Music Is The Wine
Seventeen Evergreen Release a new ep, Music Is The Wine on October 22nd 2007 through Lucky Number.
Seventeen Evergreen's chief-protagonists Caleb Pate and Nephi Evans, are both singers, multi-instrumentalists, & most importantly, storytellers of imagination and hyper-reality. 'Music is the wine, to fill my cup of sadness, helping to forget a love electrocuted', is the simple eloquent message offered here, emphasizing the emotionally-healing quality that music holds for so many of us. 'The songs of love that live, beyond the instruments, behind your eyes and growing, gradually pull...[you]...in', to a stronger place, of course! It's a sexy place too, adopting 'Moon Safari's sultriness as if played by an acutely amorous band of space-funkers. This is true to The Independent's reading of Seventeen Evergreen's album, its' '...other-worldliness recalls Midlake only with the time-machine set for the future rather than the past.'
Seventeen Evergreen's vision goes way beyond the sonic of course. Following their association with supreme video-groundbreakers Encyclopedia Pictura the band are now currently in LA directing their own storyboard. As lead singer Caleb puts it he expects them to be 'waylaid by the bling-fest, but reminded that life is magic.' The result will surely extend the picture book beauty of their previous promo activity, including gravity-defying romps in Marin County, & somersaults in space whilst performing!
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
