Yo La Tengo x Jim Woodring "Tree"

Experience the magical collaboration of Yo La Tengo and Jim Woodring. The three band members, Ira, Georgia and James come to life as 3 original characters in the land of "the Tree!"

Present/past/future, the real/unreal, visible/invisible, sadness/joy......"the Tree" will grow, enveloping all. And the ecstatic creatures that inhabit "the Tree" are the 3 beings blessed by the god of music. The curtain has been raised for Woodring's mysterious and psychedelic dream land. But the story has just begun......

This product is a set of DVD and 3 soft-vinyl dolls. The DVD contains an original animation (5:20 minutes) of a mind-blowing colorful dream world that centers on "the Tree" and the 3 whimsical characters. It is made by a Japanese production company that specialize in hand-drawn animation: drop. And of course, All NEW music by Yo La Tengo! The 3 colorful soft-vinyl dolls were sculpted by Japanese master sculptor Tomohiro Yasui. Plus there is beautiful packaging design by Jim Woodring with a bonus comic on the back!

Available now as a pre-order at Rotofugi.com, this is a great collaboration of music, art, and designer toys.
