You walk up to the arcade prize counter with a handful of flopping strands of red paper tickets. You have to choose: Do you want the happy face lamp? Yeah, but you can get two yo-yos, a Chinese fingertrap, five peace sign erasers, eight tootsie rolls, and a parachute man for the same amount!
That’s the memory I recall when I watch this new video for “Stasis,” a new track from Montreal producer WINDOW. A happy face and a yin-yang sign join together for a terrifying acid trip; we watch them slowly melt on an abandoned plane somewhere in the depths of cyber space. Trippy breakbeats and bright syncopated rhythms accompany the hallucinations.
