David Lynch has just released a new short film, and it’s not very long on plot. Premiered at the Festival of Disruption earlier this year, “Ant Head” runs 13 minutes and features–writes IndieWire–“one shot that depicts a block of cheese in the shape of a head being overtaken by an army of crawling ants.” And it’s all set to music by Thought Gang, Lynch’s experimental collaboration with composer Angelo Badalamenti. You can pick up a copy of their brand new album, eponymously called Thought Gang, here.

A man, an I-Phone X and a metal trash can, patiently trips. I though LSD was a thing of the past. The music is indeed an acid music evolution and the poetry, a verbalization of the mellow freak out of Mr. Lynch! All in all, it’s all about the sound track.
