Palmbomen II- Memories of Cindy Pt. 1
Much of this is standardfare Adult Swim-on-vaporwave style comedy, but it's amusing throughout and the music is well done. The central conceit though falls along Hauntology-lines in that it's a reimagining of a world where new age and shoegaze were culturally central, rather than fringe phenomena, and assimilated into all aspects of culture, not least of which being corporate capitalism. As a huge fan of Slowdive's Pygmalion though, I almost bust a gut when the "Crazy Falafel" commercial came on.
