HANK MAY SHARES NEW SELF-MADE STOP MOTION VIDEO FOR “HIGH ON LCD” Nov 10, 2021
October 15, 2021—One More Taste of the Good Stuff, the debut album from emerging singer, songwriter and producer Hank May, is available on vinyl today via Dangerbird Records—order HERE. To celebrate the vinyl release today, May shares a new self-made stop motion video for “High on LCD,” which is taken from his debut album—watch it HERE.
“This video is a Halloween coffee table seance for a tenderly terrible tinder date,” May says. “Don’t miss Bob Dylan in the corner dropping his jumbled up ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ cards. I took inspiration from a month spent on the couch presiding over this coffee table and more visits to the thrift stores of Pasadena than I’m proud to admit. I slowly accumulated this small pile of treasures over the course of a week or two, then one night set up my phone on a tripod and went for it. I don’t intend to put quite as much love into a lyric video again in this lifetime, so please enjoy!”
One More Taste of the Good Stuff features previously released tracks “Where I’m Calling From,” “Patsy DeKline,” “2019” and lead single “NBC.” After spending much of his 20s living and playing in New York, May moved home to Los Angeles where he was closer to his family and able to turn the accumulation of notes, phrases and melodies in his head into a record. He wrote much of One More Taste of the Good Stuff in his childhood home, shut away in a sound-proofed practice room adorned with Christmas lights that his father built for him growing up – a room that was demolished soon after he finished recording. The songs that came out of that isolated space possess a similar yearning for human connection, with lyrics that focus on the whimsical minutiae of brief encounters as well as long-standing relationships that ended during this time, such as the passing of Hank’s close friend and biggest supporter.
One More Taste of the Good Stuff features contributions from longtime collaborators and friends including bassist Patrick Taylor, drummer Mark Gardener and keyboardist Max Foreman. Brian Rosemeyer (Cat Power, Kurt Vile) is the record’s mix engineer, and Dave Cooley (Paramore, Tame Impala) hopped on mastering.
