Hear and see Olas: The Film

By SAM PFEIFLE  |  December 12, 2012

The entirety of it is more experience than film. There isn't so much a narrative as an impression, emphasized by Scott Sutherland's many stoic shots: white skirts drying on the line against a crystal blue sky; Kovacevic's feet on the organ's pedals; Dylan Blanchard edging onto Blackstrap Road with his bike.

Like so much of the flamenco music Olas plays, this is a film more for, and of, the body than the mind, though it gives you plenty to think about.

Who knows what will eventually come of the band, but Glue, as a six-song introduction to the world, is a damn fine work filled with highly listenable, ’90s-style indie rock.
