Canadian singer-songwriter Michael Rault has a knack for cooking up vintage rock grooves. But his true weirdness has now revealed itself in the video for “Still Not Sad,” in which the mustached Rault traipses around a dim parking garage in all his glitzy junkyard glory. There’s a trashed van and a crushed cigarette, but the unflappable Rault is still grinning. The black-and-white footage belies the song’s radiant psych touches, which cozy up to Tame Impala territory in the final stretch. It’s a succinct statement of Rault’s playful, promising melodicism. Watch it below.
