Published May 30, 2013When Toronto electronic experimenter Jesse Matthews announced his recent self-titled album as JFM, he shared a couple of abstract, VHS-looking videos to go along with it. Now he's unveiled another with "How Many Hearts Do You Hold."
The curious track sports a tightly wound beat clipping and clopping while an Eastern-sounding vocal sample, woozy pitch-shifted moans and noisy ambience flicker chaotically. The accompanying video is appropriately bizarre, as we're treated to an extended slo-mo shot of a black-clad woman showing off her pentagram necklace. The VHS tape appears to break down towards the end and the image cuts off.
