watch
Stirring short featuring footage from "There Once Was an Island"

SHFT compadre and Honey Brothers member Ari Gold (no not the Entourage one) just sent over this moving bit of video based on an idea that came to him in a dream.

Swimming Against the Rising Tide

Secular climate change activists can learn from evangelical Christians

By KRISTIN DOMBEK It never feels like summer starts until the first time I go to the beach. To stand nearly naked and heavy from winter on the water’s edge, wade awkwardly into the shallows, dive under the first cold wave, taste first salt, surface and dive again to reach the calmer waters beyond, floating there until water and skin become the same temperature — this is the best way......read more

Sean Pecknold's tripped-out animation for top track off Seattle folkies' latest LP

We managed to miss this one when it dropped late last year, and goddamn if it may just be one of the videos of the year.

The video, directed by Sean Pecknold (brother of Fleet Foxes frontman Robin), features some eye-popping stop......read more
