Bobby posted the great new video to Ice Cream by Battles (here) and it reminded me of how great El Guincho’s video for Bombay was. Released about 8 months ago and directed by Nicolás Mendez, Bombay is probably best seen as a companion piece to Ice Cream as both video’s are produced by CANADA and share many visual similarities (chiefly: fast cuts and topless women).

Bombay is really a terrific track, with plenty of steel drum and tropical psychedelia and this video is definitely one of my favorite music videos ever. I had read at one point that the video was just an extended trailer for a film that Nicolás Mendez had been working on with El Guincho and there is even a website for it here, but that’s about all I know. Definitely check out the video, it so much fun and has so many great ideas crammed into it. A quick warning though, it does feature a fair few topless women, but if you’re like me then that shouldn’t be a problem at all. Enjoy.
