Retailers: iTunes, eMusic, Amazon


smith. includes the soundtracks for two short films by ANALOG member Gordon Smith. The music for Burgle was recorded in two sessions. In the first, a Rhodes/bass/drums trio laid down the soul jazz grooves of each track live. In the second, Joe Drew overdubbed all the horn parts. The Ramsey Lewis-style tunes compliment the short heist film Smith crafted while in school at USC.


The pulsing electro trip of Dreamreader Blues accompanies the flight of the heroine of Smith’s film by the same name. She’s a low level functionary in a future where dreams are cataloged and monitored. Trapped in a dream of her own, she tries to escape the always inescapable Fate.
