This artwork creeps me out.
Easily one of the most talked about tracks on Bilalâ€™s Airtightâ€™s Revenge LP (2010), â€œRobotsâ€ is a thought-provoking record that questions the use of manipulative propaganda by corporate media and the government. Fittingly, on Election Day 2010, Bilal teamed up with French directorMikael Colombu to release the provocative video so jam-packed with social commentary that if you blink you risk missing another jab. Through the multi-media journey the viewer sees the world of politics through Bilalâ€™s eyes. As you watch â€œRobotsâ€ youâ€™ll soon find yourself paying very close attention to what is really going on, just as the lyrics to the song urge the listener to do.
