The Bay Area lo-fi pop group Sonny & The Sunsets announced today that they’ll follow up last year’s Antenna To The Afterworld album with a new one called Talent Night At The Ashram, set to arrive early next year. Restless frontman Sonny Smith originally envisioned the album as a movie made up of a bunch of song-length short films. But the scripts turned into songs, and the movie became an album. First single “Cheap Extensions,” is a mumbling, shambling tune. Its new video, scrappily animated through underground-comics graphics, tells the story of a man who falls for a girl with multicolored hair extensions and then fights to get those extensions back when thieves steal them. Teppei Ando animated the video, and you can watch it below.
Talent Night At The Ashram is out 2/17 on Polyvinyl.
