We’re excited to announce the return of Roadburn Cinema in the V39 basement from Thursday, April 12 to Saturday, April 14th. This year’s selections will include Blood, Sweat + Vinyl: DIY in the 21st Century.
From 2005 to 2010, Director Kenneth Thomas documented the live shows and musicians on 3 artist-driven record labels: Hydra Head Records, Neurot Recordings, and Constellation. Each of these labels combines hard-to-define, heavy music with a visual aesthetic that has enraptured worldwide fans, without the need for radio or corporate media outlets.
Those 5 years of footage and interviews have been released as the documentary, Blood, Sweat + Vinyl: DIY in the 21st Century, and the director is thrilled to have it screened at Roadburn 2012. “We can think of no better way to experience this film than in the midst of the same spirit, crowds and music that inspired it.”
The 90 minute film features: Neurosis, Isis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt. Zion, Pelican, Jesu, Cave In, Oxbow, A Storm of Light, Evangelista, Do Make Say Think, and others. Additional footage presents interviews with the bands, label heads, and artists that create the album covers, posters, and visual aesthetic that fans value as much as the music itself.
