Video: Rod Hamilton - Gato

Baltimore percussionist and vibe-healer Rod Hamilton reached out with a tender hand earlier this year when he mailed me a copy of his brief cassette Teal, a taut collection of whimsical flashbacks and hypnotic dream sequences released on the Player Press label. It's the most listened unsolicited submission I've received, and one that's seductive with a partner in a cold early morning bedroom or as lonely Walkman wandering rusty bridges and green lush (both scenarios tested). A Special Nod: ripping YouTube and Archive.org footage for music videos is so common now that it's almost ineffective as a promotional tool, but I can think of few images that compliment Hamilton's music better than these head-spins at high-altitude, loose denim billowing in the wind.
