Swiftly on the heels of its festival tour and theatrical run The Auteur is now available to the masses!!! We recommend this movie highly when a good belly laugh is overdue.

We hope to make an announcement about the music of The Auteur soon, but in the meantime (the very soon meantime…like two hours from now: 5pm Jan 26th) you can listen to director James Westby wax poetic in his deadpan style about making the movie while spinning selections from the soundtrack on Portland’s KNRK.  The soundtrack features a compelling mix Portland music luminaries: Laura Gibson, Norfolk & Western, Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble, The Decemberists, The Shaky Hands, and Blanket Music, to name a few.

Here’s the (abridged) segment featuring Blanket Music and Coco Cobra:

Once again, the trailer can be seen here.

*this movie is unrated.  It probably would not meet the ‘R’ criteria, so needless to say it’s not family fare.

Loch Lomond Rescheduled to Jan 17, Offer ‘Blue Lead Fences’ via RCRD LBL

In anticipation of the big co-headlining show for Loch Lomond this week, we thought we’d link to the hiqh quality download of “Blue Lead Fence(s)” offered via the taste-making RCRD LBL blog (albeit few weeks ago). This is a track off the as yet untitled new album, which was recently given a video treatment by photographer Alicia Rose.
