In today’s musical landscape (and creative landscape in general), it’s much easier to self-produce/self-publish than it has ever been. You can record clean, glossy, studio quality stuff on a pretty modest budget. To me, this lowered barrier to entry (somewhat ironically) has romanticized lo-fi…
Talk about a great marriage of sound and vision. One of my favorite up and coming music acts is Los Angeles based musician, Princess Reason. He makes the kind of delicately disheveled lo-fi pop that you can lose yourself in. One of my favorites is the fragile heartbreaker, “We Are Splitting”, and it just got a stunning video adaptation courtesy of director, Saxon Richardson. Against a beautifully shot desolate backdrop, a haunted young man gives into his inner demons. It’s dark, heavy subject matter, but a wonderful accompaniment to a magnificent song.
