The Waiting Room music and film project is now live. The idea was created in conjunction with the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and its chief organiser, Calmin Borel, whose vast knowledge of short film coupled with Tindersticks’ distinct aesthetic sensibilities became a strong foundation for the concept. The album has been brilliantly received with Guardian describing Tindersticks as ‘… a band shapeshifting with sophistication’…
The band line up includes Stuart A. Staples, David Boulter, Neil Fraser, Dan McKinna and Earl Harvin with guest vocals provided by Jehnny Beth of Savages and a warm duet with Lhasa De Sela.
Studio Moe topped and tailed the film and created the DVD menu, while David Reeve created the film for Planting Holes.
