Matador at the Movies (on the internet)

By Gabe on Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

This week two of my personal favorites from Matador’s long-to-quite-long history (the band Silkworm and Belle & Sebastian’s If You’re Feeling Sinister album) are being celebrated on the silver-y looking screen sitting on my desk at work.

First, the long-in-the-works Silkworm documentary “Couldn’t You Wait? The Story Of Silkworm” by filmmaker Seth Pomeroy is finally completed and available for stream and purchase here. I will take this opportunity to tell you how important this band has been to me: Silkworm has been incredibly important to me, and will always rule.

Second, Pitchfork has debuted an amazing entry in their Classic (as in classic albums) documentary series about If You’re Feeling Sinister, an album I can’t really talk about here…it’s too personal, I’m sorry. I just cant.
