Imagine yourself as a top-tier international double agent,
making your entrance to a billionaires' yacht party o the coast
of the Mediterranean by parachuting in from a remote
controlled helicopter. With a tranquilizer rie in your left hand
and a dry martini in your right, you take out security as you land
on the upper deck, all without spilling a single drop. This album
would be your soundtrack.
35mm is a band that is reconstructing the 50-60's lounge music
genre with a sultry and polished style, inuenced by bossa nova,
tango, jazz, surf music, space-age pop, and spy-movie
soundtracks. They have taken their love for such composers as
Dick Hyman, Henry Mancini and Juan Garcia Esquivel, and
produced an original album worthy of any Aston-Martin 'convertible'
(between road racer and submarine, of course) sound system.
Fumihito and Claude Nine are building a live scene in Austin Texas
around the music of 35mm, and the response has been strong. as an
album that ts no particular genre, the title is a perfect addition to the
already eclectic Ropeadope catalog. As Fumihito Sugawara’s fourth
release on Ropeadope, 35mm continues the story of his restless
musical journey. Retro lounge style on top of modern beats, a touch of
surf guitar, and some latin rhythm round out this relentlessly cool record.
