  • love 3:53 when banjo guy is yellin along

  • If you ever get a chance to see them LIVE, do it! I’ve seen them 3 or 4 times and it’s worth EVERY last dime.

  • I’ve been hearing this on the radio. Much better than the original, I’d say.

  • Niiiiiice!

  • Dope find. I wish I was back in my home state, the band is playing the Oberlin Folkfest tomorrow May 8th. Hometown Jam!

    I heard this on the radio too its pretty awesome.

  • Always great to see brown/black/chocolate people in art-illustrations. It actually makes me feel very good to see this and hear this. I am sick of the little pretty white chicks wearing their little pretty flower dresses singing about the prairies and the mountains when you know all they do is hibernate at their local American Apparel.

    Yeap. I dig it. A lot.

  • I was just watching this on tuesday! What are the chances?!

  • MarlenePB

    well this totally blew me away 🙂 pretty sweet talent. kinda once in a lifetime thing.

  • Yeah, got their cd a few months ago and I loved it! What drew me to their cd was actually the cover. I work at a radio station and we have a drop box FULL of cds from labels and I noticed this one because it stood out. great listen 🙂

  • they sound awesome, but I’m not down with these lyrics… i might check out another song or two.

    • It’s a cover of a Blu Cantrell song. Listen to their originals if you want a more pure taste.

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
