BadBadNotGood and Samuel T. Herring on hanging out and collaborating in Toronto

CBC Music

You never know who you'll run into at an airport. For Toronto free-form jazz group BadBadNotGood, a run-in with Future Islands singer Samuel T Herring led to a fruitful musical friendship. 

In The Junction, a new animated video series from the Red Bull Music Academy, animator Kyle Mowat illustrates that fateful meeting and the long nights in Toronto that led to "Time Moves Slow" off the four-piece's 2016 album IV. Watch it below.

The Red Bull Music Academy was launched in 1998, and each year features a workshop for selected participants, culminating in live events and festivals. This year, RBMA touches down in Montreal from Sept. 24 to Oct. 28. Visit their website for more information.
