Wonderly opens the door to their film-composing world to birth a batch of new songs, plus phase one of a cycle of short films they’ve been working on. Best-known for the theme to the New York Times' The Daily Theme, Dear Sugar Theme and film music, the duo also pens irresistible narrative songs filled with strange production twists, harmonies, and stories worthy of film.

With their new song and film cycle True & Tall Tales of the Pacific NorthWeird, Jim Brunberg and Ben Landsverk focus on their passion for odd stories from the region and collaborate with multiple disciplines, including authors, live-action filmmakers, animators, native storytellers and artists.

See the Oregon city of Bayocean fall into the sea! Feel the D.B. Cooper story from the viewpoint of a flight attendant! Understand the Balloon Bombs of WWII! Meet mythical creatures of time immemorial, as described by Celilo Elders! Yup, it’s all over the map—the map of the Pacific NorthWeird.

Bizarre Star Strings open and play along.
