FILM PREMIERE // ‘The Comedy’ UK Premiere Is Tonight At Prince Charles Cinema In London, Original Soundtrack Available Now

Director Rick Alverson‘s critically acclaimed film, The Comedy, has its UK premiere tonight at the Prince Charles Cinema in London. The screening starts at 9pm and tickets are available now.

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

WATCH // Angel Olsen Shares New “Forgiven/Forgotten” Video, New Album Out 2/18/14

Just a few weeks ago we announced Angel Olsen‘s new album Burn Your Fire for No Witness. We also shared new song “Forgiven/Forgotten” which garnered Pitchfork‘s “Best New Track” status and had Fader saying Angel “has gone ahead and plugged in, with a full rock band sound that seems like it’s rearing to overwhelm everything in its path”.

Today we are excited to premiere the first video from the new album for the track “Forgiven/Forgotten”. Directed by longtime Angel collaborator, Zia Anger, and shot on 16mm, the visual shows Angel in enchanted suburbia with a mate who may no longer be in the picture, literally. Watch the video above or on YouTube/Vevo.

SESSION / Moonface Releases Paper Bag Session Of “Love the House You’re In”, Announces North American Tour Dates

For Moonface‘s latest release, Spencer Krug has stripped down his sound to just a piano and his voice, leaving the effects, overdubs, and electronic elements out.

Paper Bag Records filmed a simply stunning video of the new song “Love The House You’re In” live for their Sessions series. Get a sense of seeing Spencer live by watching the session above or on YouTube here.
