Video: Sam Prekop "The Silhouettes"

We're still a bit flabbergasted by the latest solo record from The Sea & Cake frontman Sam Prekop. Instead of the veteran post-rocker's usual mellowed-out guitar and vocal pairings, Prekop's Old Punch Card is actually an instrumental foray into vintage modular synthesizers and the warm, bubbling sounds they can so beautifully make. Well, to one such track from that record, this lovely animation was added by Adult Swim/Nickelodeon animator Jordan Kim. A glowing, light-bulb-esque creature floats above an emerald world, eating all the globes of light it can find, while Prekop's fuzzy synth melodies warble throughout the piece. As two dark creatures from the strange landscape follow the 'alien' around, we see what eventually happens to the being's fodder—and what a sight it is.
