I already mentioned that I'll check out "Both Sides of the Sky" and the Dr. Octagon reunion (which I actually don't see on this list) even though my expectations aren't very high for either but aside from those, nothing really grabs my interest. I've basically given up on Of Montreal at this point (last album I heard was "Sylvianbriar" which was pretty good but I've generally not been into anything post-"Sunlandic Twins"). Ditto with Belle & Sebastian (was never much of a fan in the first place and basically just listen to "Life Pursuit" and "Feeling Sinister" these days).
Haha there's a group called "Screaming Females". Sounds like something from a lame SNL skit. AND a band called "I'm With Her"?! Yeesh.
"It sort of makes sense though because I'm pretty sure it's a lot easier to make a listenable album than to make a watchable movie. With music so long as you stay within certain guidelines you can end up with something that's going to register to your ears as at least listenable. With films though it's more of a balancing act. One bad performance or plot point that doesn't work can ruin the whole thing."
Good point. During the relatively limited time I spent studying and shooting film in high school, I gained more respect for filmmakers after getting some first-hand experience with all the elements that need to be juggled successfully while making a movie, many of which you have very little control over. I might even venture to say that for this reason, out of all artistic mediums, film is probably the most difficult to master.
