Back in the Bloombergian era, American Sign Language translator Lydia Callis skyrocketed to local stardom thanks to her high-profile work during the Mayor's Hurricane Sandy press conferences.

The Baltimorean band released their lyric video for the single "Cave," off of their upcoming album The Far Field this morning, and Lamberton is featured front-and-center as he signs the track's lyrics. See below:
