Video: Wax Tailor x Aloe Blacc - "Time To Go"

Still from Wax Tailor's animated video for "Time To Go" f/ Aloe Blacc

Can’t say I know much about French artist Wax Tailor but based on this darkly funky Aloe Blacc collaboration “Time  To Go” I am down to investigate. The brilliant video illustrates the existentialist soul of the lyric through the mystical back-alley journey of a blue, four-armed sock-puppet cephalopod. Following our hero (technically, a quadropus, I guess?) as he is born, makes things dance and turn blue and then returns to the dumpster from whence he came, the weird mix of rhythm & blues, graffiti and craft-fair animation plays like a Michel Gondry film in miniature. It’s all very mysterious, which means I’m just going to have to listen to a whole lot more Wax Tailor until I figure out exactly what’s going on. Watch below and conduct your own investigation by copping Wax Tailor’s new LP Dusty Rainbow From The Dark on iTunes now.
