ANTI-‘S lovely baroque-pop song sculptor Andy Shauf has just released the video for “Clove Cigarette”, one of the standout tracks from January’s The Neon Skyline.
Watch with us; it’s 184 seconds of Proustian recall set across gorgeous acoustic melodies, with a brilliant, digitally treated video courtesy Colin Medley and Jared Raab, with added animated spice from Luca Tarantini.
Aww, he’s actually adorable – which, if you’ve seen him at one of his rare appearances this side of the Pond, you’ll be able to testify to.
Andy says: “The video was made using a variety of cutting edge technologies: LiDAR, a 3D scanning technique using laser light that’s often used for 3D maps and self-driving cars, photogrammetry, and a video game engine. We hope you like it.”
He’s also announced another charity benefit live stream show for Sunday, October 18th, at 10pm British Summer Time; tickets for which are now on sale at Noonchorus.
The sum of $5 from each ticket sale will go to the Encampment Support Network, a group of artist who are addressing Toronto’s housing crisis by bringing humanitarian aid to those living in encampments around the city.
Andy says: “Monies will be used to purchase bottled water, sleeping bags, grocery gift cards, tents and other essential items for those in need.
“There are a lot of people in our city who need our help and support right now, and winter is approaching quickly.
Andy Shauf’s The Neon Skyline is available now from ANTI- on digital download, CD and vinyl. You can buy a copy over at his Bandcamp page (and his excellent back catalogue as well.)
