Former Menomena member Brent Knopf, along with Dave Lowensohn and Brandon Laws made their way to our NYC studio, set up and gave us a stellar session spotlighting the second Ramona Falls album Prophet. Among the new songs played that day, “Spore” (seen above) is currently the third most scrobbled track, thanks to over 70,000 of their listeners. “Bodies Of Water” and “Proof”, also performed, are right behind at #’s 4 and 5.
Ramona Falls – Bodies Of Water
The new album’s opening track, which kind of deals with the idea that things that most nourish us are also some of those that most that endanger us.
Ramona Falls – Proof
The music for proof came from a brainstorm session that Brent did for a friend. She asked for a whole bunch of songs for her modern dance company in a day. The guitar part comes from these sessions. As a kid Brent was fascinated with the fact that when you stand on the equator at noon, you are actually standing on your shadow, hence the chorus “It’s noon on the equator”, “It’s noon on the equator”. It’s an obvious metaphor for not having a clear sense of direction, not really knowing which way is which, being kind of disoriented.
Ramona Falls – Fingerhold
Blended together from two or three demos. At the end of the song on the album, it features an uncommon occurence in indie-rock these days, a guitar solo! Brent took 25 takes from John and 10 from Matt and took all of them and spliced the interesting moments and “glued” then together into a really weird collage of noise.

When Prophet was released, Ramona Falls listening took a nice spike up and over the last few months have settled at a steady rate.
