EZTV – Dust in the Sky (Official Music Video)
Director / DoP / Editor = Ian Perlman

レフト・バンクやエミット・ローズ、ポウジーズをも彷彿とさせるブルックリンのジャングリィ・パワーポップ・トリオ。先月Captured Tracksからリリースされたデビュー・アルバム『Calling Out』はウッズのジャーヴィスがプロデュース。

“It wouldn’t be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman’s latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it’s not far from the truth. Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt Rhodes and Cleaners From Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he enlisted bassist Shane O’Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio’s first chance to play together was an audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn’t get the job). But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.” –Captured Tracks

Brooklyn three-piece, EZTV’s full-length debut “Calling Out” (produced by Woods’ Jarvis Taveniere) is available via Captured Tracks.

Listen To ‘The Onion,’ taken from the upcoming re-issue LP Philip Perkins’ “Drive Time,” out on November 12th via Body Double Ltd., a new Captured Tracks imprint operated by Corey Cunningham (Terry Malts) and Matt Kallman (GIRLS).

Philip Perkins (b. 1951) studied art and motion graphics with Robert Mullen and David Foster (Univ. of the Pacific and Univ. of Oregon) and was mentored by “Blue” Gene Tyranny in music composition and performance. He played in many rock, country and experimental bands. He played as a member of The Residents performance ensemble from 1979 – 1984, as well as serving as their cinematographer and lighting designer. “Drive Time” was composed and originally released in 1985 as a series of pieces composed as an alternative to early morning “drive time” AM radio, and targeted at the same audience: commuters.
