A collaboration of San Francisco-based band Seventeen Evergreen with Oakland-based directing maestros Corey Creasey and Ian Kibbey - aka Terri Timely - for Polarity Song has resulted in something remarkable and beautiful - with the crucial input of Ian and Corey's (SF-based) artist friend Sarah Applebaum.

Applebaum's medium of choice are textiles to make 'soft sculptures' - put to brilliant use in the Timely's creation of a very woolly and colourful alternate universe within a drab, cavernous thrift store (probably somewhere in the Bay Area). Stephen Richards of Lucky Number calls it "the best video we've ever commissioned."
