At one point in Oakland producer Shortcircles' new video, which stars him and his temporary backing band of James & Evander (Glenn Jackson and Adam Myatt) on a trip to LA, Glenn flies down a children's slide, mouth and blue button-up agape, and high fives everyone. Then it cuts to them eating tacos. There's so much laughing in this video it makes me sick. They play frisbee, goddammit. But you know what, they can do whatever they want so long as this bleepy, beautiful song is playing in the background. Shortcircles' Between Waves LP is out now via Plug Research.
