In a continuing effort to toot my own horn, here is a repost of my band’s debut video for our song “Eyes Of Grape” from our debut release, Psychic Toothpaste/Ocean Ghost 7″ from KillerPOP Records. It is directed, filmed, edited and everything else by me, so double toot. A new video for the song “The Belles Of London” off the same album is being worked on right now by my film collective, Dead Serials.

Everyone knows that I’m a prolific music video director for independent bands, but occasionally I like to take songs I love aurally and provide them with visual accompaniment. In the case of “Water Curses” by Animal Collective, I wasn’t aware that they had a video for the song. I made my own that I think matches the tones of the song and incorporates footage of infamous The Diamond Boys in action. I then saw the actual video and it’s sort of boring. Mine isn’t. Enjoy.
After years of writing, making music, and taking photos, I have finally delved into the world of cinema in the past year. The majority of that work has been making music videos for various independent musicians and even making a few fan-videos for songs I love and want a visual component added to them. I’ve recently started uploading these videos to YouTube in order to spread them like a plague.
I created the above video about 6 months ago for MiLK jr. and his song “Animalistic” off the forthcoming album from Sexdad Records, I Had Another Dream. The song has an eerie and jarring quality to it, blending the operatic with the primal. The video mixes scenes of caged-wildlife, spontaneous and calculated street-performance, and strobing strange loops. Be wary of your mental state whilst you ingest this.
This video has been up for some time, but I felt it was fitting to post it along with the previous entry. Another artist from the Sexdad Records catalog, Florida-based musician All Father had me craft this piece for his song “Tip & A Bow” from his unreleased album Wisdom & War. The shifting colors and juxtaposing scenes of music, physicality, and destruction complement what has been described as “the aural version of a bad trip.”
Stay tuned to my YouTube channel as I’ll be uploading many more videos over the coming weeks.
