Ramona Falls

I realized I've never posted anything about music.

The time has come!

Ramona Falls is great stuff. The "band" is a side project of Brent Knopf, one of three members of the band Menomena. I call Ramona Falls a "band" because it's kind of only Brent Knopf, but also kind of a whole lot of other people he collaborated with. If you click on the "credits" tab on the Ramona Falls website, you will find more names of collaborators than you care to read through. Word on the street is that Knopf started the side project while Menomena's third album's release date was delayed. I have to say, I like Ramona Falls better. I'm not sure what it is. Menomena feels a little more rough around the edges, I suppose. I've listened through Ramona Falls' entire first (and only, at this point) album several times now, and I have yet to grow tired of it.

Here's a couple music videos for your enjoyment.


  1. What was the name of that band, or maybe it was just a girl singing, that one time when I was over at your apartment, and we were listening to her on the computer. . . It started with a Q and one of her songs talked about jeans/genes. I really want to remember!

  2. Watching that second video reminded me of the video for the Menomena song evil be...ever watch it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8eksPdM9e0

  3. Kelly- It was Quadron. I think I'll do a post on them!

    Spencer- I've seen the video for Evil Bee and I'm 99% sure it's the same director. I do think that "I Say Fever" was his stroke of genius though.
