In case you haven't noticed, Pitchfork is in the midst of a heated love affair with Pictureplane. We couldn't be more stoked to see Mr. Pictureplane himself, Travis Egedy, getting his due. With the new album, Dark Rift, dropping yesterday on the Lovepump United imprint, it looks like the crush is spreading to other sites. After being listed as a band to watch on Stereogum in mid-July, that site wrote up Pictureplane again earlier this week, calling Rift brilliant as it premiered "Cyclical Cyclical (Atlantis)," a track from the new record. Check out the new video for "Trance Doll" after the jump, and then catch Pictureplane tomorrow night at the Meadowlark with Iuengliss, Josephine and the Mousepeople and Hollogramz.
