Since moving on from Mika Miko, the band’s former drummer Kate Hall has packed up her drum kit and has instead picked up a video camera. The musician turned artist has made music videos for bands like Erase Errata and Abe Vigoda, and now she has added Deerhoof to her portfolio; directing the video for the band’s latest single “Numina” off of 2008′s Offend Maggie.
We have to say the video is very good, but if you suffer from motion sickness, you might want to think twice before you watch the almost four-minute long video. It’s aesthetically pleasing, with interesting visual effects thrown into the mix, but the shaky home-video-like, hand-held recording, with the upside down footage hopping around, could cause a slight headache. With that warning in place, the video and the track do work well together; encompassing a calm California vibe, yet giving us the strange urge to hang upside down waving our arms around.
Along with making music videos, Hall dabbles in printmaking, painting and photography, and even painted a mural at the LA venue,
