Movie Breakdown: Super Troopers 2

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s been 17 years since the original Super Troopers came out.  SEVENTEEN.  Does anyone still care?  Here’s where I am – the last long-awaited comedy sequel I saw was Dumb And Dumber To (released 20 years after the first film), and since it wasn’t any good, I can’t say my hopes are high [...]

Jim James

I’ve been swamped today, so you’re only getting one track instead of a few.  Fortunately, it’s a really good selection off of Jim James’ upcoming album, Uniform Distortion (due June 29).  I like its thoroughly retro sound.  Enjoy.

Raised Eyebrows: Finally Drag City (Randy)

For the longest time, Chicago’s Drag City label was one of the big holdouts in the great Spotify migration. I’m really happy to report that they are now streaming and the world is a better place for it. The 28 year old indie label (first beginning in 1990), has been home to such greats as [...]

Movie Breakdown: Rampage

Pre-Screening Stance: Brad Peyton (San Andreas) isn’t a great director and Rampage is an odd video game to adapt into a movie, but I’ve found the trailers for this Rock-led actioner to be oddly entertaining.  Maybe this one will be pleasantly surprising. Post-Screening Ramble: Rampage is a dumb movie.  So dumb.  Wildly dumb even.  I’ll [...]

Maps & Atlases

Hey look who’s back, it’s Maps & Atlases!  The band is set to release a new album (their first since 2012) on June 1, and they’ll be in Austin at the Scoot Inn on June 13.  Neat.  Below is the first single off of Lightlessness Is Nothing New.  It’s catchy and buoyant.  Enjoy.
