OFFICIAL SELECTION - Hollywood Reel Inde

"A pleasant surprise. Juggles the tone between comedy and drama very well...the cast is good, the directing subtle and effective. Sit down and meet some new friends for an hour and 23 minutes."

What do you do when you love music, and music doesn’t love you back?


It’s a question that haunts Walt (JIM TAVARÉ), the owner of Essential Music, an indie record store in the heart of L.A.'s Silver Lake district. Walt is all too aware of how his punk-rock glory days are fast fading in the rear-view... even as he can’t help recounting war stories to his much younger employees: Lysette (KATE DALTON), who has to contend with a parade of customers convinced she’s the Record Store Girl of their dreams; Chris (DEREK JAMES ELSTRO), the lead singer of Troubled Meats, a band poised for takeoff, and maybe not just in Chris’ mind; and well-meaning music nut Duane (ADAM WEBER), who’s a little too fluent in Rock Critic for his own good.


With a love of all types of music evident in every shot, WARMED-OVER KRAUTROCK is a comedy for anyone who’s ever spent too much time obsessing over playlists — and for anyone who’s ever been driven crazy by that type of person, too.
