Film : Painted Palms in The Neighborhood

Now here’s a deliciously brilliant idea: a mini-documentary inserted into a music video. The folks at Yours Truly & Audyssey have it covered in The Neighborhood, a project that is equal parts music video and ode to place. Started in April of 2011 as a way to document events of the same name, the idea is to capture the musical spirit of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area on an intimate level.

To date, Yours Truly has captured 5 different band’s take on the South of Market neighborhood. In their most recent release, Secretly Canadian artists Painted Palms share their awe of the city and their take on creative partnerships, all layered over the electrically dreamy Big Balloon. How’s taking a walk around San Francisco with the boys of Painted Palms sound? See the episode here:

Yours Truly says we can expect one new release per month. They’re presently finalizing details for their next episode, which will reportedly feature a band who no longer lives in San Fran, but has strong roots there. Until then, you can get your groove on with some more Painted Palms and their soon to kick off tour with Calgary’s BRAIDS and Pepper Rabbit. You can order a copy of Painted Palms’ debut 12″, Canopy, here.
