The announcement two weeks ago that The Tallest Man On Earth will release his first new album since 2012 this spring on Dead Oceans was met with open arms and eager anticipation. While the trailer is a beautiful indication of whats to come, the first single, Sagres, takes us a step further into the world of Dark Bird Is Home. Its an album that presents Kristian Mattson at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, yet also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings. It feels fresh and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, and the lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming. You should expect the loudest and proudest songs yet from The Tallest Man On Earth on album number four, but also the softest and the lowest.

The Tallest Man On Earths Dark Bird Is Home is out May 12th on Dead Oceans and available for pre-order now. All iTunes and SC Distribution pre-orders come with an instant free download of Sagres.

For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time The Man is bringing a band to the stage with him.

New Old Fashioned Trailer Aims at Fifty Shades Unusual Behavior–Pure Flix Signs as Home Entertainment Partner; Milan Records Releases Soundtrack

Burbank, CA (PRWEB) January 09, 2015

Valentines weekend at the multiplex will be Grey vs. Clay. Exploitation vs. innocence. Unusual behavior (why the MPAAs rated Fifty Shades R) vs. thoughtful behavior. And a new trailer from OLD FASHIONED, aimed squarely at Fifty Shades of Grey, hopes to influence the outcome.

This Valentines Day, says the trailer, leave the door open to two souls who take the time to discover not manipulation but healing. Sexy corporate mogul appears onscreen and a red line strikes through the words. Scenes then contrast the opposing stories: fantasy wealth and a contract to inflict pain . . . or two down-to-earth, relatable people with failed romances, now finding their way to real love.

Click here to view new trailer

It surprises me, honestlyin a culture claiming to advance female independence and equalitythat so few powerful voices raise questions about Fifty Shades, Nathan Nazario, producer of OLD FASHIONED said. Behind the rating euphemism unusual lies a crippling cultural fear or unwillingness to say any act is potentially harmful.

Rik Swartzwelder, OLD FASHIONED writer, director, and lead actor (playing Clay Walsh) questions Fifty Shades long-term effects. What happens when harmless fantasy plays out in the real worldin young lives unsure of what lasting love looks like, much less how to get it? he asks. Unquestionably, the stories our culture lifts up influence young audiences.

Its not about boycotting or creative restrictions, Swartzwelder added. Audiences merely deserve a choice, an alternative view of love and romancesomething more than objectification.

Swartzwelders script sprang from conversations with fellow singles, he says, struggling to pursue God-honoring and long-term love in a world fixed on short-term pleasure. For Swartzwelder, Valentines Day weekend comes down to a question. In your heart, he asks, what do you want to believe about true love?

In other news, Pure Flix, the studio behind the GODS NOT DEAD blockbuster, acquired OLD FASHIONED home entertainment rights. We partner with movies that stand for more than the latest bestseller, David A.R. White, Pure Flix Entertainment co-founder said. OLD FASHIONED can expect strong interest because it taps into a universal human longing.

The OLD FASHIONED soundtrack, facing a February 10 release, comes via Milan Records, a label distributed through Warner Music Group. The album features titles by Roz Bell (Feel Like Home), Josh Schicker (No Place Like You), Fred Haring (Aint Where I Used to Be), Scott Krippayne (While The Days Are Young) and many more. Kazimir Boyles original score, a blend of minimal and orchestral pieces, accompanies the characters journey of discovery.

Sample soundtrack

OLD FASHIONED features Elizabeth Ann Roberts (Criminal Minds, Southland, CSI) and Swartzwelder (THE LEAST OF THESE, WAR PRAYER).

The film also features Dorothy Silver (SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES),Tyler Hollinger (BLACK DOG, RED DOG, TRUST ME, IM A LIFEGUARD, Taxi Brooklyn, What Would You Do?), LeJon Woods (HOMEMAKERS, TOMORROW YOURE GONE), Nini Hadjis (CROSSEYED DINNER THEATER PRESENTS!, FOCUS ON ME), Maryann Nagel (INTO THE STORM, TRUE NATURE), Joseph Bonamico (Miami Vice, The Light of Day, Unsolved Mysteries), Lindsay Heath,Anne Marie Nestor (TURBINE, One Life to Live, The Onion News Network) and Angele Perez.

OLD FASHIONED is produced by Swartzwelders Skoche Films, Nazario of Motion Picture Pro Studios, Dave DeBorde and Nini Hadjis. Freestyle Releasing distributes. WTA Services LLC served as the Producer Representative in the negotiations.

A “Gift of Home” Free Phone Time for Troops Overseas from Recording Artist KIFF

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2006

Proceeds from iTunes sales of acclaimed singer-songwriter Kiff’s single “Coming Home,” about loved ones far away, will go to non-profit group Cellphones for Soldiers to help our troops call home this Christmas and into the New Year.

“You can imagine how much it must mean for these soldiers and their families just to hear ‘I love you’ from 7,000 miles away,” said Kiff. “It’s especially important now as they are facing uncertain times at home as well as abroad.”

In addition, Kiff will be setting up drop boxes in San Francisco and Los Angeles for those who wish to donate their old cell phones to this very worthy cause. The phones (not usable in Iraq) are refurbished, sold and intensely-in-demand calling cards are sent directly to troops. More info and the song “Coming Home” can be found at http://www.kiff.com and http://www.myspace.com/kiffmusic.

Kiff has reason to spread good cheer this holiday season. He’s been selling out shows on both coasts, winning media raves for his latest album “You Can’t Keep It Down” and was recently invited to perform at the San Francisco chapter’s annual GRAMMY
