North County San Diego is killer - the place is pure magic and puts out more than it’s fair share of artistic and athletic talent – must be something in the salt water.
Encinitas locals Years Around The Sun have the beautiful trailer track for Taylor Steele’s epic new surf travel film presentation – Castles in The Sky – which premiered last month in NYC and Southern CA. The band just released their portion of the soundtrack and the DVD for Castles In The Sky will also hit the streets soon - hopefully we can expect the new EP – Incarnation – from the boys later this year.
The new movie looks to be nothing short of outstanding. Taylor Steele’s work has been the definitive standard for a well paid surf career in the modern era. “Castles” looks to be more of a step-above than a follow-up to his Sipping Jetstreams masterpiece – another inspiring glimpse of the unique visions we have as surf explorers. Catch it before it leaves the states for OZ & the UK – join me and B at the Cardiff show @ Patagonia on July 2nd. Two Audio Muffin celebs in one location, here is your chance…
Years Around the Sun appeared on the Sipping Jetstreams soundtrack a few years back and more recently joined in on some of the international wanderings involved with the making of “Castles”.
The band’s strong, ethereal sound and intelligent words provide a perfect compliment to Steele’s cinematic style. The people are stoked to have a fresh look at what YATS have to offer as their previous work – 2005′s Introstay & 2008′s Inva De Silva – were both killer albums that flew pretty stealth under radar. Lots and lots of good songs from these guys, so let’s hope they keep up the good work.
werD up boys and girls, enjoy.
