I'm so happy we're getting to feature The Black Angels this month. All of us here at Transistor Six have been fans of the Austin based Psych-Rock band for a long time. When we had the chance of proposing a visual concept to the band we knew we wanted to do something totally different and 3-D was the way we wanted to go.
Transistor Six is all about the love of analog, but more importantly, we have a love for nostalgic elements of the past like 3-D. Lucky for us two major stars aligned to make this happen.
First, The Black Angels were in the last days of rehearsal for their upcoming 'Indigo Meadow' tour and they gave us a window of time to come in and shoot.
Second, our friends in Germany at Trivido happen to be in town when we were looking make this. For those that don't know, Trivido is an amazing 3D Internet Video platform for streaming and viewing 3-D video on the web and no one does it better in our opinion.
Wanted to also mention the beautiful gatefold vinyl edition of Indigo Meadow which comes with a full color art & lyric book inside. The sound quality is superior and overall they did a great job at putting together a fantastic piece of sonic and visual art. You really should go over to your local record store and treat yourself to one of you still have a record store.
Click on the questionmark "?" at the bottom-right of the player and select your prefered
output mode for 3D or choose 2D to watch normally.
Since we really had just one day to make this video work, we didn't get a chance to do a proper Lomo shoot, so in between takes I captured these 5 portraits while the band were in between songs. With no time to think about it, I walked up to each of the members, and kindly asked them to stare into the ring flash attached to my Diana F+. I also managed to pull off one Pop9 camera shot that had a texture left from my visit to Venice beach.
