We Are What We Are, the US remake of the Mexican horror film “Somos lo que Hay” debuted at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and is now releasing a soundtrack which includes a track by Fervor Vintage Masters artist Tommy Strange and the Features.
The 1967 song It Was Me That Made Her Bad was one of three Fervor Records cuts heard in the rural psychological thriller, along with the 1957 tune I’ll Pretend (Glen Morris) and A Child Alone (Eddie Eldon). The first two appear on the popular compilation release Vintage Country, 1957-1969 (pictured above).
Critically acclaimed, this creepy remake from filmmaker Jim Mickle (Stake Land) was called ‘better than the original’ by Indiewire.com’s Eric Kohn and ‘one of the best horror films of 2013′ by HollywoodChicago.com.
We Are What We Are is slated for a limited US theatrical release on Sept. 27th, and the soundtrack drops Tuesday Sept. 24th on Milan Records.Read More
FX recently premiered a brand new TV series called The Bridge, and has handpicked a song from the Fervor Records Vintage Masters catalog for the 3rd episode.
Based on the Scandanavian series Bron, the American drama is set on the borderlands of El Paso and Juarez, starring Diane Kruger (Troy, National Treasure) and Damien Bichir (Che, Weeds) as law enforcement officers from each side.
This week’s edition will feature Second To You, a 1968 recording by Arizona Country crooner Eddy Eldon.
This lonely Waltz, which was Eldon’s Ramco Records debut, features his charismatic Elvis-like voice on top of some lap-steel twang accented with a little Spanish guitar with the refrain:
“Wherever you go, and whatever you do…all the good things in life is a second to you.”
The dusty borderland drama airs episode 103 “Rio” this Wednesday July 24th @ 10pm, and will include Eddy Eldon’s Country ballad, available on the Fervor Records release Vintage Country, 1957-1969Read More
One of them is the forlorn Country classic Walk My Loneliness Home, by Buddy Long, from the Fervor Records release Vintage Country 1957-1969.
The other selection is Your Love Fades With Time, by Eddie M., from the Fervor Records release Cult Hits of the 1960’s, Vol. 3, featuring lush oohs and aahs and a little roadhouse piano.
This is the first time these A-listers have been paired together on the big screen, and though both have flexed their comedic muscles in recent years, this is no such film. It is a grizzly action suspense thriller revenge story centered around two war veterans from opposing sides.
Killing Season hits theaters today, July 12th. Both Fervor songs that appear in the Millennium Films production are available worldwide.
The Sundance Channel’s original series Rectify airs a new episode on Monday called “Jacob’s Ladder” and it will feature the 1968 Jackie Stewart tune Maybe Tomorrow.

The 33-track compilation album also includes obscure cuts from future mega-stars like Waylon Jennings, Duane Eddy and more.
