For Your Eyes and Ears: Elvis Costello and The Roots on New Music Weekly

Is this the epic collaboration of the year or what? Elvis Costello and The Roots join forces on the new album, Wise Up Ghost, out today. We couldn’t help but feature the track “Come The MEANTIMES” from these cool cats in our shiny New Music Weekly video.

We’re not the only ones whose minds were blown by the music. Video artist Bart Hess weighs in on the bold-as-brass sound:

"After hearing the track I wanted to create a brass band, an extraordinary brass band. The heads of the musicians are reshaped into golden instruments, which the band members hit and blow to create shape and sound. The video is a play on elastic materials that I gave a new appearance using light and shine spray while molding them over objects that transform the face."
