Under Crooked Trees video by Billy Hunt

Just before heading out to Las Vegas we met up with Billy Hunt in Charlottesville to shoot a video for Under Crooked Trees from One Tongue.

We projected beach footage from our time in Destin, Florida where we recorded One Tongue and then went out to the site of the demolished IX building just in time to catch the dying light of a winters day.

Billy worked his magic and just got us the finished video. He's an awesome dude and super pro to work with! Check out his stuff over at Billy Hunt Photography.

In the Material World

We had a nice break from the road this past holiday season visiting our families in northern Virginia, throwing logs in the wood stove and cranking out some new hand-painted copies of One Tongue and Emanations/Powerlines.

I think Lindsay got carpal tunnel from painting non-stop for a few days in a row.


gold edition of Emanations/Powerlines from our last tour
