Prolific American songwriter, producer and family man Butch Walker may be unknown to the millions of fans of such artists as Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Train and Pink, for example, with whom he has produced hit records for, but to industry insiders he is considered as “the musicians musician.”  And to the adoring fans of the prodigious records created under his own name, Butch Walker is an underground God.

A hidden gem and uncompromising servant to his craft, Butch’s rock and roll fairy tale comes into focus as  directors Peter Harding and Shane Valdes capture key notes in the lyrical life of one of today’s most acclaimed and respected singer-songwriters.

With a non-invasive lens, the directors capture candid footage of the man behind the music, and the glimpses are nothing short of inspiring. From a fly  on the wall of his studio sessions, to the streets and clubs of fan-crazed crowds, to the “trampoline” wisdom of his pre-school son, and when you meet Atlanta’s favorite rock-son’s ailing father “Big Butch,” it is clear where this man found his moral rock.

Butch Walker: Out Of Focus is now available for pre-order in Europe on PAL format DVD that includes bonus footage and outtakes.

They Might Be Giants' album Idlewild is released in the UK & Europe today!

Buy direct from Lojinx for bonus free badges & stickers!

"Idlewild: A Compilation" is neither a "best of" nor a rarities set. It is an ultra-vivid illustration of the bands prodigious output and singular musical vision. From the spare, folkie chug of "Words Are Like", which originally appeared as part of TMBG’s internet-only collaboration with eMusic back in the dot.com era glory days of 2001, to the propulsive, dance floor groove of "You’re On Fire", from last year’s Nanobots release, the scope of Idlewild is as wide as it is beguiling.

The follow-up to the 2012 album Soundshine, the new Record Collection EP continues mining the vein of timeless guitar-pop that is David Myhr’s stock-in-trade. 

The title track is a collaboration with fellow popsmith Peter Kvint (Britney Spears, Marshall Crenshaw, Morten Harket, Natasha Bedingfield) and features guest vocals from Japanese mega-star duo Puffy (aka Puffy AmiYumi). 

The EP continues with You Stole My Heart Away, Boom Boom Beat (also featuring Puffy), The Things We Do For Love (a cover of the influential 10CC classic) and closes with an alternative version of Soundshine favourite, Never Mine - re-recorded at Abbey Road, no less.
