Philly expat, Brian Christinzio (Sharon Van Etten, War On Drugs) released How To Die in the North earlier this year to critical praise. It shares some sonic DNA with 70’s iconoclast, Skip Spence and his record, OAR. Folky acoustic intro with a chorus nod to Jim Ford Harlan County boogie rock make up the meat and bones of “Grim Cinema.” Toss in a wicked little synth guitar breakdown at the mid point and you’ve got a clever hodgepodge of a tight pop song. But for those unfamiliar, think Beck meets Tame Impala with a dash of Brian Wilson-style vocal arrangements. The video is a perfect mirror for the song comprised of found footage and lots of swinging tassels. Yay tassels!
