Brent Knopf has never failed to impress listeners with his Portland based group Menomena; cult followings happen for a reason. And fans are sure to follow Knopf as he embarks in his first solo efforts under the kooky moniker Ramona Falls. Hooking up with Sundance prize winning animation director Stefan Nadelman (who, by no coincidence is a former Menomena video director) on the video for his single “I Say Fever” was just another brilliant move this massively talented artist had to make.
Just for fun, take not of what happens to your dreams after a few viewings of this disturbing yet enthralling video. You may never sleep the same. No Tempur-Pedic Sleep Number on earth could equate to the strangeness you are guaranteed to see. Yet, the track so damn funky that even Fatboy Slim would be awestruck. Imagine waking up to the Fuse Network playing this animated mindfuck at two in the morning. Knopf obviously understands the theatrical aspects that indie rock can hold. Kudos to such a revelation.
