AERO FLYNN / 03.03.15

Grab a track from the highly anticipated Aero Flynn debut album right here. Aero Flynn is a Justin Vernon (Bon Iver, Volcano Choir) produced, Josh Scott (Amateur Love) project that will release their self titled debut on March 3, via Ooh La La Records. Read what one of my favorite songwriters, Christopher Porterfield of Field Report, has to say about Aero Flynn…

       "And then the wind changed again, this time carrying a fire. Word got out that Josh was heading into the studio recording a new batch of songs under the name Aero Flynn. He was back in school. He was writing a screenplay. He was blazing, and the heat around him was unavoidable.

Vern signed on as record producer and assembled a dazzling cast of musicians: Bon Iver players Mike Noyce, Sean Carey, Rob Moose and CJ Camerieri; guitarist Matt Sweeney; pedal steeler Ben Lester; Solid Gold’s Adam Hurlburt. The sessions went very well. Over the course of a year, the Aero Flynn record was finished.

Josh’s new songs coalesced into an incredible album. It is deeply personal and as cold as space on your bare skin. It club-bangs; it psych-jams; it cathedral-shivers. The album sounds like it could have been made by someone from a bleak future age, who grew up on lunar outpost listening to Robert Wyatt and Thom Yorke Earth-tapes. We are huddled around the radio, listening to someone whisper with canned air.

Inherent Vice (2014)

More so than usual, I was looking forward to see the newest movie by Paul Thomas Anderson. I was excited about the more commercial 70s groovy setting of Inherent Vice, something that first came to life, so to say, in the trailers directed (just like the ones for 2012’s The Master) by Anderson himself. The stoner private investigator trying to solve a mysterious kidnapping premise sounded great too, perhaps it could be a movie that was easier to swallow than The Master.

While this did turn out to be case for the warm and often psychedelic production design, set design and costume design (much more welcome than the hard whites and blues of The Master), the plot, based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Thomas Pynchon, is often even harder to put together at the spot than that of its predecessor. Joaquin Phoenix plays the part of stoner private investigator Doc Sportello, who has been assigned by his ex-girlfriend, whom he is not quite over yet after not seeing her for over a year, to look into this scheme to kidnap her new real estate hot-shot boyfriend Mickey Wolfmann (Eric Roberts). Soon after starting the investigation, Doc finds himself involved in a mysterious case that has to do with neo-Nazis, the best lawyer in recent cinematic history (Benicio Del Toro as Sauncho Smilax, Esq), pussy bars, a whole lot of heroin, a dental office for junkies, mysterious dopers and the FBI, for starters only. Unlike the trailer of the movie suggested, his quest is not as fast cut and wacky as expected. It is of a more relaxed pace.

Inherent Vice is a movie that is fun to watch after consuming some of the drugs that Doc likes to do. The whole atmosphere of the movie breathes drugs and psychedelics, from cinematography and editing to the score of Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood; it all adds up to have a carefree evening with a movie. What could prove to be problematic though is the difficult plot Anderson presents us with. Stoners might have issues to make sense of it, and I reckon many sober people might as well, yet it becomes apparent that Anderson makes things hard on purpose, just so to welcome us to just enjoy the overall groovy vibe of the movie. The dialogue often drowns out in background noise or is softly spoken, characters we hardly get to see are mentioned in very quick succession and there is hardly any time to take a breather in between some of the intense conversations; just like Doc, we find everything very puzzling.

The cool and groovy vibe is what stuck with me though. The adventures Doc gets himself in are funny and just a great joy to watch. Anderson manages to engage his audience: Inherent Vice is a much more stable movie than the slightly out-of-balance The Master, yet also demands multiple viewings
