Jay Som

Maybe I was in a weird mood or just not paying attention, but I didn’t really catch onto Jay Som the first time a track from her found its way into my inbox.  Baybee though, which is her latest single, is captivating as hell and I can’t get enough of it.  Groove it with the [...]

Movie Breakdown: Get Out (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Jordan Peele is a very, very funny guy. He’s also an enormous horror fan. Seeing what he can do with a racially-tinged horror film about a black guy going to meet his girlfriend’s white parents has been a delightful bit of anticipation. Post-Screening Ramble: For anybody, the ritual of going to meet your [...]

Movie Breakdown: Get Out

Pre-Screening Stance: Jordan Peele’s Get Out looks like it’s going to be a blast, but occasionally I remind myself that his Keanu was a big fat dud and then I wonder if I’m just being wooed by a well crafted trailer.  WE SHALL SEE. Post-Screening Ramble: Get Out is a wild little ride.  The film [...]

At The Drive In

It’s so weird to me that there’s a new At The Drive In album coming.  Perhaps it’s due to the way the band bowed out just as they were starting to take off, or maybe it’s because most of its members exited the breakup and had successful side projects, but I just figured they wouldn’t [...]

Show Of The Week

It took them a solid handful of years to do it, but the good people in Black Books have finally assembled a new album, and this Saturday at the Mohawk they’ll be celebrating its release.  I got to hear all of Can’t Even a while back, and it’s a good one.  Don’t miss the show! [...]

Parquet Courts

Late last week I got an email about a new Parquet Courts track with Bun B, and I feared that maybe the band had jumped the shark.  Nope.  It’s definitely a weird tune, but I really dig it.  Can’t say I want more of the same, though.  I hope it remains a random little one-off [...]

Movie Breakdown: Fist Fight (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s February, the doldrums of the movie season, and the studios are dumping their just palatable comedies on the masses. Oh, Fist Fight how laughless will you be? Post-Screening Ramble: There isn’t a lot to say about Ricky Keen’s toothless new comedy, Fist Fight. It is exactly the movie it is broadcast to [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Great Wall (Noah)

Pre-Screening Ramble: Matt Damon as a pan-European soldier sidling up to The Great Wall of China to fight monsters with a bow and arrow? Well, I mean, in description it sounds good. Somehow though, I’m still doubtful. Post-Screening Ramble: In some alternate reality, there’s a five hour cut of this film that not only makes [...]

Movie Breakdown: A Cure For Wellness

Pre-Screening Stance: Gore Verbinski did a pretty great job with The Ring, so I’m all about him getting spooky/scary/suspenseful again via A Cure For Wellness.  With that being said, I can’t say I’ve found the early footage to be all that interesting. Post-Screening Ramble: A Cure For Wellness is one of those weird movies that [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Jazz Freedom (Randy)

Things aren’t great right now for lots of reasons. I think often of a quote from Sun Ra that says, “The real aim of music is to co-ordinate the minds of the people into an intelligent reach for a better world and an intelligent approach to the living future.” I have little other commentary except [...]

Fujiya & Miyagi

On April 7 the great Fujiya & Miyagi will be releasing their sixth full length.  Technically, it’s a compilation made up of the two EPs the band put out last year and the EP they’re about to put out this year, but who’s counting.  All that matters is that there’s new Fujiya & Miyagi for [...]
