The American composer and producer will release an album for Smalltown Supersound in June.
Brian Reitzell will release a solo LP on Smalltown Supersound on June 3rd.
The LA-based producer is probably best known for his film work—he's acted as the music supervisor for Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant movies, as well as a handful of TV series including Hannibal. He's also worked as the drummer for Redd Kross and Air at one time or another, and has written scores with Oneohtrix Point Never.
Auto Music is the composer's first full-fledged solo release, birthed from recordings that were originally meant to test out new ideas and sounds in his studio. In typical fashion, each song is attached to a particular visual cue or scene, as Reitzell watched DVDs in his studio while composing the music. The label calls Auto Music "the ultimate driving album," and goes on to say that it evokes "coasting along California's freeways."
"I wanted to make music that felt like my drive from my house to my studio," says Reitzell. "I liked the structure of the drive: never repeating, unless I forgot something at home and had to go back. It was sort of like 'event music' where little things come into view and then another one takes its place as you drive past." The LP also has a number of guest musicians, including My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields, who plays organ on "Last Summer," which you can stream below.
