The original soundtrack for strong>The Comedy is available on LP at Norman Records or via iTunes. It’s the perfect pairing, taking each listener through the “autumn of the American Era.” Gardens & Villa, Here We Go Magic, Bill Fay, GAYNGS and Donnie & Joe Emerson are just a few of the artists featured on the soundtrack.
The A.V. Club described ‘The Comedy’ as “the spiritual successor to Mike Nichols’ The Graduate and Carnal Knowledge.” New Video described it as a “powerful and provocative character study that touches a darkness behind the humor that resonates with viewers long after the story ends.”
And just in case you Londoners need more reasons to go and watch:
“Tim Heidecker gives a compulsively fascinating performance.” – Variety
“By far one of the most wildly inappropriate and pitch black comedies I’ve ever seen in my life.” – Film Threat
“A powerful generational statement.” – Indiewire
“Transgressively brilliant…” – Village Voice
A few weeks ago Stephen McBean, of Black Mountain, shared news that a new Pink Mountaintops album Get Back will be out April 29th and you had the chance to hear the new (beautifully filthy) track “North Hollywood Microwaves”.
The new video by Olivia Jaffe features Stephen McBean and band in glorious VHS resolution with more costume changes than you can shake a badass stick at. According to McBean, the video came together after he heard director Jaffe about her still-working 80′s VHS camera. This video marks the first time they’ve worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc’s execution (no need to check the history books on that one, we can say from being there that it’s true).

Angel Olsen is no stranger to listeners who caught her vibrant and expressive voice in her debut EP Strange Cacti or later on Half Way Home, where her sound expanded and her lyrics cut deeper.
Today, Angel’s debut album on Jagjaguwar, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, is out worldwide.
On the new album, Pitchfork named it Best New Music yesterday, in the UK the album received rave reviews including four stars in The Observer, and NPR’s Bob Boilen named it his “Album of the Week” this week on All Songs Considered writing, “I’ve been living with this music for a bit now. It’s my friend, my comfort; it shakes me, saddens me and lifts me”.
With BYFFNW, Angel further explores a familiar sound, but only widens her vocal range to new expressive heights. She captures both bravery and vulnerability in her war cries bringing the listener closer if they aren’t already sucked into Angel’s crackling fire gaze. Her new album, produced by John Congleton, stokes the fire and aggravates the flames inside of Angel releasing an energy and voice not heard before.
Get a sense of this new sound by listening to a few tracks from the album above or watching her newest video for “Hi-Five” directed by Zia Anger on YouTube, here.
