So... I've been excited for a while now about Gifts or Creatures new Sophomore album. They've put a lot of time into it and developed the songs and textures with so much care and grace. From some of the first tracking sessions at the Miss Muse house in Kalamazoo to the Final overdubs at La Luna, they've been seasoning this album with such fine taste and always feeding the crew with homemade cookies and other goodness.
I had the privilege to trip out to Nordhouse Dunes lakeshore to make a Super 8 film music video with the couple. It will accompany the song "Relicts & Ghosts". There was a certain element of the landscape that I knew could never fail. Lake Michigan always will amaze, and Nordhouse Dunes of all places is packed densely with magic life.
We walked, ran, swam, jumped and splashed..... and well, as for the rest, you'll just have to wait until the video comes out. But until then, enjoy this still image from our little adventure.
