Works Progress March 2012 - Willow, Without Feathers, Grave (1167)

Hey y’all,

Just thought we would share with you all another awesome video of some of the new material we are working on. Remember how we told you we stayed with T, Jono, Ryan & Tamir during SXSW? Well, we shot a video in their living room which also doubled as our sleeping quarters.

Our good friend Colin from Philadelphia has recently been working on a documentary project featuring some awesome artists like Heartless Bastards, Sun Airway, Mates of State, Ava Luna and tons more playing takeaway style versions of their songs. Fortunately for us, our schedules at SXSW lined up just right and we were able to do one ourselves. Check it out. Also, take a look at some of the stills from the video as well below. So honored to be involved with such beautiful work.
