Sam Prekop

Sam Prekop of The Sea and Cake has written several songs for a film titled PAVILION, the debut feature by director Tim Sutton (who had previously worked with Prekop on the video for The Sea and Cake’s “Weekend”). We shared a couple songs, “The Eve” and “Arizona,” back in March for the film’s SXSW premiere, but now PAVILION is having its New York premiere this Thursday at BAM, and we have been graciously asked to premiere the film’s title theme. It’s certainly short, but it’s wavering keyboard, sighing vocals, and stretched-out harmonies would seem to perfectly complement the film’s “mesmerizing imagery of hot summer bike rides and cool lakebound dives.” Check out the track here:

Like the SXSW premiere, the screening this Thursday will be followed by a performance from Sam Prekop and Archer Preweitt, who will be playing tracks from the soundtrack and select Sea and Cake songs. There will also be a Q&A with Tim Sutton. It all starts at 7 PM, as part of the BAMcinemaFest. Plan your life accordingly. Purchase tickets here, and check out the film’s trailer here:

CHOCOLATE GRINDER is our audio/visual section, with an emphasis on the lesser heard and lesser known. We aim to dig deep, but we’ll post any song or video we find interesting, big or small.
