VIDEO PREMIERE: SAN MINOTAURO “ALTERYESSING”

San Minotauro is the endlessly developing project of one J. Bonigno, featured here last year before starting something new. After several worthy singles, Bonigno’s newest San Minotauro work is exploring a dreamier half-awake-half-asleep sound, emphasized in this video (by Telly Aristotle and Bonigno) that sees the Minotauros roaming downtown and Chinatown after hours. It’s that time of night when the people are gone but the lights stay on, which is a perfect complement to Minotauro’s neon-in-the-middle-of-nowhere music—something Bonigno accurately figures lands somewhere between Local Natives and Toro Y Moi. The full San Minotauro EP 2 was mastered by industry vet John Greenham (Luke Top, Kevin Morby and more) and features striking art by Marco Oggian, and comes out Fri. June 28—but you can get to “Alteryessing” on Spotify right now!
