That up there [^], is not Wise Blood.
"Wise Blood" is Chris Laufman of Pittsburg. Not much is known about him, and there are no actual pictures out there.. No Press Kit.
I do know that he makes really chill, sampled, "R&B"-esque music. Like this:
"B.I.G. E.G.O.," from the `+` EP.
Get it from the Wise Blood Bandcamp page:
Keep an eye on this dude.. BIG THINGS!
BONUS: I read a Pitchfork Profile/Interview that compared Wise Blood's sampling style to that of Girl Talk's...
So, here's a "new" Girl Talk "video."
Compare & Contrast.. GO!

Oscar McClure's "Leaves"
It's from his new-ish album, "Compost."
Straight from the record label:
"Oscar McClure’s ‘Compost’ is organic experimental hip hop grown with bodily sounds, everyday objects, field recordings and an SP-303. Through his use of extended techniques and chance procedures, McClure associates various musical and non-musical materials to form a sonic ecosystem. Both noisy and meditative, this collection of atmospheric textures and phasing beats cultivates the boundaries shared between contemporary improvised music and hip hop."

Alright, well, for starters, Dirty Projectors ROCK!
Their music is very experimental (not that kind of annoying "Experimental").. But it has all of these great Pop sensibilities tediously scattered throughout.
It seems like the line-up of the band changes somewhat frequently. The mastermind/leader of the Projectors is Dave Longstreth (he can be likened to indie rock's "Trent Reznor"). The other current band members are Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, Haley Dekle (<3), Brian Mcomber, and Nat Baldwin.
Enough talk.. Here's some cool music!:
The mind-blowingly melodic Björk collabo.
"Bitte Orca"'s equally awesome lead single.
A Black Flag cover. (Check out the "Rise Above" LP)
"Bitte Orca" Track #1.
