had this around a few weeks, unfinished. created the outro this afternoon, so i can finally release it to the wild.
had an idea that i’d make the final album for a musician who killed himself. read more >
i threw together a simple video for “king con.” makes it easier to share in the age of trump.
the middle section is from betty boop’s “snow white” and features max fleischer’s creation, koko the clown. the dancing is cab calloway rotoscoped. seemed like it captured the 30s-ness of the bridge, as well as the haunted house-ness of the coming administration. yikes!!

planning to release the entire movie on may 2, and will start sharing it out after that. currently putting the finishing touches on a double-cd for which the movie is the accompaniment.
