Student Film - Generator, Operator, Destroyer

icked gospel with a backbeat and carnival organ undulation that would set a scene of some backwoods snake-handling.

Starkly different are a pair of barely-over-a-minute-long instrumental tracks: the saxophone-laden "Itty Bitty Deluxe" and the droning, atmospheric "Outclassed & Embarrassed." The latter seems out of place, but is sonically among the most interesting tracks on the disc.

"Generator" has operators who know what they're doing, even if it means destroying what fans have found familiar. It's not quite clear what movie Student Film is making, but the band definitely has a vision and the tools to point the lens anywhere it wants.

The 11-song album will be released on vinyl and as a digital download in May or June, Rice said in an interview last week. Student Film will perform at 12:50 p.m. April 25 at the Norman Music Festival's Main Stage, in the 100 block of West Main Street."?Joe Wertz
