New School of Seven Bells Single Released - Free MP3

School of Seven Bells
School of Seven Bells just released "The Night," the first single from their forthcoming third album, Ghostory. The album features SVIIB's signature dreampop influenced by ‘80s pop, shoegaze, and ambient electronic music. But it's also kind of a concept album in that it tells the story of a young girl named Lafaye and the ghosts that surround her life.

CBS News recently spoke with Amoeba co-owner Marc Weinstein at Amoeba San Francisco about the origins of Amoeba, wanting to build the ultimate independent record store, and our plans for the future. It's a pretty nifty piece about Amoeba. Unfortunately, the video isn't embeddable, but you can watch it here.

Short Documentary About Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, November 30, 2011 06:36pm | Post a Comment
Dylan Neal, a student of the University of Texas Semester in LA Program, made a short documentary about Amoeba Hollywood as a submission for the 10 Under 10 Film Festival in Texas. The festival was created by Radio-Television-Film professor Ellen Spiro to feature short documentary and experimental films made by UT students. Here's the tricky part: the films must be under 10 minutes long and made for under $10.

The documentary was shot over several days in September and October 2011, and captures Amoeba moments like our in-store with Touareg band Tinariwen and our Halloween festivities, as well as interviews with staff and regular customers. I particularly loved Amoebite Cody in full costume (including face paint) being interviewed on camera with no reference to his appearance or explanation about it being Halloween. But, hey, you never know what you're going to find when you walk into Amoeba!
