Celluloid Bachelor #7: Ramona Falls "Fever"

Woah. This video makes me sound like Joey Lawrence, but so what. How amazing!

And, of course, it doesn't hurt that the music it is meant to visually represent comes from one of the most brilliant indie rock composers of our day, Brent Knopf, and his "solo+" work as Ramona Falls. I've been enamored with Knopf's work as part of the band Menomena for quite some time, and was even more blown away by his solo record this year. He played a live show in Cleveland this summer which was quite good (though still proved how difficult, if not impossible, it will be for any stripped down live performance of the staggeringly complex Intuit record to be an adequate composite), before which I did one of my more enjoyable and well-received CB Q/As.

If you've come to this blog since all that, you may be unaware of my serious respect for this artist and album. So, to bring yourself up to speed, check out the video below.
