Wax Tailor (feat. Aloe Blacc) – “Time to Go” (video) (PopMatters Premiere)

French downtempo/trip-hop producer Wax Tailor (Jean-Christophe Le Saoût) returns this month with his fourth album Dusty Rainbow From the Dark, a 22-track affair conceived of as a concept album inspired by how children look at the world. Le Saoût has brought in a large cast to bring his dreamworld to life, including Aloe Blacc who features on this video for the very soulful “Time to Go”. Other featured guests include Shana Halligan (Bitter:Sweet), Elzhi, Jennifer Charles (Dan the Automator’s Lovage project), Charlotte Savary, Mattic, and more.

The tour accompanying this release is a major theatrical venture with more than 20 directors contributing to bringing the musical concepts to life. These dates include many major U.S. markets (full list below the jump).
