Published Jun 10, 2016Today is release day for Japanese music hero Cornelius, who is celebrating the arrival of the deluxe, expanded reissue of his groundbreaking 1997 album Fantasma. If you're still on the fence about picking up the double-LP offering, a few more newly shared A/V treats from the reissue have surfaced to help sway you.
Down below, you can check out a newly unearthed video for Fantasma's classic opener "Mic Check," complete with psych-as-fuck visuals, '70s animation and retro film footage. Also, at the bottom of the page, you can dive into a stream of the synth-slathered and funked-up bonus track "Taylor," which is included on the reissue.
As previously announced, Cornelius will be further celebrating Fantasma with a series of U.S. dates, which you can check out below.
