**For each episode we’ll be posting additional information about the artists who have leant their songs to the show.**
The Opening Titles
The most prominent musical presence in Episode 1 is obviously The Dimes. The introduction of their song “Up For Air” is the musical accompaniment for our opening credit sequence. Grammar School Pictures has a longstanding collaboration with The Dimes, having created on-line and promotional video content for the band since 2006, such as:
The Dimes’ most recent album, The King Can Drink the Harbour Dry, was release on December 1, 2010 on Timber Carnival Records.
It’s no exaggeration to say The Dimes’ new record is a musical Cliffs Notes for an early American History class. A sonic adventure with influences ranging from Simon and Garfunkel to The Beatles’ White Album, it’s the distinct lyrical musings that set it apart from other folk-pop albums this year. Singer-songwriter Johnny Clay delivers a dramatic history lesson with a baroque assortment of instruments, sixties pop harmonies, and delightfully simple arrangements as though he’s channeling the spirits of people, places and events from early day Boston, Massachusetts.

Personally, we’re quite fond of track 2 – “The Liberator.”
What’s Jonathan Listening To?
“I AM” by L PRO, from the upcoming album Vertigo.
Grammar School Pictures recently completed production on a music video for this track and we felt it would bring some great energy to the scene. Plus, L PRO is one of the coolest people we know. We're big fans.
From LPromusic.com: A collection of hard hitting drums, solid lyrical skills and thought provoking concepts for true Hip Hop fans. With this record… L PRO remains committed to bringing a new sound to the pacific northwest and the world. With solid collaborations with Angel, Asa, Price Tag and others, Vertigo is promising to bring what many expect from L PRO.
