Rusted-Root

True to their earthy image, Rusted Root has just put out a music video as homespun as the band’s rootsy sounds. Taking a day off touring, and with the help of their road crew and tour manager, they visualized the high-spirited track “Cover Me Up” from their 2012 album The Movement, their first release on legendary Shanchie Records. Edited by band member Liz Berlin, the clip features lots of water and sand, plenty of mugging for the camera, and onstage footage.

High Times has said of this perpetually touring jam band, “Thank goodness peace, love, and great grooves haven’t fallen out of fashion.” Without a doubt, “Cover Me Up”‘s calypso-African vibe and infectious positivity is a perfect example.

The band, whose busy tour schedule takes them up and down the East Coast this month, is also giving away the song for free, via this link.
