Sorry here, folks, we've been seriously delinquent on posting to the Sound Effects blog (it's a busy time of year, natch) -- but a couple things of note.
First, on July 26, Sound Team (below) -- another heavily-hyped upstart indie group (see CYHSY) -- are in Cambridge. Go.
Second, caught the new Gram Parsons documentary last night. It's called "Fallen Angel," and it's getting released with the Parsons' "Complete Reprise Sessions" (If you own "G.P." and "Grievous Angel" already, you should still check this out. The quality is sharp). The whole thing is meticulously researched, and there is some great material here (although a smattering of hokey effects dulls the edge -- make sure to catch the flames consuming Gram's body. Ouch). The best? The interview with photographer Dominique Tarle, who shot Parsons and the Stones together in France.
The photos are big and expressive and beautiful (see a sample shot below), and director Gandulf Hennig spends a lot of well-used time exploring Keith Richards' influence on Parsons.
