Kid Millions is a busy guy. Besides taking part in our recent 3-Minute Punk Stories event, he also plays in Oneida and leads the drum ensemble Man Forever, who have a new album coming out on Thrill Jockey next month. It’s called Pansophical Cataract, and this video is for an excerpt of the song “Surface Patterns.” Follow Vol. 1 Brooklyn on Twitter, Facebook, Google + and our Tumblr.
