Breaking Upwards

Far more influential ink than mine has been spilled over Daryl, Zoe, & Peter’s movie Breaking Upwards, so I will save the ‘wax poetic’ for another occasion.  Instead, I’m just going to tell you to see it: See this movie.

After a successful opening weekend at the IFC Theater in NYC, their run has been extended to through Sunday, April 11th.  They open in Los Angeles on Friday, and if things go well, IFC might consider a nation-wide release.

If you don’t live in either of those cities, they’ve got you covered as well.  You can watch it home through your cable provider’s On Demand menu.  How bout that?

the wind-up | You Are A Beautiful Thing

Our friends, the wind-up, have been gracing NYC stages for the last year, steadily building momentum towards the release of their debut album, You Are a Beautiful Thing (2010).

The album is a treat. Energetic, original, fun, and liberally adorned with magnetic hooks thoughtfully layered by engineer/producer (and bassist) Matt Bernstein. The deep and impressive recording is a testament to the blood, sweat, and tears poured into it. No one could ever guess that the bulk of the work came out of a home studio featuring a closet for an isolation booth. By splurging on a Manley Labs mic pre, and a kickass mastering session at The Lodge, the wind-up delivered an exceptional record for a fraction of what it would have cost a less resourceful, less talented band. Kudos.

Although the band has encouraged fans to rip, burn, and share their album with others, I’d rather point you in the direction of their page on Bandcamp where you grab it for free or kick them a few bucks to support a promising young band when they need it the most.

They’re good friends and lot of fun to gig with so you’ll definitely hear more about them here on For more information and direct updates, you should check out their website. Let us know what you think in the comments, and we’ll be sure to pass it along.
