This video is made to take viewers into the recording of our band’s album Neener 2. Jessica and I discuss instruments, styles and process as the movie intersperses interview sessions with musical clips from the album over footage of sights around Cleveland from industrial blocks to rail bridges to police lights to Lake Erie.
We cap off season 4 with a podcast that starts with Jessica and me, along with ducks, in a couple parks in Columbus; then we check in on parakeets Belle and Sparty as they perch on their repurposed CD rack and tweet; as the video moves on we see Jessica walking around Central Park with Les, and then we see some denizens of New York either ignoring the camera–or reacting to it. Also stars a messy dog and some bold pigeons.
(Watch the preview video for this podcast).
Jessica and I go out in Lakewood, the music about moonshine plays, and the dancing begins! Belle and Sparty the parakeets fly around the house. Then we take a trip across the river to the Coventry area of the east side, after seeing massed seagulls in a steel lands rail yard. And before we’re done, we stop by the Tremont Farmer’s Market ‘Treemart’ in Cleveland’s Lincoln Park.
The video opens with a brief discussion of geese and Ava the parakeet. Then a trip from Lakewood through a wintry Cleveland continues: from a lady looking for a party in Gordon Square to Jessica walking in the snow in Rocky River to a freezing festival on Columbus Street to a drive through snowed-out neighborhoods on the east side.
