Shmu "&hearts"

Shmu '&hearts'
Austin-based musician Sam Chown generally keeps himself busy singing and drumming in the duo Zorch, but the multi-instrumentalist will go it alone as Shmu on his upcoming solo debut Discipline/Communication. While Grand Theft Zamboni won't drop the disc until June 5, you can get a sneak peek via the newly unveiled "&hearts."

The piece plays choppily, with glitch-styled production stitching together drum beats, acoustic guitar and cut-up vocal patterns into a neon tapestry of sound. You can check out the psychedelic pop freakout down below in the similarly chopped-up video, which brings together old anime clips, grainy ages-old dance show segments, and rainbow-coloured TV fuzz.
