Square People: Mysteries and Secrets Unzipped

It’s debatable whether or not the band Square People (or, for that matter, the individual members contained within) are indeed lazy and/or nervous. Sometimes they might be, other times not. Their latest release – a movie – fits perfectly within that continuum. Is it lazy or assiduous? Is the movie itself nervous or rather forthcoming? Yes. Heed it. They heed it. They heed.

“Mysteries and Secrets Unzipped” debuted at the Noa-Noa house last night, and there were moments of laughter, confusion, sensory-overload, and all smiles. I feel confident in saying this movie brought joy.  Someone artificially flavored the popcorn the flavor of lime. This is either a command or an anecdote.  We have decided, then, to understand the fledgling star in the press, especially when the gold-laden runs of distorted ideas actually arrive at some arrival point that they were forever returning to arrive at. Square People the band and Square People the movie do that. You can watch the movie below and download the songs at Square People’s bandcamp <click!>

The Limited Edition cassette of “The Dream Man” (BT009) is in the store and the tunes are yours to live. Listen to the single “Ya-Ya” below. The music video for Cell Phone, shot by Jake Smith and edited by Drew Maynard (click!), is the ride you’ve been waiting for. The treats in this one singular moment are irreplaceable and inexplainable. Remember: the tapes contain a clue to a special Blacktooth Records Sweepstakes Prize! Jake Smith shot and edited the behind-the-scenes footage as well.
TV John – Ya-Ya by BlackToothMunch

 

TV John came from Washington D.C. to Nashville in a swirl of coupons, melodic, and lyrical ideas and crashed into the Blacktooth Camp for one insane collaboration. Ben Trimble arranged the terms and agreements after taking an interest in exploring the nexus of creativity and originality. TV John cooked us ribs and conveyed his song-dreams to us, we arranged the new tunes, learned a few of his preexisting hits (“Party Animal“, “Elivs’s Brain” etc.), and played one hell of a show at The Zombie Shop. We are thankful to have shared the world-unto-itself that is TV John Langworthy’s. We won’t soon forget it. He was a “party animal” and hopefully, after hearing these new songs, you will be also.

Musicians on the tracks (in alphabetical order): Ben Trimble (Bass, Electric Guitar, Drums), Chris Murray (Saxophone), Mitch Jones (Organ, Keys), Ricardo Alessio (Piano, Bass, Electric Guitar, Synths), Richard Harper (Drums, Bass), Sean Thompson (Lead Electric Guitar).

BGVs: Brittany Painter Shaw, Lilly Lomein, Liz Thielemann, Josh Harper, Kim McCulla.
