VIDEO PREMIERE: PACHYMAN “SENSI”
Pachy Garcia is the singer and drummer for L.A. synthpunk annihilators Prettiest Eyes, so he’s already intensely adept at doing two difficult things at once. But he took that capability for disciplinary ambidexterity to another level of intensity when he revealed himself as Pachyman, a reverent disciple of classic dub and reggae whose debut In Dub was a sleeper winner in 2019. He returns now with At 333 House, a salute to his own personal Studio One due out Feb. 7 on Mock, and this video valentine to summer days spent soaking in sun and sound. “Sensi” is a fine dubby instrumental, the exact sort of thing generally found heating up a 45 B-side—but here it’s practically floating on the breeze, literalized in the little puffs of magic that take this video by Pachyman and Jaime Villa Ruiz (a.k.a. Cocus) from miniature documentary to miniature dream. Live shows for Pachyman coming soon and At 333 House is up for pre-order here.
