This morning, I learned that the Califone documentary, "Made a Machine By Describing the Landcape," has finally been released. I just ordered my copy here.

I just got my copy and loved it. Great performances and interviews. Well done. Not a superslick HD production, but very well put together.

Just noticed andu's post from a few weeks ago.

Not sure how I overlooked that, but I'm very excited that the movie has finally been released. We've been waiting for years.

is there much in way of bonus live footage? I'm thinking about holding off for a while in the hopes that a two-disc version is released later. My hesitation paid off with All My Freinds, wonder if it will with this?

I bought the first edition of AMFAFS, then discovered that the "deluxe version", released 6? months later, apparently has a live show from March of 2010 from NY, if I recall correctly. I would love to see it and never have had a problem spending money on the guys, but something about this put me off a little. Guessing it was a marketing move by IndiePix, and I'm not slamming the band at all, but for me, it backfired...do it right up front and let people decide which version they want. not after...but this is common these days with the mu(sick) industry.

Just noticed a couple of you on this thread are in hard-hit areas of Alabama. Hope you and anyone else on here from down there are doing ok and really sorry about what happened.

The two disk version of Funeral Singers DVD has a live show from NYC, plus a great live radio show (sans Joe), along with several little vignettes. I would recommend it, worth the extra dough. That's why I'm curious about the documentary since they have a TON of footage it just seems natural that there would be a bonus disk with some choice versions of songs and/or shows...
