The Independent Culture

New soundtracks for avant-garde films curated by the Cinematics and featuring themselves and guests Austin Peralta, Dorian Concept & Tom Chant, and Grey Reverend.

The album is uneven, but "Necrology" and the marvellous widescreen vistas of the epic closer "Manhatta" (the title of a cinematic short by Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand) are dizzyingly good. They perform the programme at the Barbican (where it originated last year) on 30 June.
