Zigzagging vocal threads trace wild, whimsical patterns that live at the intersection of joyful and chaotic. “Cardinal” is blink-and-you-might-miss-it quick – the cadence, the arpeggiations, the dancing percussion, and the lyrical repetitions all veering into 100 unimaginable directions. Cascading melodies are gilded in frenetic glee, timbres bright and bouncy like a collection of magical creatures chattering away beneath a metallic sky. Mike Adame’s video echoes these movements and aural layers through its visual collages. I want to keep taking this trip over and over.
