Listen: ‘Lay Off – A Visual Album’ by Late Night Episode

In Lay Off, you’ll find everything from an adult film parody (“Smile“), to a clip of the band snowboarding down a mountain while dressed in nothing but hospital gowns (“Going For Broke“). Other highlights include two Tijuana-set videos– “Smoking Kills“, which has the band attempting to smoke 100 cigarettes in 30 minutes, and “Mama Please“, a film noir-style visual. 
 
Lay Off was self-produced and recorded in Crenshaw, CA, and the videos for each song were filmed as the band toured their way back to their home base of NYC. Eventually, the album turned into a film “about people with something wrong with them.” It’s incredibly well-done and entertaining from start to finish, so we’d love to set up an interview, video post or coverage of any sort. Let me know what you think!
