The Cinematics are a four piece from Glasgow, Scotland. With swirling guitars and a pulsating rhythm section, they create a dark, yet hopeful sound.

Here, Scott and Larry give a closer look and divulge into the process of making the record.
1. How would you describe the new record compared to the last?
Scott: The songs are more lyric-based and it overall sound is much raw and, we feel, more honest than that of Strange Education.
2. Was there a specific sound you were looking to create with this record?

Joel Petersen, aka Broken Spindles, is one fifth of The Faint. Broken Spindles was originally started as a favour for a friend, who had requested instrumental music for a video project. Now with five albums and a second part to the last album Kiss/Kick, entitled Kiss/Kick Addendum, here Joel shares some insight into his project - Broken Spindles.
