PINEGROVE – ” Morningtime ” (Amperland, NY)

Posted: June 3, 2021 in Classic Albums, MUSIC

Pinegrove have revealed details of a new feature length film, “Amperland, NY”, and accompanying soundtrack album to be released digitally on January 15th and physically on February 26th on Rough Trade. The film, scripted from a short story by Pinegrove’s Evan Stephens Hall and directed by Kenna Hynes, was filmed at the band’s long time home in upstate New York, known as “Amperland” to Pinegrove and their fans, prior to the house being sold by the owner earlier this year.

The film, produced in conjunction with Chromoscope Pictures, and described by Evan as “fun, hopefully poignant, definitely weird ”, includes 22 songs – a full set list length of performances – spanning the band’s entire career to date. Those new renditions of old gems, recorded live in the Amperland house by Pinegrove’s Sam Skinner, will be released as a soundtrack album – also titled Amperland, NY – at the same time as the film. Evan explains the film as “threaded by a surreal, giddy narrative – reimaginings of our songbook and first-time-imaginings of Pinegrovian tall tales.” The band viewed the project as a way of honouring the house that had acted as home, recording studio and important creative haven for their last two albums: Skylight (2017) and Marigold (2020).

Today’s news comes with the release of one of the songs from the project: a new live version of “Morningtime (Amperland, NY)”, which originally appeared on Pinegrove’s 2012’s self-released debut, Meridian, and reissued on Everything so Far (2015). 

Pinegrove’s new feature film “Amperland, NY” premieres Wednesday January 13th, and its accompanying album is available Friday Jan 15th: Provided to YouTube by Beggars Group Digital Ltd./Rough Trade Records Ltd Released on: 2020-12-03
