This is De Zoete's third album, produced by Les Cooper (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies) and includes 11 songs that are intricately woven together to evoke a sort of thematic soundtrack.

"My intention with this album was to make a collection of songs that were direct and succinct enough to be the soundtrack for a short film; songs that have a tight focus, lots of visual imagery, and easily discernible characters, plot, and context," the Hamilton singer/songwriter explains.

Recorded over 10 days, the title track is inspired by his fascination watching old, homemade videos and he translates these oddities into song material. There are traces of David Usher in the voice but much of what he does is original. Check out a selection of his songs here; and while you're at it, have a look at this video shot by/for Southern Souls.
