album notes::Film School to release Hideout next month

Film School are back with a new line up, a new album Hideout due out on Beggars Banquet on September 11, and new US TOUR DATES. “Hideout” was written largely in Greg Bertens’ Los Angeles apartment, recorded in both LA and San Francisco studios with engineer Dan Long, mixed by Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Band of Horses, the Shins, Stephen Malkmus), and produced by Bertens. Hideout builds on the band’s pretty, richly textured sound by emphasizing powerful rhythms and beautiful melodies that take the songwriting to a new level. Bertens signature vocal delivery shows more breadth on this release, and evokes a plaintive longing that is magnified by the addition of female voices, courtesy of bassist Lorelei Plotcyzk, and guest vocalists Tracy Uba (Timonium) and Leah Piehl. Other guest musicians loaning their talents to the album are Colm O’Ciosoig and Paul Wilson.
