Mouse on Mars: "Polaroyced"

Whatever money is being lost in the music industry certainly doesn't appear to be getting spent on music video budgets.

Mouse on Mars return after a six year hiatus with Parastrophics, their first album for fellow German Modeselektor's Monkeytown imprint (February 28). In terms of the video itself you don't get much more lo-concept than this: basically just a guy in a lucha libre wrestling mask breakdancing in various alleyways. The actual music is a bit more sophisticated, a chattering chiptune rhythm line underscoring squelchy, knob tweaking synth lines. Somehow it manages to be almost poppy in spite of itself. Welcome back, meine Freunde.
