It’s a video:
In November of 2010, after a Canadian tour, I was left in charge of getting our van and its contents back to Toronto from Vancouver in one piece. This was an incredibly long drive, but with Steve as my navigator – he doesn’t have a drivers license – we made the fifty hours of drive time in four days. And what better thing to do on a boring drive for such a long time than record stop motion videos along the way. We filmed all of these clips using our iPhones, capturing the drives through the B.C. mountains, over the prairies, down through North Dakota, through Chicago and home to Toronto. It felt like the images would go well with the most ‘ambient’ song on the record, so now I suppose ‘Everything You Need’ is the retroactive soundtrack for our journey.
