Watch “Rush of Blood”, a short film about Merchandise

Dayna Evans

totale nite

In conjunction with the release of their recent record, Totale Nite, Merchandise have shared a 15-minute short documentary on the band that is less narrative than it is totally experimental. It features an original score from Merchandise's Dave Vassolotti, and is directed and edited by frontman Carson Cox. It shows the band engaging in a host of activities with an eerie, mindmelding score that puts normal behavior through an artsy, surreal lens. If you have it in you, you can watch the full thing below. And check out Merchandise at today's Strawberry Fest at NYU, where Impose's very own Maria Sherman will be DJing. Not to be missed.
