Tindersticks announce S.F. gig details – 2nd May 2011

Tindersticks will be playing The Castro Theatre as a special event at the San Francisco International Film Festival on 2 May!

Tickets are on sale from http://www.sffs.org/tickets

Monday, May 2, 8:30 pm Castro Theatre, 429 Castro Street. $25 members; $30 general public.

more details here:


“For this special event, fellow Tindersticks members David Boulter, Neil Fraser, Dan KcKinna and Earl Harvin join Staples, augmented by additional musicians on strings and brass. The full ensemble will do dramatic justice to Denis’s visionary cinema through gorgeously dark-hued music that blends subtle guitar strumming and delicate violin arpeggios with otherworldly percussion and atmospheric washes of symphonic color over which Staples croons in his inimitable baritone. “Working with Claire makes us shift our vision,” Staples has said. “We come out the other end of it and we always feel kind of changed.””

Out 26 April 2011:

Claire Denis Film Scores 1996-2009
CST077   5xCD / 5×180gLP / DL

This is an early warning systems announcement.

We are thrilled to be releasing a very special box set compiling all of the soundtracks that members of Tindersticks have created for the films of French director Claire Denis over the past 15 years.  This set will include six soundtracks in all (two of which are in the 23:00 range and will appear together on a single CD and on each side of an LP); four of the soundtracks are previously unreleased, including the score for her most recent and hugely acclaimed White Material (which has also received Criterion treatment).

The set will be housed in a custom window-cut slipcase made from deluxe black uncoated 18pt cardstock with foil embossing – as seen in the image above, sleeve cover images will shine through the window cut when inserted in the package.  Also included is a 48pp perfect-bound booklet with extensive colour plates of film stills and an essay (in English and in French translation) by renowned music writer Michael Hill (who has also contributed liner notes for collections by Lou Reed, Sam Cooke, The Replacements and others).

Audio preview and special pre-order offer will be available to newsletter subscribers next week – sign up to get the inside scoop.
