Video: Sage Francis - 'The Best Of Times'

I haven't been keeping up with Sage Francis recently like I did a few years back. I don't think it's due to his music falling off, because what I've heard has been great, but my tastes have changed and haven't sought out as much independent hip-hop as I use to. That's too bad because I'm probably missing out on some great stuff and that's something I'll have to remedy.

Luckily, I didn't miss out on this fantastic song off Sage's most recent album Li(f)e, which is an effort where each song is a collaboration with a different artist. The impressive collabo list includes members of Grandaddy, Death Cab For Cutie, Calexico and DeVotchKa. The video below however is a collaboration with Yann Tiersen who is most famous for composing the music for the move Amelie.

I can't remember a hip-hop song in recent memory that has stirred up this much nostalgia and emotion in me. It's definitely worth a listen. Check out the video for 'The Best Of Times' below...
