On Petra Goes To The Movies, epic and evocative scores have been ingeniously recreated utilizing layers of remarkably inventive vocals. Far from a mere novelty, these interpretations retain every bit of emotional resonance and inspirational might as the originals. Haden is a highly regarded musician and former member of That Dog who has contributed to records by Beck, The Twilight Singers, The Decemberists, Foo Fighters, Mike Watt and others. In 2005 released an a-cappella rendition of the Who’s pop art masterwork “The Who Sell Out” to widespread acclaim. Pete Townshend proclaimed the record “beautiful.”
