video: Tooth Ache "Skin"

B-ton


Synth-pop's roots coincided with the rise of the VHS format, along with the pre-auto tracking analog glitches suffered by many an overplayed tape. This subtly warped video meshes perfectly with tooth ache's "Skin", their mutually detuned quality elevating the degradation of William Basinski's Disintegration Loops to modern pop practices (video, mp3, 7"). Maybe it's the drum machine, or the decay'd glam of a hypothetical video shoot at the Church Street Marketplace, but "Skin" is a sci-pop joyride.
