Friends of Dean Martinez | A Place in the Sun
I loved them at SXSW last year, I can't believe it took ten months to search Rhapsody for Friends of Dean Martinez (Formerly Friends of Dean Martin until lawyers sent the cease and desist). The poetic, sometimes grotesque beauty of an early 20th-Century German expressionist film like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari comes to life in the 1926 silent screen classic's cardboard sets and painted shadows. Against this stark, impressionistic background, a nightmarish tale of madness spreads like an ever-widening pool of black ink that eventually engulfs the audience in its dark spell. A Place in the Sun, the fourth full-length from this Austin band, may profess to dwell in the sunlight, but rest assured, said orb rises and sets in the land of the midnight sun. FoDM has four albums in Rhapsody, get involved today! - Raoul Hernandez
