Video Premiere: Raleigh Moncrief "Cast Out for Days"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Sacramento's Raleigh Moncrief doesn't exactly have the typical XLR8R resume. He's collaborated with drumming virtuoso Zach Hill, performs in Marnie Stern's touring band, and worked as an engineer and co-producer on Dirty Projectors' Bitte Orca album. This week, Moncrief released his own debut full-length, Watered Lawn, via the Anticon label, and although "Cast Out for Days" does have some indie-ish leanings that recall the psychedelic stylings of groups like Animal Collective, its warbly low end and woozy synths unexpectedly caught our ear. The video for "Cast Out for Days" was directed by Moncrief himself, and features a mish-mash of trippy, kaleidoscopic images, including a few peeks at the artist, if you look closely enough.
