Movietone - The Sand And The Stars
Movietone's fourth album, The Sand And The Stars, released in 2003, draws explicit influence from the shoreline, and was in-part recorded on a beach at the very tip of Cornwall, looking out across the Atlantic.
Intended to sound like "a jazz record being played across the bay," the core-band of Kate Wright, Rachel Brook (Flying Saucer Attack), Matt Jones (Crescent), Sam Jones (Crescent, The Balky Mule) and Chris Cole (Manyfingers) were joined on several songs by other Bristol musicians Lisa Brook (Headfall), George McKenzie (Headfall), Michal William (Headfall), Tom Cops (My Two Toms), John Coe and Clare Ring.
The Sand And The Stars seems to pick up where previous album, 2000's The Blossom Filled Streets left off, expanding their sound further, and leaning more into a gentle melodic hopefulness and pop sensibility.
