“Love the Lie” is quickly surpassing “Best of Times” as my favorite song off of Sage Francis’ latest, Li(f)e. While I noticed that the music for the track was a little different than Sage’s usual stuff (already pretty varied), I didn’t realize it had been written by the late, undeniably great Mark Linkous.
That fact certainly adds to the whole experience, but we’ve got even more to appreciate on top of the musical collaboration.
The video, featuring stop-motion animation by Jim Foltice, fits the music and lyrics perfectly. All in all, an affecting bit of work featuring some very talented artists.
