New Album From Brian Reitzell (Redd Kross) Is Out Now

The guy has done soundtracks and he's in Redd Kross but now Brian Reitzell is putting out a solo album...which sounds like a soundtrack to a film that needs to be made.

Auto Music is out now on Smalltown Supersound and it's worth your attention and money.

Enlisting help from Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) and Roger Manning Jr. (Jellyfish, etc.), Reitzell has created a collection of warm, sinister, and expansive soundscapes. These tracks are the perfect accompaniments to a long drive at night, or a stroll through a bustling urban city at dawn. Nods in the direction of Japanese cinema ("Ozu") give hints that this is sort of a soundtrack but it's also near-ambient music that envelops a listener.

Still, it's not all mellow as "Oskar" is pretty noisy and "Ozu Choral" is a bit spooky.

Stream "Last Summer" below and then head over to Brian Reitzell's official Facebook page for more details on Auto Music.
