Special Feature :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Visits The ‘Back To The Feature’ Podcast

Friends and fans of Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice are likely aware that film is just as important to me as music.  Recently, after weeks of behind the scenes work from the homie Conwaythewhale, I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Justin and Edward of the Back to the Feature podcast, where the duo generally reviews film, talks topics and interviews Texas-based movers and shakers.  Over the course of about an hour and a half, we talk about my short films, some of the upcoming projects I have taken part in, my collaborative efforts with Jeffrey Garcia, my recent top films of 2020 list from the DOOMonFILM blog and much more, and in all honesty, it felt like we could’ve kept going on and on.  If you’re a fan of film and have some time to spare, I highly recommend giving this one a spin on Spotify, or wherever you stream your podcasts!

Funny Games :: DC4PREZ Drops Video For ‘KEY & PEELE’

Alternative hip-hop artists in the central Texas area that are smart seem to be hitting up the homie Jeffrey Garcia for music videos, and the results have been nothing but gold.  The latest collaborator, DC4PREZ, recently dropped his video for KEY & PEELE, and the duo cooked up a colorful video full of life and slacker irreverence.  The track is ridiculously catchy, bouncy and radiating vibes, so having a visually stark companion-piece for it does nothing but enhance the enjoyment and experience.  Dig the video, give it a like, leave a comment, and spread it around so that the numbers get run up!

Absurdist Swag :: Kenny Casanova Strikes Again With ‘BP Oil Spill’

If (or more likely, when) Kenny Casanova blows up, I wouldn’t be surprised if he continues to collaborate with Jeffrey Garcia on his music videos, because these crazy little masterpieces work extremely well for the vibe that Kenny Casanova has created and embraced.  His offbeat and unique approach to modern day hip-hop has found a perfect visual match with the random hilarity of Jeffrey Garcia, which makes BP Oil Spill one of many collaborative videos from the duo that jump out of the crowd of normal music video tropes.  You’ve probably already hit this one with a like and a comment, maybe even already shared it, but do all of those things immediately if you’ve not already done so, and don’t sleep, because if I was a betting man, I’d bet more of these wild creations are on the way.

Spaced Out :: Kenny Casanova And Jeffrey Garcia Strike Gold With ‘Who Is Uuu’

Kenny Casanova and Jeffrey Garcia are certainly not strangers when it comes to collaboration.  Garcia is responsible for a large handful of the first wave of PNTHN music videos, and breakout member Kenny Casanova has always been on a different wavelength than most rappers, Texas-based or otherwise.  Their latest collaboration, the beautifully insane Who Is Uuu, is a celebration of all things the duo has established as earmarks to their styles : a funky track, off-kilter and chameleon-like rhymes, a bright color palatte, and a wildly structured narrative full of homage to entertainment from years past.  There’s not much to dislike about this video, if anything at all, so go ahead and check it out, leave a like and a comment, and spread it around so it can go properly viral.

Joyful Noise :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Audio-Visual For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’

It feels good starting off 2020 on the right foot.  After a collaborative year with K Death of the iconic duo Moodie Black (a year in which she produced projects for several underground Texas juggernauts), I am happy to announce the release of Panic Ruminations on January 24.  In order to properly support the roll-out, I hooked up with the homie Jeffrey Garcia from the Dream-Atomic camp, and he helped me capture footage for the limit is mythic, the lead single from the upcoming project.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, share it around so we can get those view counts up, and stay tuned for the release of the full project.

Big Talk :: Jeffrey Garcia Talks ‘Radio Candy’ On The Atomic Radio Hour

I love seeing my man Jeffrey Garcia doing big things, because his vision is unmatched, and his motivation to create these visions is unflappable.  Recently, he dropped by the Atomic Radio Hour to speak on Radio Candy, his other films, and the other things that influence his creative process.  Over the course of the hour-plus long chat, we get some insight into both the host and the filmmaker, so definitely give it a listen, a share and a comment!

Mind Melt :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice + Lo Phi Call On Jeffrey Garcia For ‘Crying Freeman’ Video

After a couple of low key releases the past couple of years, it’s nice to be doing things properly for 2019 once again.  In the wake of Lo Phi and myself collaborating on Uncanny Valley, I felt it was only proper that the album be given at least one music video to accompany it.  Enter mad genius Jeffrey Garcia, who got with me over the holidays (as well as his band of collaborators you can find in the projects at his Jeffy’s Playhouse YouTube channel) and created a visual blitz to match the sonic assault to the senses that is Crying Freeman.  I’m very happy with the quality of the video and the initial reception, and I’m hoping that the rest of you are impressed by the work that Jeffrey Garcia put in for this one.  If you dig it, share it around, leave it a like and a comment, and go check out the entire album on Bandcamp (and all other music services beginning roughly around January 15).

Quick One :: Jeffrey Garcia And ‘Brian’s Used Cars Emporium’

Jeffrey Garcia is at it again (which implies he ever stops), and this time he brought Brian Kennemer back in the mix.  The duo takes a mocking swing at used car dealerships and their fast talking nature with Brian’s Used Cars Emporium, a highly stylized bit of fun in the vein of Tim & Eric.  The ending is pitch perfect after the brief bout of madness these two drag you through.  Super hilarious for sure.  Make sure to leave it a like, a comment, and share it around while you’re at it.

Cinematic Orchestration :: PNTHN and Jeffrey Garcia Team Up For ‘Henny Dreams’ Video

The combination of PNTHN and Jeffrey Garcia has produced nothing but gold so far, and that trend doesn’t look like it’ll be ending anytime soon.  For their latest collective effort, PNTHN and Garcia put together an ode to the films of TarantinoScorcese and a couple of other prolific filmmakers for the Henny Dreams music video.  The result is a wonderful mash-up of bars, a banging beat and hilarious references to iconic moments in film from the past 30 years or so.  The work from all parties involved has continued to get better and better with each effort, and I can only imagine where PNTHN and Garcia will land if they keep churning out work of this nature.

Leveling Up :: Jeffrey Garcia Readies ‘Radio Candy’ For Release

After a successful crowdfunding venture and many weeks in production, Jeffrey Garcia is almost ready to release his latest creation, and Radio Candy looks like a doozey for real.  With Justin Conway (of Conwaythewhale), Nix Nova, and a host of Garcia regulars in tow, and what looks to be a reinvigorated and bolder approach to his already irreverently brilliant visions, Radio Candy looks to be a definitive point in both 2018’s creative output and Garcia‘s long term career.
