Youth Lagoon’s newest video for “Rotten Human” is premiering over at Pitchfork. Check out the full article here.

“when i stumbled onto pat blades’ work, what instantly struck me about it was that he’s a complete visual artist. his background is based around vfx + characters, & every work he’s created in the past looks as though each was made by a different person. there’s nothing i respect more than artistic chameleons, because that’s what art should be. a singular expression every time. never believing in a formula. when we started chatting & i sent him the track, i made a pact with myself that i wouldn’t guide the concept whatsoever. i wanted this to be a true collaboration. i provide the music, & he creates whatever the hell he wants to…& he came back with this.” – Trevor
