Gregory Alan Isakov kicks off his UK tour today (dates below) in support of his new album ‘The Weatherman’, his third full-length release which follows 2009’s This Empty Northern Hemisphere. We’ve chosen Amsterdam as our Song of the Day which was partly inspired by the time he spent in The Netherlands. He is returning to Amsterdam, as well as many other cities, on this nineteen-date European tour.
The video was filmed over the course of a month and a half, using stop-motion animation, dioramas, and live shadow puppetry. It is a continuation of director Laura Goldhamer’s past techniques of mixing stop motion with live action; however, this time, the process was deeply collaborative and organic in nature, as the video was made at the farm that is home to the musician himself.
