Tesla Boy “Dream Machine” [♬]

Tesla Boy’s highly anticipated second album ‘The Universe Made Of Darkness‘ was released last year, but the music video for track 1, “Dream Machine” was released only yesterday — A young, wide-eyed explorer wanders an abandoned landscape riddled with inexplicable anomalies:

To me, this music video is definitely channeling a few touchstone pieces of work. It reminds me of Andrei Tarkovsky‘s 1979 film, STALKER. “Dream Machine” could also be seen as a modern take on the short science fiction novel ‘Roadside Picnic‘ written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky in 1971. ‘Roadside Picnic‘ takes place during the aftermath of an extraterrestrial event called the Visitation. Each of the six Visitation Zones exhibit strange and dangerous phenomena not understood by humans, and contain artifacts with inexplicable, seemingly supernatural properties. Coincidence? I for one hope not. Either way, this is a great music video — Album available on iTunes:
