Video Premier: Jacober - Steps

Mark Charles Brown's video for Jacober is a great fit, inaugurating Dave Jacober's solo identity away from the Dan Deacon Ensemble, for whom he does beats and percussion, and his regular mainline in Dope Body, in a swirling bedlam of melting pastels and exotic sea life of the living room tank variety. The slow churn and complexity of Brown's visualization seems to match Jacober's colorful poptronica and even suits his understated delivery, though all good things come to an end and eventually the maelstrom melts over him in a consuming pink tide first, then allowing an upside down gathering of jellyfish to shift into gear. "Steps" is taken from his upcoming debut album Water Karaoke, coming out this Wednesday on Friends Records - it will be available as a pay-what-you-want download and on limited edition cassette.
