Sonny & the Sunsets
. The dreamy indie psych-folkers announced Talent Night at the Ashram
today, a new LP they'll release Feb. 17 on Polyvinyl, with the NPR debut
of this wonderfully weird animated video for its first, jangly, bass-driven single, "Cheap Extensions."
Created by Oakand artist Teppei Ando
, the video follows a man as he wanders a supermarket's aisles before becoming entranced by a woman with colorful hair extensions; following her leads our protagonist through a surreal urban landscape that includes, among other things, aliens and a bear, each of whom becomes similarly possessed by the extensions' magical powers.
Check it out below. The band's only Bay Area date on the books at the moment is Nov. 25 at the exclusive rich people playground that is The Battery
, but we're guessing the first couple months of the year will bring them to some local venues us little people can patronize, too. We'll keep you posted.
Nothing to take the edge off a Monday like the announcement of a new record from S.F. dreamboats
