‘Brick Body Complex’ is a powerful statement made through incensed verses and potent visuals. It introduces the character of “Iron Hood,” a super-powered protector of Chicago’s Robert Taylor Homes, a public housing project that displaced thousands of residents when it was torn down a decade ago. In this video, Iron Hood, played by Open Mike Eagle, leaps into action against a mysterious masked villain representing the forces of gentrification.

“On ‘Brick Body Complex,’ Open Mike Eagle fuses the source and its voice, literally becoming the building as he delivers a defiant blues... Both the song and Eagle's fifth solo LP comprise an ambitious attempt to deconstruct and examine a warped mythology that reduces housing project residents to violence-prone, drug-addled subhumans.” – NPR Music

The video marks the second installment of “Dark Comedy Television,” a music video theme conceptualized by Open Mike Eagle. Each video from ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ is formatted as a television show called Dark Comedy Prime News on a cable network programmed by Mike himself.

 The first single, “95 Radios (feat. Has-Lo),” was hailed as “an instant classic” by VICE Noisey. Watch “95 Radios (feat. Has-Lo)” here:

‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ was just called Open Mike Eagle’s “most accomplished [album] yet” by New York Magazine in their fall preview that ran this week.
