Locally-rooted percussionist and experimental soundscaper Michul Kuun is readying the latest release from his project NAH. Mortal Glitch is out on October 23rd, and one of its teaser tracks — the harsh noise rager “Let Em Fly” — recently got a music video treatment care of frequent collaborator Gabriel N. Coffey.

As a drone camera starts at street level, it gradually rises above the Market-Frankford el as a train passes by the intersection of Front Street and Cecil B Moore Avenue. In the foreground, we see longstanding brick businesses, garages, and homes of the riverwards. In the distance, we see the looming cranes and new construction of ever-accelerating gentrification.

The song’s vocals are layered and deconstructed, and though the lyrics (as posted on NAH’s Bandcamp) don’t explicitly address the trauma of neighborhood change and displacement, the atmosphere nevertheless seems to informed them: “They just woke up and then they died / It’s been a while they only cry / It’s not enough to just get by / Let em fly.”

Watch below, and grab a pre-order of Mortal Glitch at Bandcamp. NAH also released a macabre, frenetic video for another pre-release single, “Ruby Fucking Red,” which you can see here.
