Quilt – Tie Up the Tides


If yellowed 110 film prints had a soundtrack, “Tie Up the Tides” would be it. Mellow and sun-drenched, the track ambles along with occasional punches from crashing drums and vocalist Anna Fox Rochinski’s top notes. The accompanying video is the result of what I assume would happen if one went to a craft store while ridiculously high. The colored sand bit at the 45-second mark is either comedic brilliance or unintentional hilarity; the intensity of his gaze makes me believe it has to be the former – complete concentration is the only way to not break.
