Video Clip of The Week: Sonny & The Sunsets, “Cheap Extensions”



Sonny & The Sunsets’ Talent Night at the Ashram, the album from which the above clip, the mesmerizing, “Cheap Extensions” was culled, has a fascinating back story. To give you the Reader’s Digest Condensed version of that story, the record began as a film project in which each song was originally a short film that, when strung together, formed a feature-length movie. I enjoy the late night, Adult Swim vibe of the rough animation and also got hooked pretty quickly on this very fun tune that sounds like Tame Impala, only on slightly more effective drugs. The band’s press release claims that, “Talent Night at the Ashram is cinematic in its storytelling and kaleidoscopic in its mixing and merging of musical genres.” Sounds good to me.

Talent Night at the Ashram will be released on Polyvinyl Records on February 17th, 2015 on CD/LP/Cassette/ Digital. Vinyl will be 180 gram limited edition of 500 exclusive to the Polyvinyl webstore on light blue. There will also be an unlimited version on red vinyl. Preorder the format of your choice at This Link. Enjoy!
