Big Black Delta Share “Air Conditioned Dork” Video

Today, Big Black Delta shares the official music for “Air Conditioned Dork” via Louder Than War. The track is off of his album 4, which was released earlier this year and available everywhere now.


“A couple of records ago, a writer had written some pretty nasty things about me and my music. I had never met the gentleman, but he went after my looks, dress, music, etc., enough to where it felt personal. Being the alcoholic mess that I was, I really let it hurt me in unnecessary ways. I didn’t have the understanding at the time to see that the embarrassment and pain that had caused was not necessary. So I imagined this sub floor of Dante’s Hell where you just had these air conditioned dorks floating around saying spiteful things like if Terry Gilliam directed Dune. So you have this guy working through some chords on a piano trying to write a song, and in come these floating critics, singing to you like a Greek chorus,” Big Black Delta told Louder Than War.




“The world doesn’t need to hear about the feels from two white dudes right now.  However, somewhere within that self-deprecating comment is what this video is about. Of all the songs on John’s album 4 that I personally connected with, it was “Air Conditioned Dork” that I connected with the most. For my entire life, I’ve been plagued by being my own worst critic, often to a point of complete creative and depressive paralyzation, where works are completely abandoned. I’m betting that inner conflict is more universal than just our sad asses?” director Warren Kommers said.
