After releasing five albums, Kevin Devine decided to fund his next one on Kickstarter. He asked for $50,000, but made that amount in just 8 hours, unexpectedly ending up with $114,805. Some artists might blow all the dough on one extra-expensive album, but not Devine. To reward fans who had more than doubled his money, he gave them twice the material: a pair of simultaneously released albums, Bulldozer and Bubblegum.
In the amusing video, the landlord comes pounding on Devine's door, looking for the rent, so the singer scoots out the window and embarks on a series of adventures. Jordan Noel, who calls Devine his "Brooklyn boy muse," served as director. "It's somewhat rare to work with folks who are so up-for-whatever and willing to do whatever I want them to do," Noel says, "whether it be hanging halfway out of the window of a Brooklyn apartment or... being manhandled by a werewolf-arm-wearing dude he's never met in a basement apartment." Devine and Noel "shot it completely run-and-gun, no permissions or anything."
