Antibalas and puppets fight capitalism; new album released on August 20

Antibalas have released a new video for 'Dirty Money', taken off their upcoming fifth album, Antibalas, released August 20 via Daptone Records - have a watch below.

It looks like the band have had a rummage in Jim Henson's store cupboard, whipping out a put-upon office worker puppet who blows a fuse, only to fight the power by getting his top hat-wearing (but, of course) capitalist boss to bust a few moves. The trumpet-flecked afrobeat's rather excellent too.
