First heard of Shadow on Stars through a mixtape from Pigeons and Planes called The Night Before. Know very little about the band, but they have this weird indie punk pop sound to them. Really weird, but listenable. Looked it up. Listenable is actually a word.
You don’t have to be a fan of the Portal games or even a gaming fan period to enjoy this 7 minutes of awesomeness. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, the film features Danielle Rayne who plays “Chell”. There aren’t any other major characters in the short film, but one is all that is needed to make it awesome. It’s rare to see a movie based off a video game do good, but I have a feeling with the right budget and cast Mr. Trachtenberg could pull it off.
I’ve kept The Weeknd’sHouse of Balloons album beside my bed since it first dropped. This might get the same amount of rotation. Just laid back sexy music. Check out Pigeons and Planes for a link to his newest mixtape, Thursday.
