Movie Soundtrack Next?

Gigwise recently conducted an interview with Jimi, who once again talks about the band’s desire to score a movie soundtrack.

“We need to shake things up by doing something…I don’t know what it’ll be,” he said.

“Scoring a film. We’re always saying that and no one seems to pick up on it, but we’d fucking love to score a film.”

When asked about their reasons for wanting to write a soundtrack, Goodwin replied: “We just always have.

“Hopefully you can hear it in your music. Everything is very filmic and we’ve often sampled many of the TV cop films of old.

“We’ve been doing that since we were in [former band] Sub Sub.”

Review Round-Up #1

Here’s a few reviews of both the single and album, which you may have missed over the last few days…

The Sunday Times (via TimesOnline.com), Single Review:

Doves: Kingdom of Rust The title track of the trio’s long-awaited new album conjures up a spaghetti western set on the Manchester moors.

Gigwise.com, Album Review:

Doves have been made for the big-time ever since they started writing their second album, ‘The Last Broadcast’. But alas, the closest they’ve come to headlining any such setting has been on support slots with U2. So you can’t say they’ve had a hard life, but all the same, they deserve more. And the most annoying thing is, most people know it.

Drowned In Sound, Single Review:

Drowned In Sound

One can’t help but feel Doves have seen what happened to Elbow last year and fancied a piece of the grown up bloke action themselves. So here is album title track ‘Kingdom of Rust’ – an ambitious, chugga-chugga steam engine of a pop tune which has Misirlou dashes, 50s throwback guitars a la Richard Hawley, and quite a bit of the Neil Hannons in its arrangement and strings, before breaking down to a semi-bluesy workout.

Doves – Kingdom Of Rust: Recorded at a converted farmhouse up in North West England, Kingdom of Rust primarily features production work from Dan Austin (Massive Attack), with two additional tracks helmed by industry vet John Leckie (XTC, Stone Roses, Radiohead’s The Bends). The single ‘Kingdom of Rust’ sees Doves return with an utter epic album of eclectic tunes that takes you on a journey somehow perfectly painting a picture of the Northwest of England in a way that only Doves can do. I can hear so many influences in this single, the likes of Blondie, Bowie and the Clash to name but a few.
