Hypnotic animation complements Papa M's acoustic "DLVD"

Director Arturo Bastón took the dance scene from the 1960 film Seishun zankoku monogatari by Nagisa Ôshima and repurposed it for this lovely animated sequence for "DVLD."

Via Drag City:

Take "DLVD", which is nestled with sweet frailty in the center of the album. Papa M has the ability to take a microcosmic moment in time and expand it to the size of the universal. "DLVD" is raw and austere; just a man and his guitar. Poignant and clear, it's the sounds you hear when the sky breaks with shards of sun after a rainstorm. This warm, tender embrace of absolute purity is reflected in visuals created by Arturo Bastón in the music video for "DLVD". Bastón's fragmented fever dream of sincere love and affection showcases Papa M at his most candid.

The single is from Highway Songs, which is a very diverse album, much of which is a lot more intense than this beautiful track.
