The concept of time gracefully underscores Kathryn Calder’s solo work. The New Pornographer and former Immaculate Machine frontwoman is working on her kickstarter-funded documentary, A Matter of Time, about the process of recording her first solo album while caring for her dying mother. The new video for “Take A Little Time,” from her eponymous third album is a more lighthearted meditation on temporality — how it can inspire, terrify, and ultimately heal you. She outruns a horde of floating, illustrated monsters before finally reaching the moment of divine inspiration. Watch the video and check out her tour dates below.
