Watch Fractured Animation in Xiu Xiu’s “Botanica de Los Angeles” Video
Fans of Xiu Xiu‘s (aka Jamie Stewart plus interchangeable women) well-established brand of tortured, noisy experimentation will be happy to see the video for “Botanica de Los Angeles” fits comfortably into their corpus. The viewer is “treated” to a collaged protagonist who appears to be coming mentally undone almost as fast as the world around them is physically, the tension helped along by Florent Texier’s permanently unstable animation style. For more Jamie Stewart fun, take your pick between vibrator tweets and supporting prisoners. For more Florent Texier fun, take your pick–just kidding, visit his website.
