Merry Christmas From Americatown!

This Christmas/whatever-holiday-or-occasion-you-want-to-make-it-about we're giving away the soundtrack to Americatown, available for download at This hearty 23 track album is one of our favorite parts of the film and features a mind-blowing original score by savant/wunderkind Seth Moody (still eligible for Oscar Nomination **fingers crossed), songs recorded exclusively for the movie by some of our best friends (Ponchos From Peru, Fortress Of Swatches, Bibis Ellison, Fran Dyer), music from a couple of the most fireball-esque acts in North Carolina (Yardwork, Ryan Gustafson) and a few other tracks by bands that we somehow have a vague, make believe and pseudo-permission to use in the film (Why?, Animal Collective, Dr. Dog ).

Download the pa-ju-ju out of this album, pass it on, find the bands that contributed to it, download the pa-ju-ju out of them and give them all of your money, they are the number ones, and so, SO phenomenomenomenomenal.

Thank y'ins for your support, its been a great year, we couldn't ask for better friends. Keep your eyes peeled, we're just getting started.

Elephant Shoe,
Godspeed yourself (Godspeed your Elf)

Praise for Americatown!!!!

Praise for Americatown:

“Best Feature” --Atlanta Underground FilmFestival

“the exuberance, energy and invention more than justify [its] existence.” --Independent Weekly

“…a sometimes sublime, sometimes slapstick, sometimes puzzling but never dull 77 minutes.” -- Independent Weekly

“[Jonathan Guggenheim and Cory Howard] show the spirit—if not necessarily the execution—of Buster Keaton in his great, more-praised-than-seen works such as Our Hospitality and Sherlock Jr.” --Independent Weekly

“An utterly different take on the American fantasy” --TimeOut Chicago

“It’s fun and contemporary, relevant and humorous, using parody and hyperbole to shed light on the ridiculousness of many “American” values….”--Chicago Art Magazine

“The best of the U.S. squeezed into the ultimate small town community.” --Filmmaker Magazine

"I think I’ve found my favorite new American surrealist comedians in the team of writer/director Kenneth Price and writer/performers Cory Howard and Jonathan Guggenheim. " - Michael Tully - Hammer to Nail
