Sundance 2013, Chock Full of Fervor
The Sundance Film Festival kicks off today in Park City, UT..and is chock full of Fervor Vintage Masters.
Four official selections that will be featured this weekend at the critically acclaimed independent fest contain authentic recordings of yesteryear, plucked from the Fervor vaults.
We Are What We Are, the US remake of the Mexican horror film “Somos lo que Hay” includes two cuts from the Fervor Records release Vintage Country, 1957-1969. “I’ll Pretend” (Glen Morris) and Tommy Strange’s “It Was Me That Made Her Bad”. The film also has a choice pick from the archives, Eddie Eldon’s “A Child Alone”.
A Single Shot, a gritty drama with William H. Macy, also grabbed tracks from the Vintage Country disc. Two more from Tommy Strange (“My Tears Run Backwards” and “One More Time”), as well as the lonely classic “A Shade Of Difference” by the late great Bozo Darnell.
The Spectacular Now, a film adaptation of the Tim Tharp novel, includes a couple unreleased 70’s rock songs from the archives. The Tennessee River Crooks’ “Farming Man” and Just Water’s “The Riff” made it into this highly anticipated indie release.
And finally, Prince Avalanche, starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, is slated to premiere at Sundance too..and this one has a 1981 track from Phoenix’s own Loosely Tight, the track is “Loud And Restless”, which can be found on the Fervor Records release The Best of Loosely Tight.
This is the second year in a row that Fervor has had cuts in numerous official Sundance selections, and hopefully won’t be the last.
