Trailer to "Where the Wild Things Are" directed by Spike Jonze

"Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak is a classic children's picture book and a very iconic piece of American literature (even though it has a total of 10 sentences of text within it). The story tells the tale of Max, a boy who's sent to his room without supper for causing some mischief. Max ends up going on an imaginary adventure where he encounters some fantastic characters, known as "The Wild Things."

(checkout this and 12 other photo stills over at USA Today)

The book has a massssssive cult following and buzz around a potential film has been abound for years. Well now thanks to Director Spike Jonze (ye of stylish films AND music videos) the story comes to life in a unique take on live action. I haven't had the time to do any in depth reading on the making of this project, but from the looks of this trailer, the Wild Things characters look to be a mix of live action and CG. Jonze's distinct visual art-piece style is perfect for this tale and the trailer features music by the Arcade Fire (who seem to be featured in the trailers to every VISUALLY stunning film recently). Kick back, feel nostalgic, and enjoy:




Seeing as Spike Jonze AND his brother Sam (aka DJ Squeak E Clean of N.A.S.A.) have both recently finished some amazingly creative projects, I'd love to see some video remixes of Where the Wild Things released featuring some N.A.S.A. music!

FoundTrack's Winter '09 Collection (Track 7/22) - Theresa Andersson - Birds Fly Away


Theresa Andersson - Birds Fly Away (Track 7/22)
Album - Hummingbird, Go! (Sample/Purchase)
Label - Basin St. Records
http://www.myspace.com/theresaanderssonmusic
www.theresaandeersson.com

Photo Taken By Miranda Penn Turin

Theresa Andersson is a New Orleans based, singer songwriter with a penchant for unconventionality. Instead of seeking refuge in recording her debut album, Hummingbird, Go! in the outskirts, Theresa sought inspiration from her own environment and the earthy and organic elements of the lands she knew best. From her adopted home in New Orleans, she inherited the sounds of its rich musical landscape, with featured guest and Louisiana legend, Allen Touissant. Theresa also found a great source in the wonderful think tank that is her kitchen, which was the studio where she recorded her demos and her full-length. Soda pop bottles mimicked sounds of the vibraphone and instead of a keyboard she rubbed the rims of filled wine glasses. Theresa beatboxed the percussive elements and slide guitar textures were taken from her specialty instrument, the violin. And yet, Hummingbird, Go! also brought Andersson full circle, back to her childhood home: The Swedish island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea, as she happened upon acclaimed producer Tobias Froberg (Peter Moren) at a New Orleans club and he would eventually turn into her productioin chief, providing some of her native Scandinavian indie pop and adding Norwegian artist Ane Brun to the guestlist on the final product. In order to replicate this home-made album on tour, Theresa has crafted a one-woman band set-up, using two looping pedals and a variety of effects. This captivating showmanship can be best seen in one of the videos that gave her worldwide appeal on youtube, such as this home video from her kitchen of our featured "Birds Fly Away".



Birds on the street says Theresa killed it in Austin. Be sure to check her myspace for updates on her touring schedule.

"Detroit's Underground Resistance": Rad Feature on Detroit Techno by Current Media

FoundTrack's friends over at Current Media (specifically TK) just posted this banger of a video profiling Detroit's "Underground Resistance" music collective, who are some of the main pioneers of Techno Music. In TK's own words:

"Underground Resistance is Techno's original highly efficient, aggressive and very strategic minded unit with an extreme approach to image and marketing whose mobile and fiercely competitive company is not dependent on trends, gimmicks or fads as are other forms of music and their related industries are today."

For those of you who aren't familiar with Current, they're a web and DirecTV based channel that features both user generated AND internally produced material (checkout their recently launched collaboration with Rotten Tomatoes featuring FoundTrack friend and all around funnyman Brett Erlich). Kick back and checkout the rad video... we definitely learned a dope thing or two!:

Art meets Machine- F131 Hellcat Combat Powercycle


As a recent M1 licensee, I've been taking to the streets and enjoying the true unity between man and machine - let me tell you it is amazing feeling. Let me also be honest with you, it is nerve wrecking!!! As with many things in life, those that give us the greatest fear or challenge also provide a greater sense of reward. During my window shopping - that is Window PC/online shopping - I've seen several types of motorcycles from various manufacturers (big, small, and one man-bands). The other day I came across something that would make the Boy Wonder himself say, "Good golly Batman!"


The F131 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle may be one of the most beautiful motorcycles I've ever seen. The talented group at Confederate MOTORCYCLES have created a masterpiece of metal, aluminum and rubber. This Bike is Bad A$!!! Although I could never picture Adam West riding this bad boy, I could definitely see Christian Bale scouring the streets of Gotham on the HELLCAT! If I were working for Warner Bros. I would definitely contact Confederate for a concept Bike for the next Dark Knight feature. Clean, lean and mean...this is one hell of a riding machine! The combination of art, craftsmanship and design make this bike number one on my list - unfortunately for me this work of art will set you back around $60K - a little out of my league!

Jini's Pick of the Week - Popmorphic


With the recent news of music videos being taken off youtube in the UK, here's something fun about the future of music videos. Popmorphic is taking live performances and user interactivity to the next level. This music video player has customisable viewing controls with the power to focus on different band members and the length of clip edits. So far the site is limited to unknown indie Scottish rock bands, but is definitely exciting for music fans' viewing experience.
