We have to admit it has been like sitting on top of a ready-to-erupt volcano and feeling the anxious smoke climbing up our collective bum in waiting to share this animated video for our song,"Sidewalks" with you all. We had been waiting for the exact right moment to let it go and yesterday Paste Magazine included us in a "Best Of" article which featured ten of their favorite animated music videos. Needless to say that we felt that volcano blow when we saw our video up there alongside iconic ones such as Peter Gabriel's, "Sledgehammer" and Radiohead's, "Burn The Witch." I mean, Radiohead!?!?! Come on! That is maybe our collective bum's favorite band (but seriously, they are our favorite).
The cosmic animation was done by John Grigsby from right here in Denver, CO and we think he totally nailed it. If you don't know him he is a killer bass player who plays with the likes of Gregory Allen Isakov.
And of course, props to Jim Ruberto who did the interstellar mixing and mastering of the audio for the song, yet another righteous Denver music stalwart. There are a lot of Mary Annes on this island, not just Gilligans (reference to an ancient TV show that I have never actually seen. I hope that it is accurate. That Mary Anne was a smoke show, right?)
As always, the video is embedded here on our website, probably directly to the right of this post but you can also link it here.
Link to the Paste article written by the lovely and talented Ian Gassman here as well.
So glad you can finally see this wonderful piece of art....because, honestly my ass was starting to burn lil' a bit.
