Headland began in 2013 as a soundtrack to a gorgeous collection of found super8 film fragments depicting surfing and coastal culture in and around Lennox Head, Australia, in the 1970s. For this album, contemporary, High Definition slow-motion footage by award-winning filmmaker Stephen Jones (El Mar, Mi Alma) overscores each track. The film provides a discrete and personally emotive portrait of the Lennox coastline that builds upon traditional notions of landscape and seascape where each and every frame seems painted by hand. The instrumentation is lyrical, the compositions quaint and heartfelt. The combination is a personal insight into an emotional understanding of place.With an almost distinct Australian fever to its pitch, True Flowers From This Painted World ebbs and flows like the proverbial tide it is soundtracking. The players of this collective have a long history in the underground / mainstream music scene in Australia (includes members of The Scare, Wolf & Cub, Tex Perkin’s band) and with this record create cinematic / avant garde-pop similar to that created by Calexico, Friends of Dean Martinez, Boxhead Ensemble, Lullaby For The Working Class, and even Pink Floyd and Neil Young, so immersive and far-reaching is their sound.
