Author/editor Zack Wentz (The Garbageman and the Prostitute, newdeadfamilies.com) has teamed up with Taj Easton and Shelby Gubba to create a new multi-media project called (Charles)Book&Record. “Tradition” is the third video in a triptych, part of what they call “sci-fi-surrealist-soul.” The first video, “Pointing South,” premiered at Juxtapoz, and the second, “Sentimental Ape,” at Geek.
Their debut album, Leftover Magic, was recorded and mastered at Singing Serpent studios in San Diego, CA., and will be released digitally by the band in January, 2013.
Remixes are forthcoming from Rafter, Xiu Xiu, and FUNERALS, as well as a serialized movie, related to the band/album, entitled Bad Dreamer. Taj Easton and Zack Wentz were also commissioned to create a soundtrack for the short Andy Mingo film Romance, based on a short story by Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), which debuted in London at the Raindance Film Festival in the fall of 2012.
