“Local singer-songwriter Chris Ezelle's record Monticello was one of the coolest surprises of this past spring, a somewhat experimental take on Americana that explored the murkiest corners of Southern folk and blues music. Back in March, we premiered the video for "The Loveless Cafe," a "weirdly eerie" song whose visual accompaniment was similarly unsettling. Below, watch another Monticello clip. This one's for "As Far As the Gas Can Go," a snail-paced dirge from the album. It's a highly surreal, black-and-white affair.”
