SOUND team, Cali Showcase, the Big Double Pod & YOU
Okay, my file-host is working as I'm typing this, and I can assure you these are working files, so if you have trouble viewing/downloading, just check back throughout the day. Enjoy:
As if the band wasn't already generous enough with their crackshot
tunes and good-natured joshin', SOUND team just provided me with an exclusive iPod video-ready short film for "The Fastest Man Alive," one of my favorite tracks off the much-lauded Work EP. I must say that everything about this exclusive is pretty sick, so if there are any tech-cynics out there, let me just say the short looks and sounds perfect on the new iPod, as well as your little Quicktime viewer.
For those keeping tabs, too, the short film was shot by the band on a Super 8 over the past couple of years and later edited by frequent Spoon collaborator, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre camera man, Peter Simonite.
And because you're now hungry for more good news, well, SOUND team has passed on some tour dates for what appears to be a full-fledged California showcase. Make your way to one or all if the time is right, which it usually is:
1/24: Cinespace, Los Angeles, CA
1/25: The Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA (w/ Film School)
1/26: Bottom of Hill, San Francisco, CA (w/ Film School)
1/27: Rickshaw Stop, San Francisco, CA
1/30: Spaceland, Los Angeles, CA
