Family Of The Year's "Hero" Featured in 'Boyhood,' Film By Richard Linklater


Official Trailer For Boyhood, Featuring “Hero”

Hero” by Nettwerk Records’ Family Of The Year is featured in the groundbreaking masterpiece, Boyhood, a film by Richard Linklater.

Last week, Boyhood made headlines with its debut at specialty box office, grossing the second best numbers of the year following Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, Linklater cast a child (Ellar Coltrane) as his protaganist and continues to build a story around him until he goes off to college. Rather than a documentary, the highly anticipated movie is a “complete, well-crafted character study,” (Entertainment Weekly).

Nettwerk One Publishing Artist Perfume Genius To Release New Album 'Too Bright' On September 22

Listen to “Queen” now: http://po.st/PGQYT

Over the course of two astonishing albums, Nettwerk One publishing artist Perfume Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, cemented his place as a singer-songwriter of rare frankness, creating songs that, while achingly emotional, offered empathy and hope, rather than any judgment or hand-wringing. Sparse, gorgeous and with Hadreas’ quavering vocals often only accompanied by piano, they were uncommonly beautiful tales of a life lived on the dark side – scarred, brutal-ised, yet ultimately, slowly but surely reclaimed.

Too Bright, however, is something else altogether. Less self-conscious, and less concerned with storytelling and easily-digested melodies, it is a brave, bold, unpredictably quix-otic exploration of what Hadreas calls “an underlying rage that has slowly been growing since ten and has just begun to bubble up”. Recorded with Adrian Utley of Portishead and featuring John Parish on several tracks, it is a stunning about-face which brings to mind audacious career-shift albums like Kate Bush’s The Dreaming or Scott Walker’s Tilt, records which walk the tightrope between pure songwriting and overt experimentation.
