Sacramento-based recording artist Raleigh Moncrief has gotten some buzz these days, for engineering and co-producing Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca and supplying backing axe for Marnie Stern — and, of course, his own playful and well-received solo efforts.
The video below, directed by Miko Riverza, is “Don’t Shoot”, the latest from Moncrief’s Watered Lawn LP released last October on Anticon. Watered Lawn is anything but watered down. The tracks are layered, lush, and expansive with folksy art-rock vocals atop a beats-and-loops-based collage of sounds, both live instrumental and digital. It’s the perfect soundtrack to anyone’s 80s movie and video game-inspired dreams.
Moncrief will be performing at The Bay Bridged’s free Noise Pop Happy Hour on Friday, February 24th.
