THE CHURCH--NEW CD!--AND SHRIEK UPDATE
Work on the Shriek movie proceeds apace. The script is complete (although I'm sure that some of the dialogue and scenes will change once final shooting commences). In addition, Juha Lindroos has completed the animated storyboard version--it's kind of a rough, low-res version of the film. Lots of stock footage and placeholders, which will be useful for The Church so they can score the film. Once they've done that, Juha will shoot the final footage and combine it with the voiceover, the music, and and dialogue. Right now, it looks like it will top out at around 12 minutes. I'm extremely excited about this project as I see it begin to take shape.
In a few weeks, I'll have some exciting information on how and where the film will debut, in addition to the internet.
BUT, the most exciting news right now is that The Church's new CD Uninvited Like the Clouds comes out April 17th. You can buy it at Cooking Vinyl or you can buy it directly from The Church, with pre-orders signed. I've heard two tracks off the CD, "Space Needle" and "Unified Field" and love them both. I've also heard samples of "Easy" and "Never Before," which are awesome. Sounds like another stellar Church CD. (Scroll down on this site to hear samples.) Here's some info from the Cooking Vinyl site:
It was received, played and produced by Steve Kilbey, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles and Marty Willson-Piper, with select guests, in the summertime, at Spacejunk 1 and Dodgy Sound studios in Sydney.
The Spacejunk sessions largely centred on the random, self-generating process of live interaction that spawned two recent, highly regarded Church albums, After Everything Now This and Forget Yourself. The Dodgy sessions were generally more considered, structured and traditional.
Perhaps as a result, the album's expansive textures and arresting melodies form a kind of bridge between the euphoric pop of the band's fortuitous radio intrusions (see "Almost With You", "Metropolis", "Under the Milky Way") and the ominous, unsettled light of their more kaleidoscopic art-rock trips.
Man, I love this band.
