New Multitudes (Parker, Johnson, Farrar, James) - "Fly High" (Video):

A couple friends of ssktda and a couple heroes of ours as well came together to form the "super group" of folk and roots heavy hitters, New Multitudes. Anders Parker (Varnaline, Gob Iron), Will Johnson (Centro-matic, South San Gabriel), Jay Farrar (Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt), and Jim James (My Morning Jacket) put out the New Multitudes record in which they cracked open Woody Guthrie's notebooks and lyrics via the ever gracious Nora Guthrie (Woody's daughter). What transpired was an entire album together with a full bonus disc to boot if you were lucky enough to get the limited edition. Here's Anders with the vocals on one of our favorite tracks, "Fly High"...if you've never immersed yourself in it, get at it!
