Another taste from Peaches’ new album has arrived in the form of a funny video for the single “Close Up” The clip stars Peaches as a wrestler under the tutelage of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, who coaches the electro-punk rapper through several rounds of a Lucha Libre-meets-glam-rock-meets-drag fight. Punchy drums ricochet around low-slung bass notes and Peaches’ bedroom talk as a man smears what appears to be a comic representation of poop across her upper lip. Divine kept it real.

The track comes out with the rest of the Rub LP on September 25. While you wait, flash back to the star’s early days in Berlin’s electroclash scene here and watch her DJ in an extravagant boob-covered outfit at a 2011 Electronic Beats Festival here.
