Urban Design video for Providence

This is a video I made in collaboration with the Friends of Kennedy Plaza in Providence, RI. It's kind of a pitch for their new vision to redesign this large urban space in downtown provi, and make it a place where people will actually want to hang out (right now its mainly a bus hub).

Vinyl release for Thundersnow Road in NC

Last weekend Paul and I went down to the Nasher Museum in Durham, NC to perform an acoustic set for the release of Thundersnow Road - a vinyl compilation of musical responses to my friend Xaviera Simmon's photography:
Last spring we wrote and recorded a song in response to Xai's photos, which were commissioned by the Nasher for their show The Record - the first museum exhibition focused entirely on the interaction between visual art and vinyl. We were lucky enough to be included on the final 12 inch along with great musicians from bands like TV on the Radio, My Morning Jacket, Superchunk and Les Savy Fav. For more info click the link.

Hulu picks up Wah Do Dem

Now you can watch the whole dang thing on the internet (if you are in the US). I recommend full screen.

New Album, New Name

Just spent a week in the studio with the band (missing several key members in this photo). Our new album should be mixed and finished in a month or two. Look out for our new sound, and a new band name, coming soon (hopefully).

Wah Do Dem hits the streets in NY/LA/Boston

We are pleased to finally bring out Wah Do Dem for a limited theatrical run. It will open on June 18th at Cinema Village in NYC and The Egyptian Theatre in LA. On June 25 you can catch Max's reggae misadventure in Boston at the Somerville Theatre. Please support the film and send your friends. If we do well at the box office it will allow us extend the film to more cities. The DVD, soundtrack and Video-On-Demand drops in October.

If you are in Brooklyn this Sunday please come to our Wah Do Dem Reggae Block Party in Ft. Greene, featuring performances by several artists from our soundtrack, and beautiful summer vibes all around. Here is the flyer designed by our friend Moon of Lustre Kings:

Bless up Jamaica

Sam and I just returned from JA, where we screened Wah Do Dem at the Reggae Film Festival, and again at Hellshire beach in Kingston. We got to chill with our Jamaican brethren Mark Gibbs (above) as well as the Congos, Carl Bradshaw, Major Lazer and many others. Truly a blessing. Check our facebook for more images and movies.
