Next month’s Sundance Film Festival has a killer lineup of titles for film critics and fans to check out – including the directorial debut of Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Grohl is set to reveal his documentary focusing on the legendary Sound City recording studio (titled, imaginatively enough, Sound City), and we’ve got the first official trailer for the film.
Some of the biggest albums in rock history were recorded at the admittedly dumpy little studio and Grohl is set to take viewers on a trip inside and back through time – featuring performances and interviews with some of the legendary musicians who recorded inside its carpeted walls.
It’s not just about that, though – Sound City is more than just a love letter to one studio. It’s a reflection on the art of analog and making music the old fashioned way in an increasingly more digital world. As such, it looks guaranteed to appeal to not only music fans, but the “save analog” community too.
All in all, the trailer looks great, and I suddenly find myself wishing I were going to Sundance this year so I could see this on the big screen. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think. If this clip is any indication, we suspect Grohl might have a future in documentary filmmaking if he ever gets tired of the whole “being a rock star” thing.
