Is this the best video ever?
It's for 'Drumroll', one of the best tracks off Minneapolis rapper P.O.S.' new album 'Never Better', and one of many that uses a runaway drum roll as foundations for a track. If you've not heard this guy before he's a rare example of - whisper it with gritted teeth - rap-rock actually working. Although that's probably an unfair tag; he's more of a hip-hop guy raised on hardcore. Either way he harnesses enough aggression from both while skating the thin ice of credibility associated with this kind of hybrid.
'Goodbye' is more of a straight-up pop tune, like a less cringey Kanye. Ignore the line about Latin being a dead language and turn up the bass...
