Andrew Jervis I never really got into Russell's folkier stuff, but I'm digging this album. Great to see so many of his titles on Bandcamp now. Favorite track: Come to Life.

Soundtrack for the film KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, directed by Ira Sachs.

keepthelightsonfilm.com

Featuring nine songs culled from Arthur Russell’s eclectic catalog included in the film, the KEEP THE LIGHTS ON soundtrack serves as an introduction for the uninitiated to the sui generis music of the prolific composer and cellist. “When I had finished the script for KEEP THE LIGHTS ON — it came to me that his work would be the perfect companion to the story I wanted to tell. Messy, melancholy, beautiful, and full of humor, I had a sense that Arthur’s music could become like another character in the film itself,” said Sachs.

KEEP THE LIGHTS ON chronicles an emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. The film won the Teddy Award at the Berlin Film Festival, and Outstanding Dramatic Feature and Best Screenplay at Outfest: The Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival. The trailer can be seen here.
