Raised Eyebrows: 2017 RIP (Randy)

Before the holidays kick in, I wanted to take a moment here to look back on the incredible artists that we have lost in 2017. 2016 hit hard with Bowie and Prince, and 2017 did not let up. Here are a small group of musical artists who each found their own unique space within this [...]

Screaming Females

Oh yes, there’s a new Screaming Females song.  Below you’ll find a fancy ballad, which is the third single off of the band’s next album, All At Once (due February 23).  Enjoy. PS – The band will be back at Barracuda on April 21.

Movie Breakdown: Justice League (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s hard for me to think anything but horribly negative thoughts about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, as it is absolutely one of the biggest failures of a film, big-budget of otherwise, that I’ve ever seen. Zack Snyder and DC Comics could barely handle Superman and Batman on the big screen together, [...]

Movie Breakdown: Justice League

Pre-Screening Stance: For a while now I’ve been trying to get myself excited for Justice League, but I just haven’t been able to get over the “yeah whatever” hump.  With that being said, I’ve yet to see anything about this film that makes me think it’s going to be a stinker. Post-Screening Ramble: It’s fine.  [...]

Movie Breakdown: Last Flag Flying

Pre-Screening Stance: I’m only going to see Last Flag Flying because it’s directed by Richard Linklater.  I mean, I like the cast, but old guy road trip movies are rarely ever good.  Also, could they have made a more boring trailer for this movie?  I doubt it. Post-Screening Ramble: Last Flag Flying is a lot [...]

Pinegrove

Today I have a song that I missed a couple of weeks back.  It’s from Pinegrove, and it’s a total bummer.  Great stuff, though.  No word yet on when to expect an official follow-up to 2016′s Cardinal.  Enjoy.

Widowspeak

Over the weekend I totally fell in love with Widowspeak’s version of Neil Young’s Harvest Moon.  They somehow made a delicate song even more delicate.  Put on headphones before you hit play!  Enjoy.

Movie Breakdown: Lady Bird (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Greta Gerwig wrote and directed this semi-autobiographical film. Greta Gerwig also co-wrote and starred in Frances Ha. This seems to be a winning combination. Post-Screening Ramble: Lady Bird could be Frances Ha: The Prequel, and I mean that in the best way. The film centers on the self-named Lady Bird (played by Saoirse [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

This year hasn’t blossomed like I thought it might. The new metal releases that I comb through to find my top 25 each year began in January and pretty much stalled over the summer months. It looked like there would be an upswing towards the end of the year, and so far there have been [...]

Movie Breakdown: Murder On The Orient Express

Pre-Screening Stance: This one looks like it should be a winner.  It’s based off Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery, it’s got a rather big cast of famous faces, and Kenneth Branagh is a pretty solid director (especially when it comes to period pieces).  Why then do I feel like it’s going to be a dud? [...]

Alyeska

I took a stroll around Stereogum this morning, and whilst doing so I came across an artist called Alyeska.  Oh man.  They’re fantastic.  Or, at least, the one song I found is fantastic.  I need to check out more ASAP.  Hit play to indulge in a slab of 90s-inspired indie rock.  Enjoy.
