Not long ago we reviewed the Rounder Records release New Multitudes featuring a who’s-who of
you-know-who (see above), and now we are stoked to unveil a video from the
album. The track Will Johnson and Yim Yames are performing is “Chorine My Sheba Queen” – check
it out:






“New Multitudes” is an intimate interpretation of
American icon and musical legend Woody Guthrie’s previously unrecorded lyrics.What
makes this album such a rarity in today’s music world is the allowance of the
songs’ infectious simplicity to stand alone in all their glory.  In doing so, Farrar, Johnson, Parker, and
Yames have paid the greatest compliment to Woody Guthrie and the collaborative
spirit he so greatly embodied.  This is
an album which seamlessly converges the sepia-toned essence of the time honored
past with the risks needed to forge the future.
