I’m a lot in love with this. The vid for “Man Overboard” has a really dreamy, surreal quality and a look that I wasn’t totally expecting. Populous has an easy, synth-shoegaze sound like one of my fave groups ever, The Postal Service (who, by the way, need to release another album – it’s been four years already…) and Stuart O’Keeffe’s animation is so unassuming it catches you almost off-guard. There’s something about the emotions of toys that cuts right to the quick. I think it’s the juxtaposition of their complex feelings with their seemingly uncomplicated, happy exteriours.
