Introducing, the women of Freeport....
Meet Dusty, the Maniac. Always thinking, always scheming, always tending, always working. Hyper energized, sex-drenched and crazed. Will she ever find time to rest?
Meet Beverly, the Narcissist. She loves strutting her glamour and delusional youth, unaware this keeps her tethered, tied, and behind bars. Hope the neighbors see it all...
Meet Valerie, the Depressive. Angry, alone and despondent, drowning in despair about all the words said and unsaid. Can she put the martini down and scrabble the pieces back together again?
Meet Jazinka, the Liberator. Wild, free, undressed JOY.
“Jazinka," directed and styled by Bon Jane along with Sam Baumel, stars musician and performance artist Idgy Dean (who also co-conceived and edited the video). Shot in Freeport, New York, she plays three different versions of an oppressed suburban housewife, and one sexually liberated young force of a woman who manages to escape.
The high energy track is the first single off of Idgy Dean's newest EP, Heavy Cosmic Lumber, which you can find and stream along with her other music on Spotify, though please lend your support at PledgeMusic.
Idgy Dean has a long history of working with these directors, having collaborated with Bon Jane on the video for “The Indian Squirrel Dance”, and with Sam Baumel on the video for “Onion’s Milk”.
Idgy Dean was one of the 70 hand-picked artists from around the world to attend the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal this past fall, where she participated in two weeks of mentoring lectures and studio workshops with musical luminaries including Björk, Pauline Oliveros, Susan Rogers, Jam & Lewis, Deradoorian, tUnE-yArDs, Dev Hynes, Thundercat, Dorian Concept, and Matias Aguayo. She tracked her new EP, Heavy Cosmic Lumber, at Red Bull Studios here in New York over the winter, and they released this live video/piece recorded there a few months back.
She is a self-taught one-woman queer feminist yogi psych rocker who writes all of her own material, and plays all of the instruments both on record and live onstage (via looping). The new EP, Heavy Cosmic Lumber, was engineered and co-produced by Evan Sutton (aka Astrolith), a fellow RBMA alum who recently collaborated on a new track with his mentor Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode, plus Cakes Da Killa, Spank Rock, and TT The Artist. Sutton also mixed Idgy Dean’s last record, OMINOUS HARMINUS.
She had her TV debut last year on The Chris Gethard Show, plus a few song placements, including this Dell commercial and Vetra Sunscreen spot. Her press highlights include a feature on NPR's WNYC Soundcheck, Tom Tom Magazine, Noisey, The Village Voice, and Refinery 29. She recently opened for Thundercat and Dorian Concept, and will be touring for the foreseeable future.
