VIDEO: The Park x Darondo – Jesse James
by Gregorio Vincent
Bay Area rhythm section The Park have been the backing band for BIG K.R.I.T., Freddie Gibbs, Alice Russell, Jesse Boykins II, and others. This month The Park is joining forces with indie-country/roots artist Lee Bob Watson and soul legend Darondo to release their Silver Cloud Time Machine project, a white 7″ vinyl that brings together two generations of Bay Area funk.
“Jesse James” is the first single from this project and the video features a blaxploitation narrative and chase scene straight from the70s. The video is the first in an unfolding story of crime, mystery, and romance, that is told throughout the Silver Cloud Time Machine project. I loving the blaxploitation motif and how they stay true to the era. Checkout “Jesse James” below and look out for the Silver Cloud Time Machine project drop May 29 here.
