An Epick Story of Love and Puppets

We didn't deliberately set out to make today music day on Kuriositas but we had to make space for this little gem by Epick featuring Elle King.  This is the new video for the NYC based hip hop artist and is entitled I don't Mind. Puppet meister and animator Jonah Oskow  has just finished shooting it.  It made us smile!

While we are not sure about the legality of inter-species love affairs we would have to make an exception here as they seem generally quite happy - albeit a tad dysfunctional - though we might have been spared a few of the bedroom scenes!

Born on the Upper west side of New York City, Epick has been making music since he was a Cathedral School chorister - which no doubt has nothing to do with his affinity to puppets.  Although his music is yet to go global we are assured that his first EP (the oddly titled Six Inches - well, I never!) was appreciated by all his friends and family who rated it as really good.

That's how we classify this video - really, really good - and it deserves more than the two thousand or so hits it has had on YouTube!  This is an artist who needs to be at the forefront a little more - he has already made successful commercial music for the likes of Honda and Sprite so you probably know his music, if not his name already.  Epick, this was epic!
