French Cassettes Release ‘Utah’ Video

French Cassettes singer and songwriter Scott Huerta was living beneath a stairwell in San Francisco, CA (cramped, but only $200 a month) when he wrote what would become his band’s sophomore LP, Rolodex. “I adopted the mentality, which was probably unhealthy, that every song I wrote needed to be my favorite song,” he remembers. “I lost my mind so many times in the middle of the night.”

The eight tracks and 24 minutes of Rolodex are an epic statement of purpose in a decidedly taut package; hook-filled and rooted in pop, layered with intricate vocals and counter-harmonies, inventive percussion, and every shade of clean and fuzzy guitars stacked up like an orchestra. French Cassettes will release Rolodex on December 11 via Tender Loving Empire + today shared the video for the “disco-infused, power-pop, shimmering indie thrasher” (BreakThru Radio) “Utah” to announce the album that’s been eight years in the making. // Continue to the full article

The video, which drops today, combines the iconic melodrama of its source material with Trixie’s patented life-size Barbie style as imagery of cowboys, horses and classic videos games are projected over her, serving as an allusion to the grainy footage, vintage montage aesthetic of Lana Del Rey’s original video. // Continue to the full article

Brian Eno Film Music 1976 – 2020

Brian Eno releases Film Music 1976 – 2020 – his first-ever collection of music from his film and television soundtrack oeuvre digitally on November 13, 2020, and on 2LP and 1CD on January 22, 2021. Spanning five decades, this release features classic Eno compositions and includes some lesser-known gems and seven previously unreleased tracks.

Eno’s long-standing affair with film goes all the way back to 1970 with his soundtrack to Malcolm Le Grice’s short experimental film Berlin Horse.
