TINDERSTICKS, 13 July, 10:30pm
- Extra Concert: 13 July, 8:00pm
The English band will present "The Waiting Room" in a film-concert with several short films that illustrate the tracks from the new album. In the second part of the show, the band will also perform songs that celebrate 25 years of Tindersticks. It is an absolute premiere in Portugal.
Published earlier this year, "The Waiting Room" is the tenth studio album by Tindersticks and features collaborations by Beth Jehnny, lead singer of the Savages; a virtual duet with Lhasa De Sela, the singer who died in 2010; and arrangements by Julian Siegel. This new work is accompanied by an ambitious audiovisual project that explores the relationship between Tindersticks and cinema: several directors were invited to create short films that visually illustrate each of the 11 tracks on the album. These interpretations were made by filmmakers as Christoph Girardet, Joe King and Rosie Pedlow - that have also presented films in past editions of the festival - Pierre Vinour, Claire Denis, Gregorio Graziosi, Richard Dumas and the Brazilian Gabriel Sanna, amongst others. Some of the videos are signed by Stuart A. Staples, lead singer of the band.
The project, produced by the Blogotheque and the record label Lucky Dog, is the result of a partnership with the Festival International du Court Métrage à Clermont-Ferrand, where the show was first presented.
Curtas Vila do Conde will also present film-concerts by Jay-Jay Johanson, The Legendary Tigerman and The Greg Foat Group.
