When we first heard former Books member Zammuto’s new single, “Great Equator,” it came with a fascinating clip showing how he created glitchy beats directly via damaging and recording vinyl records. In the new video for that song, we see a bit of that once again, as the camera zooms in to get microscopic views of different objects like pennies, computer chips, and tiny record grooves that are blown up to the size of canyons. Not really sure why, when it gets to the hook, it cuts to images of different animals, but that’s not an important question when the hook is as catchy and strange as this. -- Stereogum
