Cinema of the Mind

While listening to Dance of the Crazy Man, by Los Angeles brother duo Chapman & Brocker, I felt as if a melancholy movie was unveiling itself to me. The album literally plays like a soundtrack to an obscure indie flick that is taking place in your mind. I guess that makes sense, coming from a duo that got their start by scoring a documentary.

What is surprising, is how they were able to take their background and make the concept work within the confines of a basic song structure, while adding intelligent and compelling lyrics to the proceedings. This is definitely one of the most intriguing listens of the year and it will be interesting to see what they do for the sequel.
