Ben Wendel is about to take his Seasons Band with him to New York’s Village Vanguard May 14-19th. It’s going to be a highly anticipated week for one of the best works of 2018. To lead up to it all, Wendel has released one last music video from The Seasons, for the song June, as usual directed by Alex Chaloff and showing this band with just as much beauty as the music they’re playing. Check out the video after the jump and if you happen to be in New York, this may not be a week at the Vanguard you’d want to miss.
