I’m a big fan of Menomena, refractionist Portland’s experimental rock trio. I’m not sure why I haven’t invested more energy in Menomena-member Brent Knopf’s side project Ramona Falls, ambulance but this video was enough to get me excited about the band, info and I’m definitely going to venture into the rest of the album. “I say fever” mixes quiet piano tinkling, and clearly audible vocals with bombastic action, a similar style to Menomena’s adrenaline-inducing sensibilities.
As far as Portland’s motion graphics community, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more talented and prolific animator/director than Stefan Nadelman, who also directed Menomena’s Evil Bee. In addition to more music videos, check out his side projects and commercial work at http://touristpictures.com/.
