ok, our second album is recorded, done!
Matt our soundman (see his blog http://www.wotarackit.blogspot.com/) is gone now, he's been a perfect company for almost two months. We are very much happy with the sound and the songs, it's groovy! it should come out in Spring 2010.
In the meantime, we've been trying our skills this week into the great adventure of music for films.
We met a french guy in London few years ago, called Guillaume Foresti. He saw us play one night with the Black Lips at the Proud Gallery. He kept in touch with us over the months and talked about his project of a short film with Stephane Demoustier. So here we are now, working on the soundtrack.
The film was shot in 35mm with the two actors Marc Barbé and Arly Jover. I have to say after 2 months working on our album, it is relaxing to record an instrumental soundtrack, to mess around with noises and effects haaaaaa (sound of content).
The 2 directors talked about "Sombre" by Philippe Grandieux as an inpsiration for their film, musicaly. The soundtrack was by Alan Vega (member of Suicide). Below is the final scene of that movie with the cover of a Gainsbourg song by the american band Elysian Fields. It's great.
