Hudson: Against the Grain

Hudson (aka Travis Aulsebrook) is an Austrailian folk artist with a new EP out this year entitled Open Up Slowly. The entire album can be streamed via his bandcamp page tagged at the beginning of the article or you can purchase the EP for the low low price of 8 bucks. This EP has all the makings of a great future for Hudson with hook, balanced pop orchestration, engaging lyrics, and that innate and hard to define sing-along quality that makes pop music worthwhile. I was really happy that this EP found its way into my headphones this weekend. But here's the best part, stop motion animation! Hudson teamed up with animator Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong) to create this hip music video for the EP's single Against the Grain. What's not to love? Check it out, buy the EP, and make your next commute with Hudson and Open Up Slowly. You dig?
