David Knight - 18th Dec 2008

After their beautifully glacial version of Groundhog Day for Dimmer's Degrees Of Existence, New Zealand directing team Special Problems' latest is a multi-media maelstrom for Modular's Tame Impala - a band clearly fond of Sixties garage-psychedelia.

And why the hell not We've seen this kind of melting pot of animation styles before but SP do it very well - and it certainly works for a band who've possibly taken the odd hit from the bong.

The talented Kiwi team - that's Cam, Joel and Darron - are promising to arrive on London's jewel-encrusted streets early in '09. We are looking forward.
