Mndsgn Takes Us Thrift Shopping In The Clip For "Camelblues"

Mndsgn- "Camelblues" [Official Video]

Mndsgn comes through with another patently perplexing visual for his latest single "Camelblues" off his Stones Throw debut Yawn Zen LP. The track features a rare vocal performance from the enigmatic frequency freaker over swampy key touches and a nautical click, stripped virtually bare of any percussion in a sensual treatment that's perfect for those "night is the right time" moments. It even dips into a tender, repackaged take on J Dilla's "Fall In Love" to cap it off. The clip follows Ancheta as he makes his way through a thrift, scooping synths like 5 dollar button-downs off the hanger.

Yawn Zen has been a proper addition to the Blessed Coast camp's catalogue, perfectly synthesizing their modern-funk sentiments with his own prolific output of spacey productions. One listen to the revamped Rah Band cut "Messages From The Stars" as his chopped up and slightly slurred "TXT (MSGS)" groove should prove that in spades (peep the Tron-ish set of visuals on the track for some added eye candy.) Despite its name, the album should not be slept and can be purchased via iTunes today. You can catch Mndsgn wooing and crooning from the thrift shop floor in the clip for "Camelblues" below.
