Moving Pictures: A first look at Hello Kavita's "The Last Time"
He's done it again, ladies and gentlemen. The wildly prolific and ever talented Rod Blackhurst has made another video that's as artful and compelling visually as the music of the artist he's working with. If we weren't already smitten with his subjects this time around, Hello Kavita -- who, with To A Loved One, delivered one of our favorite records last year -- we would be now.
On this clip for "The Last Time," Blackhurst does a great job of infusing each scene with palpable sense of melancholy, particularly towards the end as he captures the notably pensive expressions of the characters -- in this case Corey Teruya and his bandmates -- as they mouth the words: "Maybe it's the last time you'll see your friends/maybe it's the last time to make amends." Nice work, Mr. Blackhurst. You've done the Kavita boys justice.
