CD of the Month: Project Film

CD of the Month: Project Film

Sam McAllister is an ambitious young musician and business owner. As the founder of Tandem Shop he has released four albums over the last two years including albums by Mr. Bear and Honest Engines. The label releases are thoughtful and well-produced, and his latest release just happens to be his own. When he partners musically with his high school friend Megan Frestedt the duo Project Film emerges. The duos debut album called Chicago finds the duo presenting an exercise in indie pop. At times the sound is soft and sweet ("Sun"), and at others bouncy and fun ("Cut Outs"). The album was recorded in McAllisters studio apart in the Fall and Winter of 2009, and documents the two worlds that they have existed in. The album contrasts growing up in Minneapolis and relocating to Chicago. Chicago is a beautifully simple and charming duo for a musician and producer that plans to do big things here in Chicago.

Project Film released Chicago on November 9th.
