“Crimson Saddle Velvet Boots” is the 3rd Single released from JD King’s highly anticipated, upcoming album Moon Gardens. This one is our FAVORITE (so far) at Lyriquediscorde. The 60’s infused, Psych-meets-Folk, with the Southern California ocean and the nearby canyons influence weaved through it – “Crimson Saddle Velvet Boots” is a MUST HEAR. The accompanying film (because this is film and not simply a music video) is spacey, stunning, and surreal. I feel psychically elevated when I take it all in – the audio and the visual – as if it is becoming one with my headspace, and bloodstream.
“Crimson Velvet Saddle Boots” by JD King
Or maybe it is JD’s headspace, and bloodstream, we are floating in when pressing play. It’s quite a trip, this musical and visual time-travel experience. Squint and you may just feel like you’ve gone back to 60’s Los Angeles, sipping candy-colored drinks by a pool with floating blow-up flamingos, riding on motorcycles without helmets down Malibu beach, or creating art all-night in the Topanga Canyon of those days past.
The film above was directed by filmmaker Avery Wheless, with cinematographer Juju Sorelli and Gilles O’Kane. It stars JD, and renowned visual artist Ale Washington, with costume design by artist Lucas Davis.
