While we’re gearing up to welcome Ron Gallo back to Philly for a Free at Noon concert later this week, Gallo is gearing up to release his new Heavy Meta LP on February 3rd. The Nashville-via-Philadelphia bandleader has been dropping preview tracks left and right over the last few months and this week shared a video for album cut “Kill the Medicine Man.”

Taking the form of a home video infomercial in the beginning, the clip (timestamped appropriately on April 20th) promotes something called “airijuana,” a “product that saved [Gallo’s] life” and is perhaps an alternative to the more common leafy green variety. Paired with the crunchy garage rock that fills the crevices of Heavy Meta, Gallo and friends (including some folks in Philly psych outfit Needle Points) pass around some airijuana while they’re hanging out at home, in a bar, and on top of a UFO-type mound next to the highway. This is one thing you can try at home – “For a free sample, just breathe!” the scrolling text reads at the end.

Watch “Kill the Medicine Man” below and sign up for Gallo’s Free at Noon show here. He and the band will be back in April with Hurray for the Riff Raff at World Cafe Live as well.
