcases the artist working at the peak of his powers. Hard to believe that the enigmatic recluse will be 70 years old next January. The voice, lyrics and attitude are more powerful than ever. Simply amazing.
The video directed by animator Olivier Groulx does a marvelous job of integrating image with sound in a rare and artful way that expands rather than diminishes the song. Future collaborations between Walker and Groulx is an exciting prospect.
Bish Bosch will be released on December 4 and is available here.
