Winter's Bone: Music From The Motion Picture
"Debut release from Light In The Attic's new soundtrack label: Cinewax. Dramatic score by Dickon Hinchliffe (founding member of Tindersticks).
, the music: Among the highlights of the
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
are the old time sounds of the Ozarks translated into the 21st century by stellar vocalist Marideth Sisco. Her Ronnie Gilbert (of the Weavers)-inspired vocals are absolute joy -- and she's an expert storyteller of the Ozarks region; her spoken word podcast, These Ozarks Hills, can be found online at KSMU.org. Although these musicians are not yet nationally known (yet), this soundtrack should will draw attention to these regional heroes: Dennis Crider, an expert Western Swing guitar picker; Missouri bluegrass maverick, Bo Brown; claw hammer banjo picker, Van Colbert; guitarist and songwriter, Rick Reding; and Missouri Ozarks fiddle master Billy Ward (to name but a few) that will delight fans of
and classic Americana music. For those seeking more contemporary music flavors, one could do no better than Dickon Hinchliffe -- a founding member of the seminal English band The Tindersticks in which he wrote songs, played violin, guitar and keyboards. Dickon's other movie film scores (with the Tindersticks') include director Claire Denis'
Trouble Every Day
which starred Vincent Gallo."
Seattle's Forgotten Soul of the 1960s and '70s
. "During the late '60s and early '70s, and decades before Nirvana, Microsoft and Starbucks put Seattle on the map, Seattle's African American neighborhood known as the Central District was buzzing. The soul sounds of groups like Black On White Affair, Cookin' Bag, and Cold Bold & Together filled local airwaves and packed clubs seven nights a week. As many of the bands began breaking out nationally via major record deals, television appearances, and gigs with the likes of Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder, the public demanded disco and the scene slipped into obscurity. Flash forward thirty years later, local crate digger DJ Mr. Supreme unearthed Seattle's soulful past by finding a dusty 45 single by Black On White Affair in a .99 cent bin at a Seattle record show. By 2003, he had carved out an impression of a once thriving scene with a pile of Seattle soul 45s, some of which were fetching upwards of $5,000 on the collector circuit. Supreme approached local label Light In The Attic with the idea of releasing an album compilation of his discoveries, and the result was entitled
. At the release party, a line of nostalgic 60 year old fans and funk-hungry 20- somethings wrapped around the block as the musicians inside (currently working as graphic designers, janitors, and truck drivers), reflected on music dreams derailed, and prepared to perform together for the first time in 30 years -- their performance sizzles. Narrated by Seattle's own Sir Mix-A-Lot and featuring interviews with local soul musicians of the era, as well as commentary from Seattle native and legendary producer Quincy Jones, jazz pop star Kenny G (himself a veteran of the 1970s regional scene), and fresh perspectives from members of Soundgarden, Death Cab For Cutie, and Mudhoney,
proves that The Emerald City's got soul!" 87 mins approx; Color; NTSC all-region format.
Project Nim Motion Picture Soundtrack
is the follow up to director James Marsh's Oscar-winning film
Man On Wire
. Mirroring the principles and techniques of a traditional film biography to the life story of an animal, we watch a baby chimpanzee named Nim lead a most unconventional existence. Bolstering the prime archival footage and contemporary interviews is a newly composed and original score by Tindersticks founding member Dickon Hinchliffe (
Trouble Every Day
), the third release from Light In The Attic Records' Cinewax imprint. Existing somewhere between Air's
, the Jean-Claude Vannier assisted instrumental backdrop of Serge Gainsbourg's
Histoire de Melody Nelson
(LITA 040CD), and Michael Nyman's most effective work,
's evocative soundtrack serves to enhance the gripping tale of animal/human interaction. As Nim's extraordinary life unfolds onscreen, a sonic backdrop comprised of various stringed instruments and sympathetic percussion stir pools of deep feeling and showcase dynamic range."
