NATHAN BRANNON “OBSOLETE” (LIVE CLIP)
Nathan Brannon self-identifies as a germaphobe, and as such, he’s extremely uncomfortable around portable outhouses, especially at night. In this bit Nathan gives us a window into his germ fueled anxieties, and explains just how far he would go to avoid another port-a-potty encounter. [ Additional Camera : Elijah Hassan]
RHEA BUTCHER “HAIRCUTS & FLIGHT ATTENDANTS” (LIVE CLIP)
The lead single from Rhea Butcher‘s debut album, ‘Butcher,’ entitled “Haircuts & Flight Attendants” gives the audience a small vignette into the daily life of Rhea — as she’s continually mis-gendered and questioned about her age due to her appearance. (Originally premiered on After Ellen)
CAMERON ESPOSITO “DISPOSABLE EYEPATCH” (LIVE CLIP)
In this bit from ‘Same Sex Symbol,’ Cameron Esposito walks us through one of the treatments she had for her lazy eye condition, and speaks to what it was like trying to make friends in grade school while wearing a skin toned eyepatch and a Davy Crockett hat.
RHEA BUTCHER “7/11 & LIGHTERS” (LIVE CLIP)
In this clip from ‘Butcher,’ Rhea Butcher recounts the time she was carded at a 7/11 when attempting to purchase a lighter. After being slightly flattered by the request, at the time, more sinister interpretations of the interaction were pondered later. (Originally premiered @ Bandcamp Daily)
HARI KONDABOLU ‘MAINSTREAM AMERICAN COMIC’ (TRAILER)
Hari Kondabolu decided to record his second album for Kill Rock Stars in Portland, Oregon against the advice and some gentle(?) ribbing from his old Seattle friends. ‘Mainstream American Comic’ was born over the course of two evenings and three shows at Mississippi Studios, and this clip was plucked off the cutting room floor to promote the album.
IAN KARMEL “HOT SAUCE & NAPKINS” (LIVE CLIP)
With shows like Portlandia, Chelsea Lately, and The Late Show With James Cordon on his resume, it should come as no surprise that Ian Karmel’s debut stand-up record on Kill Rock Stars is a side splitter. Taped in one evening at Mississippi Studios, ‘9.2 On Pitchfork’ riffs on drunken cravings and murderous rampages fueled by hunger and bewilderment at some people’s stupidity.
CAMERON ESPOSITO “GUACAMOLE” (LIVE CLIP)
In this piece from “Same Sex Symbol,” Cameron Esposito explains the virtues of living in a place with a diverse, and in some cases completely divergent, mode of thought. Call is a fresh take on tomato tomatoe / potato potatoe argument.
CAMERON ESPOSITO “WOMAN WHO DOESN’T SLEEP WITH MEN” (LIVE CLIP)
In this clip from Cameron Esposito’s ‘Same Sex Symbol,’ she recounts the time when an audience member decided to point out the obvious… that she doesn’t look like the type of woman who sleeps with men. The main question here being, was it the haircut or the vest that gave her away?
MILAGRES ‘VIOLENT LIGHT’ (TRAILER)
After securing the original layered files of the album art for Milagres’ ‘Violent Light,’ I was able to animate the component parts to the rhythm and dynamics of snippets from the three lead tracks.
