Twenty-five years ago, Olivia Tremor Control released its debut studio album, Music from the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk at Cubist Castle, contributing not only to the Elephant 6 collective’s musical mythology, but to the national conversation surrounding psychedelic, indie and art rock genres. The Realized Film: Dusk at Cubist Castle is an upcoming fan-made, band-approved and self-described lo-fi documentary that weaves together unseen archival footage, session recordings, interviews and covers by over 20 different artists.
In celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary, a 20-minute portion of the film—along with videos of multiple covers performed by the likes of Saturday Looks Good to Me, Folklore and Elekibass—will be screened during a YouTube watch party on Aug. 6 at 8 p.m. This sneak peek will only be available online for five days, after which fans will have to wait until the film’s official release slated for this fall. Join the viewing party by searching for the film’s title on YouTube, and stay tuned to therealizedfilm.tumblr.com for updates.
