"Seafarers is a feature-length documentary, shot in Rotterdam, the world's largest port. It follows four seafarers -- a Swede, a Polynesian, a Croat and a Nigerian -- each with their own incredible story -- as they wait to go back to sea. In a sailor's bar, men get drunk and play guitars, trying to enjoy their small amount of shore leave in the Port of Rotterdam -- an inhuman, futuristic landscape of refineries, burning gas and vast chemical tankers. Much to the delight of director Jason Massot, Will and crew produced a theme for each one of the sailors, evocative of their surroundings. We're delighted too -- 'silent'-music records from Will Oldham sell better than some people's 'loud'-music albums. So, everybody's happy -- except you landlubbers, of course. But you'll be happy soon enough -- once you get an earful of Seafarers Music. The latest in a series of (mostly) instrumental EPs from Will Oldham."
