The Sea In Between

Josh Garrels

Year: 2013

Runtime: 01:22:19

Technology has made it easier and more affordable for the average person to produce and distribute his or her own content, empowering artists and eliminating old gatekeepers. This in turn has created countless opportunities for success but left artists to their own devices in achieving it. To some, this new era means the death of the art of recording and filmmaking. We disagree. To us it means that the power structure has changed; the control is in the hands of content creators. With The Sea In Between, Mason Jar Music would like to offer our own vision for a possible future of distributed media: a full audio-visual album. In essence, an LP of sights and sounds. This film represents a labor of love for us. Together with the intrepid Josh Garrels, his wife and toddlers in tow, we filmed and recorded a dozen live performances in less than a week and have woven them together with documentary vignettes exploring Josh’s hand-built career, the process of collaborating on Mayne Island, and the challenges and rewards of being an artist in the 21st century. We hope it gives the audience an opportunity to be a part of the process, and will encourage casual consumers to become active participants in the development of artists they believe in as they build careers in the face of this shifting landscape.

  • Episode 3: You Wear It Well

    London Calling The Untold Story Of British Pop Music 

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 52 min

    In the late 60s the album, formerly just a collection of singles, established itself as the ultimate musical statement, and an album sleeve art culture was born that forsook obvious band photos for graphical invention and far more ambitious visual pastures. We open this episode with the story of the fashions that accompanied British pop and the people who had the look. No other country's musicians share even a fraction of the image-fixation that has always characterised the best British pop. From The Beatles' moptop hairdos to the punks' Mohicans, the grey shirts of Joy Division to the tunic and feathers of Adam Ant, the androgynous glitz of glam rock to the Jewish Rastafarian chic of Culture Club, the sharp lines of Mod to the dungarees of acid house, Anthony Price suits to the gypsy romance of Dexy's Midnight Runners and beyond, British music always comes packaged with an ingeniously constructed image. We follow this with the story of successive waves of pioneering British album art, from the sensual psychedelia of Nigel Waymouth and Hapshash in the 60s, to the domination of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis in the 70s, with their elaborate surrealist imagery and visual puns, to the situationist shock tactics of Jamie Reid and punk, the industrial minimalism and fresh fonts of Peter Saville, Malcolm Garrett and the Manchester connection, and on to the appropriately anonymous, computer generated flyers of the rave age. This is the story of how British pop captured the world's heart through its eyes.

  • Band in Seattle - Posse Episode 306

    Posse

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 23 min

    Posse is so unbelievably cool. With dreamy soundscapes and stark, deadpan vocals, Posse makes perfect rainy day music. They write the kind of songs that would honestly fit well over some self-effacing John Cusack monologue. Their sound is signature Seattle, but not pretentious in the slightest. With lyrics so layered and melodies so subtle, Posse’s songs take up a lot of real estate in your brain and refuse to leave.

    Runtime: 23 min

    There’s a song that Evening Bell plays, called “Dust Storm,” which says way more about their music than anything else. When one hears Evening Bell, it’s hard not to picture a tumble weed skimming around a desert somewhere in Tucson circa whenever John Wayne was a movie star. It’s vintage Americana at its finest, but with a dark and psychedelic twist – music fit for a ghost town overtaken by Saguaro cacti, and perhaps cows.

After releasing two critically acclaimed yet relatively unknown albums - 2004's Mander Salis and 2007's Cotton Teeth - the five members of The Snake The Cross The Crown found themselves spread across the country; some members going back to school, others holding odd jobs to pay the bills. Unable to relentlessly tour and promote, yet unwilling to let go of their passion for creating music together, The Snake The Cross The Crown were at a major turning point for themselves as a band, and as individuals
