Naomi Yang's new video for Lee Ranaldo (ex Sonic Youth)
Naomi's latest work in her other career as a film-maker is a lovely video for Lee Ranaldo.
I've described ‘New Thing’ as ‘my song about the Internet’ — about our thousands of ‘friends’ and the obsession with accumulating ‘likes.’ When Naomi and I began discussing ideas for the video we knew we wanted to reference that subject matter but didn't want to do so in any heavy-handed way. I told her I'd like to be a character of some sort rather than ‘guy singing with guitar’ and she found ‘Buster,’ as we dubbed the JVC 3100R ‘Television/Radio Pyramid Capsule Unit’ on eBay. You wouldn't believe what a cool old useless piece of outdated technology like that sells for these days!
