As Chicago-based rockers Longface gear up for the release of their new LP Hillbilly Wit on Oct. 27, a slew of compelling tracks have been trickling out. Now, thanks to the animation skills of experimental rapper Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, you can add a compelling and sufficiently crazy visual to boot.

Ogbonnaya's surreal video accompanies 'Howdy,' a raucous track that rips and roars with emotional fury. If this doesn't get you hyped up for Hillbilly Wit, I don't know what will.
