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.
