After the two videos were shown, the crowd was directed to a mysterious website, icommai.com. At the time of writing (June 3), the website displays, among other things, a variety of esoteric gif art, a YouTube video of Callie Day & Lan Wilson performing ‘I Know The Lord Will Make A Way’ and a list of presumed collaborators, including Moses Sumney and The National’s Bryce Dessner.
