Song of the Day: Bonobo “Cirrus”

Reliably groovy and melodic

Downtempo guru and longtime Ninja Tune recording artist Simon Green—aka Bonobo—has just released “Cirrus,” the first single off his new full-length album, The North Borders (available April 1st from Ninja Tune). Reliably groovy and melodic, with beats tempered by a mellow edge, “Cirrus” is accompanied by a gorgeously trippy video, where commercial archival footage of a bright and cheerful 1950s America is time-stretched and duplicated into fantastical clockwork shapes. Mad Men meets M.C. Escher.

Bonobo launches an extensive North American tour at The Black Cat here in DC on April 10th. More info over at Bonobo Music.
