“The quintet is steeped in fractured, reverb-heavy guitar work à la ’90s indie-rock bands such as Sebadoh and Pavement … and lyrics with timeless, universal appeal.” —Star Tribune
Bounding between punchy power pop and dreamy low-fi, Clara Salyer (Total Babe) joins forces with Howard Hamilton, Dylan Ritchie, Tim Leick, and Emily Lazear for a modern take on new pop for now people. Bristling with talent, this band is fuzzed out, tuned in, and ready to rip with crunchy guitar, bouncy beats, and shimmering melodies.

This comic fable stars the beloved stone-faced clown Toto as an Italian everyman on an adventure with his good-natured but empty-headed son. With a wisecracking crow as a counterpoint, the human travelers progress down the road of life, two delightful innocents caught, like many Italians in 1964, between the church and Marxism. 1964, video, in Italian with English subtitles, 88 minutes.
