Ramona Falls is the solo project of Menomena’s Brent Knopf and various New York and Portland collaborators. His debut Intuit is out 8/18 on Barsuk, but standout “I Say Fever” surfaced in this week’s Drop. We asked him a bit about the significance of saying the word “fever,” since each time he sings it in the track, it’s followed by a discordant musical moment: “That word was right for the song because it implies being bodily possessed by some kind of transforming experience, either for better or worse.” Read the rest of his thoughts on transformative experiences while you take a listen to the track.
This week’s ‘Gum Drop also came with a chance to win a Chrome Warsaw messenger pack and Champ cycling jacket.
One winner gets a Chrome Warsaw messenger pack and Champ cycling jacket. You’ll get to pick the jacket size and the bag color (black, grey, or brown).
You can get more info/specifications about the Warsaw bag at Chrome. The jacket comes in dark brown or petrol.
CONTEST ENDS 08/26/09 AT 12PM EST.
