This video for ‘Thin Moon’, from James Pants’ album Seven Seals, brilliantly captures the lo-tech weirdness you’d see on Public Access TV back in the ‘80s. I’d say it’s just about perfect. One of my favorite videos of 2010.
Seven Seals is available here. At times sounding like a mashup of Joy Division, Boney M, The Flying Lizards and Passenger-era Iggy, Pants conjures up intergalactic road trip music and electronic soul for the lounges of Venus. Neo-neo-spaceage bachelor pad music.
