When we posted Lazer Crystal’s gothy new-wave light show “Love Rhombus” I mentioned that live, the Chicago trio promised “a multi-colored, polyphonic surf of sound and vision, set to the ritual nocturnal vibrations of its arsenal.” In this video for the track we get a multi-colored after-hours journey into grainy VHS territory. If the live show’s anything like it, run don’t walk … Remember, the new album’s called MCMLXXX, aka 1980, and they nail it. Down to the silhouetted keyboardist.

For your Friday night:

MCMLXXX is out 5/4 via Thrill Jockey. They hit the road with Trans Am that day as well.

  2. This filled my eyes with joy and the Sisters of Mercy sample in the mix reminded me that i miss Lost boys.
