Folks who stopped by Toronto's Zine Dream last week will remember seeing local artist Jesi The Elder near the entrance slinging her comics and hand-painted shirts, almost too nice to wear. But you don't have to worry about spilling curry all over her animated video for Toronto psych trio Absolutely Free's excellent new single "Beneath The Air." The 3500 individually painted frames (previously seen at an exhibit at Videofag) are stitched together into one gorgeous and psychedelic cycle of characters, like you're on the soaring journey of The Snowman's "Walking In The Air" sequence while having your face smooshed into the Screamadelica and Yes Please! covers. Yes, please.

Absolutely's Free's self-titled debut is out October 14 via Arts & Crafts. Toronto can buy Jesi's shirts at Sonic Boom.
