These are the soundtrack highlights of this foul year of our Lord two thousand and thirteen.
1. The Dismemberment Plan Uncannney Valley–’Grown up,’ funky, complex and catchy.
2. Hayden Us Alone–warm and complex with flashes of Rick Springfield or Cars synths.
3. Kirin J Callinan Embracism–Raw, dirty, hilarious and uplifting. Very fresh and creative.
4. Tera Melos X’ed Out–Math rock with heart, mushrooms and serious effects pedals.
5. Zorch ZZOORRCCHH–Psychedelic synth punk; Assacre meets Lightning Bolt!
I’m really looking forward to the new Mew album in 2014. Happy New Year, perverts!
Between seeing movies and trying not to fall off my bike, I shot and edited this video of Illegal Art’s “To Do” install for the South by Southwest festival.
While working on Love in the Time of Monsters, my brother and I shot this. Meet ‘Officer’ Ted Grabowski.
I haven’t updated in a while, so I’m going to catch y’all up on some stuff from the last six months. Below is your first installment.
An unsettling behind the scenes blog entry from my upcoming feature film debut Love in the Time of Monsters, directed by Matt Jackson (relation to Peter Jackson not confirmed). This blog entry features me at my worst. Visit http://www.uncleslavkosfuntimeblog.com for more on this super sexy romantic horror film.
In honor of the 2012 Olympics, I dusted off a track from my old German-techno-inspired music duo Love Force. This is the story of one Russian Soviet athlete’s quest for golden medal in the 1982 Olympics. Enjoy, you capitalist pigs!
Check out the blog for my feature film debut Love in the Time of Monsters, directed by Matt Jackson (no relation to Peter) and written by Mike Skvarla. Besides the vicious case of poison oak and a very swollen lip, courtesy of a football to the mouth, I had a frightfully good time working with the violently talented cast and crew, which included Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th, Hatchet) and the hilarious Michael McShane (Robin Hood, Office Space, Who’s Line is it Anyway). The film will begin festivaling Fall 2013. Stay tuned!
My monster lip. This is not a prosthetic. I swear. It took about four days to go down, but it was instrumental in spawning a lovable new character, former Chicago Police Detective Ted Grabowski. More on him soon!
