Efterklang / Giveaway

Back in February we had Booooooom’s first ever film screening (here) and the film I chose was “An Island”, a marvelous collaboration between Efterklang and Vincent Moon. Well my buddy Rasmus, from the band, has graciously given me a beautiful DVD package to give away to one of you!

So who wants it?

Stash / Short Films 1

Stash, the monthly DVD magazine, just sent me out Short Films 1. I am stoked on this DVD mainly because I finally have high quality versions of Johnny Kelly’s Procrastination and The Black Heart Gang’s The Tale Of How (I’ve mentioned both before).

Thanks YouWorkForThem! Pt. 1

The amazing folks over at YouWorkForThem just sent me over a bundle of goodies! The Interpretation is a beautifully abstract short film by Michael Paul Young (visuals) and Michael Cina (sound). It’s kind of like a deep sea episode of Planet Earth but all the creatures have been reduced to the essence of their form; a fish – a single stroke. The score is a mix of minimal electronic and natural ambiance and, when combined with the visuals, the mood is not unlike the Jaguar Shark scene in The Life Aquatic.

Jay Dee / 40-Piece Orchestra

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).

There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!
