The War On Drugs

You guys grab anything rad on Record Store Day?  I got a couple of cool things (like Dolly Parton’s first recordings), but since I didn’t get up at 3am, I didn’t even see the “bigger” releases. This includes the new single that The War On Drugs put out.  Thankfully though, there’s a stream!  The 11-minute [...]

Movie Breakdown: Unforgettable

Pre-Screening Stance: I’m 100% certain that Unforgettable is going to be terrible, but I’m really hoping that it’ll be fun-terrible.  I’m also very down to watch Katherine Marie Heigl play herself.  Zing! Post-Screening Ramble: I thought for sure that Unforgettable was going to be trashy and hilarious, and that didn’t quite turn out to be accurate.  [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Choice Ra Cuts (Randy)

Sun Ra was an artist who was way ahead of the curve. He was so ahead of the curve, that we may never catch up to his music or his views in our lifetime. But it’s fun to try! This month I’ve got some choice cuts from the realm of Ra spanning from 1956-1970. “Sunology [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Lost City Of Z

Pre-Screening Stance: Theaters are currently loaded with The Fate Of The Furious, Ghost In The Shell, Power Rangers and the like, so I have no idea who Bleecker Street is expecting to run and out see The Lost City Of Z, a heavy-looking two and a half hour film about a fella stumbling around in [...]

EMA

When EMA let slip that she had an album so political that Matador didn’t want it, I immediately imagined something way overdone and unlistenable.  I suppose the rest of the LP could still turn out to be this way, but the first single is pretty rad.  Check out the anthemic track below.  Exile In The [...]

Show Of The Week

This week is a show I’ve been looking forward to since early March.  It’s Wiretree’s album release party at Lambert’s!  The band’s new LP, Towards The Sky, is very good and currently available, so you can dive into it now in preparation for Friday.  Do it. Tix are $8.  Good Field will open.  Also, this [...]

Movie Breakdown: Free Fire

Pre-Screening Stance: Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, A Field In England) is a buzzy director and the list of actors he’s assembled for Free Fire includes Brie Larson, Arnie Hammer, Sam Riley, Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley and Michael Smiley.  Seems like a winning combo to me. Post-Screening Ramble: Ostensibly, Free Fire isn’t a movie with a whole [...]

Ratboys

While there’s nothing particularly sweet about the name Ratboys, that is the word I think best describes the first single off of their new album, GN (due June 30 via Topshelf).  On another note, I love that the band’s press release notes that they were influenced by the “down-to-earth sincerity of late-90s Sheryl Crow.”  No [...]

Do Make Say Think

One of the nicer things that 2017 has delivered (so far) is the return of Do Make Say Think. The post-rock act was pretty quiet for a good eight years, and now they have a new album, Stubborn Persistent Illusions, coming on May 19 via Constellation.  I can’t wait to spend lots of time with [...]

Movie Breakdown: Their Finest

Pre-Screening Stance: Once upon a time Lone Scherfig directed An Education, a movie that I still really love.  That’s enough for me to be at least a little excited about her new flick. Post-Screening Ramble: Their Finest is a bit scatterbrained, but I liked it nonetheless.  The film takes place in Britain during WWII and [...]

Land Of Talk

I loved the first Land Of Talk single, then slightly side-eyed the second one, and now I’m adoring the third tune off of the act’s upcoming album, Life After Youth.  I guess this means there’s currently a 66% chance that I’m going to dig the new LP?  Guess we’ll find out how the cookie crumbles [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Fate Of The Furious

Pre-Screening Stance: I just made my girlfriend watch all seven previous Fast And Furious entries (practically in a row) because I wanted her to be fully caught up before we saw The Fate Of The Furious.  That’s how much I love this big, dumb and ridiculously fun series.  Bring on #8. Post-Screening Stance: Just as [...]

Show Of The Week

There are three great local release parties happening this week (somehow all on Friday) – Slack Capital 2, The Digital Wild, Hovvdy – but I think the spotlight needs to be pointed towards Chairlift.  They’re on their farewell tour!  So, it’s legit your last chance to see the band at the Mohawk this Saturday.  Well, [...]
