New Stereolab Video – “Neon Beanbag”

Following the lead of the similarly psychedelic “Three Women” clip, the Julian House-directed video for “Neon Beanbag” initially looks like the song’s title suggests before moving into a muted collagist landscape of faded ’50s (and beyond) pop imagery and ubiquitous thought/action bubbles that also act as tear drops, beanbags, and straight-up graphic design. It’s the opener from Chemical Chords, Stereolab’s new previously mentioned first proper album in four years, from which we’ve also seen them do a live “Valley Hi!.”

The song’s streaming without images at MySpace.

Chemical Chords is out now in the UK on Duophonic UHF Disks and in the US on 4AD.
