We asked five musicians to drive and sing without looking at the road, and voila: the second music video for the new "Sycamore" album.
No tricks or harnesses or driving rigs; we shot it all while piloting a 1972 Pontiac LeMans through the town and outskirts of Lemont, IL. Is it a coincidence that LeMans sounds almost just like Lemont? Not sure.
The video features the lovely Karisa Bruin, as well as heroic performances by Manny Sanchez, Blake Cooper, Steve Kouba (thanks for the ride!), Devin Arkin, and Nik Krimm. It was directed by Michael Starcevich (http://www.youtube.com/user/sidewinder3000), with huge production, shooting, and editing assistance by the intrepid Nick Edelberg and also huge help from our girl Friday (through Thursday) Jamie Simkins.
