We Score, They Release on DVD

Doesn’t come as trippingly to the tongue as the title of our soundtrack compilation, but that doesn’t make it any less accurate.  Two motion pictures that we composed scores for have just come out on DVD.

The Toe Tactic is written and directed by Georgia’s sister Emily.  (We’ve scored a whole bunch of her short subjects, some of which can be found on Genius + Love = Yo La Tengo.)  Combining animation and live action in a way I guarantee you haven’t seen before, it has a dizzylingly amazing cast, including Andrea Martin, Eli Wallach, John Sayles, Jon Glaser, Mary Kay Place, Eugene Mirman, Daniel London, Jane Lynch, David Cross, Don Byron, Kevin Corrigan, Robyn Hitchcock and Jon Benjamin, as well as walk-ons by Georgia, James and me.  There’s a ton of our music in it, almost none of it available elsewhere.  For more information, click here.

In addition, Adventureland just came out.  If you’re one of the people that fell for Miramax’s marketing campaign and let this one slip by because you’re over the age of 15 and/or 90 minutes of guys getting socked in the nads isn’t your thing, let us be the first to tell you that Adventureland isn’t like that at all.  It’s smart and funny and heartfelt, with just the right amount of nut-punching.  Nevertheless, no link.  Let Disney sell their own damn picture.
