Exclusive premiere: The Love Supreme sweats to the oldies in ‘I Want You (Don’t Wanna Talk About It)’ video
Good afternoon, meat bags. Need a jolt of energy on this perfectly average Hump Day? Perhaps some inspiration to go to that Jazzercise class after work? Check out this video from Brooklyn neo-soul act The Love Supreme, which is basically a B-12-packed power smoothie in digital form.
Channeling Richard Simmons by way of Tim and Eric, the clip starts off as an infomercial for something called “The Fruit Oppressor.” “I want you to believe in this product,” says the unctuous salesman. But who’s that hitting him over the head with a frying pan? Someone who believes in The Love Supreme, that’s who!
Cut to a Technicolor dancercise class led by charismatic LS vocalist Tim Pioppo as its eager participants bounce around a dirty Bushwick loft to the buoyant tune. They play air trumpet, shimmy, do flips, and most importantly, remember to stretch. At some point, the lights go down, the outfits magically change, and the party continues. By the time Tim dances his way back into the juicer infomercial, you’ll be pulling on your tube socks ready to take the 30 Day Love Supreme Challenge, guaranteed funkiness or your money back.
Anyone in the New York City area can attend the party in person at Rough Trade April 2nd or Brooklyn Night Bazaar April 11th.
