This Is Our Jam Premieres: Slim Twig, "Altered Ego" (Video)

slim-twig
Even in the era of Wikipedia, trying to track down all of Toronto-based art-pop artist Slim Twig’s projects is no easy task. Some of his work includes producing music for Dirty Beaches, acting in a film with Ellen Page, working with Owen Pallett, and collaborating with US Girls (his wife, Meghan Remy). He’s a modern-day Renaissance man, specializing in all forms of the experimental and avant-garde.
In keeping with his other projects, Slim Twig’s new video for “Altered Ego” is as wild and weird as you’d imagine. The clip is an eye-melting visual experience where the costumes of Renata Morales play as much a role as Slim Twig’s music. While the designer has done work with Arcade Fire, Zola Jesus, Grimes, and others, the flowing, impossible-to-describe outfits in “Altered Ego” may be some of her most arresting. The song, too, has its own warped logic, where spastic guitar-squalls coalesce into something resembling pop. If only our last trip to MoMA had been so entertaining.
