Sole aka Tim Holland recently released his third album with the Skyrider Band titled "Hello Cruel World". Sole sees his current music as fully embracing the artistic possibilities of the DIY sensibility and all of the personal freedom and responsibility that DIY implies. On "Hello Cruel World", he and his band have teamed with a number of indie's leading lights, including Xiu Xiu, Pictureplane, Sage Francis, and more. This new tune "Immortality" features a collaboration with animation artist, Dave Lando. Sole said of the video, "It's a song about futurist/inventor Ray Kurzweil and the modern search for immortality, we teamed up with Decadence Comics artist Dave Lando to create a pretty interesting 'hard science fiction' animation."
