Oh, Pete Ohs

While making my daily Pitchfork pit-stop, I noticed the site was pimping the latest work by Cincinnati native Pete Ohs, a fresh-faced dude who’s directed crafty music videos for such Indie faves as Wavves, Ghosthustler, Fiery Furnaces and The Unicorns.

“When I’m with You,” a ’50s-influenced piece of fuzzy Surf-Pop by LA-based Best Coast, features a Ronald McDonald clone on what looks like a date with the band’s frontwoman Bethany Costentino. Sunglasses, a bedspread with a pot leaf on it, cats, In-N-Out Burger, a sunny beach and a longhaired guitarist guy are also featured in the sweet, lo-fi video. —-

Ohs, who apparently relocated to the West Coast at some recent point, still works with Cincinnati-based PROJECTMILL, the kids behind DANCE_MF, among other fun multimedia endeavors.

Now that I think about it, I’m pretty sure I saw Ohs shooting some of the performances at the recent MusicNOW fest. Should be cool to see what he does with that footage.
