“Are machines making me less me, or am I more because of machines?”

In anticipation of their upcoming album Music For Dogs, Gardens & Villa teamed up with director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin for the mini-doc ‘Maximize’. Shot purely on a 35mm and Super 8, it “presents Los Angeles as if viewed through the eyes of 1920s avant-garde provocateurs Dziga Vertov and Sergei Eisenstein, giving an insight into the ideas, doubts and reflections swirling around the bands’ heads as they wrote and recorded their new LP, Music For Dogs” (Via HUCK Magazine)

Pre-Order Music For Dogs, out 8/21 now via SCD, iTunes, or Amazon
