1. Product Details

Music for Film is the debut album from The March Divide the new project of Jared Putnam ex-The Conversation. An acoustic-based album that only has a full drum kit on half of the songs the unique sound of Music for Film still maintains distinct references to Putnams louder influences such as The Promise Ring and Cursive and Putnams love of Elliott Smith comes out in the albums catchy hooks clever lyrics and unexpected upbeat moments. One of these tunes is the albums first single Still Analog which was labeled impressively hooky by Andrew Leahey- American Songwriter and named the 5 song of 2012 by Stephen Carradini- Independent Clauses. Its pretty ironic that its a pop song about how writing a pop song isnt the solution to my problems says Putnam. I really got my shit together soon after I wrote it though. Its essentially about turning over a new leaf. The March Divide is a fresh start after a break from the life for Jared Putnam the former singer/songwriter for The Conversation. Things seemed to be going great for Putnam in late 2005. He had just moved back to Texas from California after two successful albums on Dead Letter Records The Conversation had a new line up and was all set to sign to a bigger label with major label distribution. As well as my career was going I hadnt really had my head in the game for a year or so towards the end. All those years on tour had really wrecked my personal life and it was coming out in the worst way when I would perform says Putnam. I did it to myself but I was overworked and exhausted. I had one more big tour booked before I was supposed to start work on the new record but at the time I didnt think I could do it anymore so I just walked away. These past few years away from it all have been the best thing for me. Maybe if I had let myself have any time off before things would be different today. I guess Ill never know but I dont have any regrets as to how things have ended up. I just needed time to get my head on straight and sort of figure out who I was outside of being in a band. It only took a couple of years before the void from not playing was too big to ignore. Anyone close to me knows that I couldnt stop forever this is just who I am and Ill never really be happy doing anything else. After taking part in a couple of projects with friends Putnam realized a casual interest wasnt going to be enough and The March Divide was born. The bands debut Music for Film began to take shape when Putnam assigned himself the production duties and started recording some acoustic and vocal tracks. He soon asked his former bandmates from The Conversation - Jorge Ramirez on Bass and Mike Hernandez on Drums - to come aboard. Musician Laura Wheeler joined them on Vocals and Cello to round out the new group. Having Jorge and Mike work on the album with me was great says Putnam. I always felt like I was at my best with them. Since the breakup of The Conversation the band members had splintered geographically so Putnam went about e-mailing files back and forth and embarking on road trips around Texas that had nothing to do with touring. Music for Film is the first album I produced myself and it was a pain in the ass Putnam jokes. He sought help for the mix from John Glover who also worked previously with The Conversation. The album was mastered by TW Walsh Pedro The Lion Benjamin Gibbard Say Hi.
