Hello, San Francisco (16mm) from Richard Edwards on Vimeo.

Margot & The Nuclear So and Sos have taken it back to the basics with Slingshot to Heaven, their forthcoming fifth studio album. Self-produced and recorded on two-inch tape in the band’s own studio, it’s an LP that reflects the band’s evolution without losing their signature whimsical rock sound.

And the band’s nod to analog isn’t limited to audio: an alternate version of the album, Tell Me More About Evil, was recorded in a collection of stripped-down live performances on 10 rolls of 16mm film. Watch the video for album track “Hello, San Francisco” in the player above. Slingshot To Heaven is set for release on April 22 via Mariel Recording Company. The 45-minute film is available via DVD on the band’s website, and a vinyl release for the live soundtrack is in the works.
