matthew carefully "walks with purpose" – brunswick soundtrack

Posted by gregor on Monday, December 5th, 2011

my man matthew loiacono or as he is known to the world now, matthew carefully has just released a soundtrack to a movie entitled, brunswick. if you have been a visitor of captains dead for a significant amount of time then you should be familiar with matthew and his work with his old band, the kamikaze hearts and of course his solo work which i have written about in the past. the soundtrack is 4 years in the making and while the documentary revolves around a regional land owners/farmers in ny, its definitely a topic that will one day affect us all. if you have lived anywhere long enough, you’ve probably seen farmland converted to subdivision, shopping malls, etc. this doc revolves around the quandry that i am sure these farmers are faced with as they grow older, ready to retire, no one to take it over and then faced with the proposal of mounds of money to sell their land. ive seen it first hand in chicagoland, and while it’s progress, its depressing.

i watched the trailer, and then listened to the whole thing again and i can see this fitting in just wonderfully with the tone of the film. there’s moments of hope, or maybe its just memories of past joy, but either way i can only imagine that it does the topic justice. just taking it as a record, and leaving the doc out of it, its a great piece of work. when i do my top 20 of the year, this is definitely gonna be on it.

you can buy the cd via his bandcamp site which features 5 songs not on the digital release, but you can also download via there and other digital retailers.

this was from the cd release party from the other night, or actually maybe last night which featured bob from the kamikaze hearts helping out.
