Simple Music Video Series: The Tender Fruit's "Weighted Down"

Posted by on Fri, Jun 22, 2012 at 11:31 AM

When we began brainstorming artists for this series, Christy Smith and her Tender Fruit project were one of the first I wanted to recruit. Shortly after the new year, Christy and cohort Patrick Dyer Wolf graciously agreed to be one of the test subjects for the series. After a fun photo shoot involving Christy's collection of masks, the duo ran through a series of songs together and solo for us.

Today's Simple Music video, recorded at F/Stop Grooves studio in Raleigh, is an unreleased number being considered for inclusion on their follow up to 2010's Flotsam & Krill.

The Tender Fruit play Local 506 next Saturday, June 30, with Jeff Crawford and Skylar Gudasz & The Ugly Girls. Tickets for the 9:30 p.m. show are $7.

The purpose of the Independent Weekly's Simple Music Video Series is to capture local and touring musicians who we feel are producing something special. The hope is to capture something very simple in order to mirror the experience of viewing a performance as if you were in a small crowd watching a quiet set. We hope for content of the music to be the primary focus of the series, not multiple camera angles meant to keep the viewer guessing and entertained.

Most bands featured in the series will be a sample of the deep pool of talent in the Triangle, while others will represent some of our touring favorites.
