ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Rainbow (Dark Side of the Moon syncing with The Wizard of Oz) this album syncs perfectly with the 1985 cult classic Disney film, Return to Oz. The project and album premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival with Fairuza Balk, star of the film as host.
The album tells a story both independently of the film as well as along side it, making the recording both a moving and enjoyable road trip record or a great companion to the film. The album features over fifteen mulit-instrumentalists from around the country including: banjo, saw, dorbro, toy piano, accordion, mandolin, violin, pedal steel, manipulated archival radio and the striking harmonies between the strong jazz vocals of Eliza Wren Payne and the delicate fairy-like vocals of Eliza Wren herself.

Brad at CD Baby


You've no doubt heard of the "Dark Side of the Rainbow" phenomenon that was all the rage some years ago (it involved syncing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with The Wizard of Oz), and whether you found it mind-blowing or ridiculous, you would probably at least agree that the concept was intriguing. Eliza Wren (fronting the band of the same name) took the concept and ran with it - not only creating an album that syncs up perfectly with the accompanying film, but also choosing not the original Oz, but the darker and much more cult-classic-y Return to Oz. Now, I can't say that I've had a chance to actually experience the album while watching the movie, but the music is such an accomplishment on its own that I can't imagine watching the film with it would do anything but make it better. This double album contains 30 tracks (running the entire length of the movie), and while some of them beautifully channel the spaced-out Floyd approach ("Like a Train," "Music Box"), the overall feel of the album is impossible to categorize, simply because there is so much ground covered. The vocals are enchanting, the songs are intricately crafted, and the whole thing is monumental. You've got to hear it to full understand it.
