Tyson Motsenbocker has shared a music video for his new track "Carlo Rossi (Love in the Face of Great Danger)," which comes from his forthcoming album "Milk Teeth," due for release on September 23rd.
about a riot in Mexico," explains Motsenbocker. "In John Steinbeck's Tortilla Flat, the working-class Mexicans (called "Paisanos") spend their evenings looking for gallon bottles of wine, which they drink by placing one finger through the glass loop in the bottle and resting the weight in the crook of their elbows to drink from it using only one hand.
"The act of drinking from the bottle turns the drinker into a kind of Roman statue, with their elbows pointed up toward the stars. Even the Paisanos with the hardest luck can find joy and rest in a bottle and a conversation.
"'Carlo Rossi' is about the love, the joy, and the warm friendship that exists even, maybe especially even, against the backdrop of chaos." Watch the video below:
