So there is a fluttering ghost with an expression like a Mexican wrestling mask, and everything is pink or orange, and there's a cloud with kind of a face in it, and morphing demon-like running figures, and a perpetual (seeming) left turn in a car, and green pills coming out of something's head, and more running, and a bosomy pony-tailed lady that seems to — aw, wait, shit
, we give up. These attempts are inadequate. You'll just have to trust us when we say that this Anibal Bley-directed video for Melted Toys
' "Always" does a little cerebellum-liquifying of its own. It may even bring you to a new appreciation for the sort of lush, clipped minimalism Melted Toys are trying for — and succeeding at — here, in a song from the San Francisco band's debut full-length. (It's out on Underwater Peoples
now.) Both the song and the video are worth sacrificing a few (million?) braincells on a melty-ass summer Friday.
