Light In The Attic goes to the movies with our new film imprint – cinewax

cinewax

Here at Light In The Attic Records, we’ve always been film buffs. We’ve released several movie soundtracks throughout the years; including the long out of print 1974 score to Lialeh composed by legendary drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie. We’ve also dabbled in film production with the film Wheedle’s Groove, a feature length documentary about Seattle’s vibrant soul scene of the 1960s and ‘70s. The film spent 2010 winning awards on the festival circuit, and plans are underway for a wide DVD and Digital release with theatrical dates in select cities. Now we have decided to solidify our commitment to vintage and contemporary film with the formation of our new label cinewax.

cinewax will kick off in October 2010 with the CD and Digital release of the movie soundtrack to Winter’s Bone; Winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence (The Burning Plain) in a performance that’s been called “mesmerizing” (Entertainment Weekly) and “the best American film since Hurt Locker” (Uncut). Co-starring John Hawkes (HBO’s “Deadwood”), who contributes to the soundtrack as a singer/songwriter as well. Check out the trailer and you’ll see what all the fuss is about:

Among the highlights of the Winter’s Bone Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are the old time sounds of the Ozarks translated into the 21st century by stellar vocalist Marideth Sisco. Her Ronnie Gilbert (of the Weavers) inspired vocals are absolute joy – and she’s an expert storyteller of the Ozarks region, her spoken word podcast, These Ozarks Hills, can be found online at KSMU.org and on iTunes. Although these musicians are not nationally known (yet), this soundtrack should draw attention to these regional heroes: Dennis Crider – an expert Western Swing guitar picker; Missouri bluegrass maverick - Bo Brown; claw hammer banjo picker - Van Colbert; guitarist and songwriter - Rick Reding; Missouri Ozarks fiddle master - Billy Ward to name but a few that will delight fans of “No Depression” and classic Americana music.

For those seeking more contemporary music flavors, one could no better than Dickon Hinchliffe – a founding member of the seminal English band Tindersticks in which he wrote songs, played violin, guitar and keyboards. Dickon’s other movie scores (with Tindersticks’) include director Claire Denis’ Trouble Every Day, which starred Vincent Gallo. Dickon’s brilliant score to Winter’s Bone will also be available as a Digital-only release through cinewax.
