Movie Breakdown: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

ka

Pre-Screening Stance: The trailers for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword haven’t been all that entertaining, but I like Guy Ritchie and the cast he assembled, so I’m at least mildly interested in the film. Post-Screening Ramble: Here’s the setup for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  Uther (Eric Bana) gets betrayed by his brother, [...]

Movie Breakdown: Snatched (Noah)

thumbnail_25315

Pre-Screening Stance: I like Amy Schumer, I really do. And Goldie Hawn? C’mon, is there anyone more likable? That said, this looks/feels a little bit like when Seth Rogan made Guilt Trip with Barbara Streisand after he blew up the world with Knocked Up. And by that, I mean forgettable. Post-Screening Ramble: So, even if [...]

Sheer Mag

First of all, the artwork for Sheer Mag’s debut album, Need To Feel Your Love (due July 14), is really rad.  I just keep staring at it.  Secondly, the new single is fantastic.  That band just doesn’t know how to write anything that isn’t incredibly catchy.  Enjoy.

Beth Ditto

Beth-Ditto-1493992671-640x360

In case you missed it, Beth Ditto, who once fronted the Gossip, has readied her debut solo album, Fake Sugar (due June 16).  I didn’t much care for the first single initially (though, it’s grown on me), but the second tune, Oo La La, immediately lodged itself in my head.  So infectious!  Turn up the [...]

LCD Soundsystem

Whenever I wasn’t in the mix on multiple weddings this weekend (congrats to all those people), I was thinking about the new tunes from LCD Soundsystem.  I really liked both when I first gave them a listen, but then I started to wonder if it was just because I was excited about the band legit [...]

Movie Breakdown: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (Noah)

guardiansofthegalaxy2-babygroot-detonator1

Pre-Screening Stance: Well, I’ve sat through every other Marvel movie up to this point and for the most part (Thor, I’m looking at you) I’ve enjoyed them. And from that pile of spandex and superstars, Guardians of the Galaxy rises to very near the top. So, yes, I’d say I’m pretty excited. Post-Screening Stance: Guardians [...]

Pre-Screening Stance: Come on!  If you’re not hyped for Baby Groot The Movie Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, then you’re probably dead. Post-Screening Ramble: The nerd in me really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  The film has a bright, colorful, creative design, and it’s very energetic and loaded with great music.  All [...]

Is this the year of compilations?  There have been so many already, and it seems like lots of new ones get announced every week.  Thanks Trump?  At any rate, there’s a new comp coming on May 26!  It’s called Cover Your Ass: Volume 1, and it will benefit Planned Parenthood.  I’m going to pick it [...]

Show Of The Week

There’s so much going on this weekend, and I’m out of all of it due to two weddings.  I’ve really got to tighten up my friend circle.  Just kidding.  On the show front, here’s what I think you should do – support Levitation.  The festival took a pretty big hit last year when bad weather [...]

Kane Strang

DK

The last time I shared something from Kane Strang there wasn’t an official release date set for his sophomore album.  Well, now there is, and that info has arrived with a catchy new single that – like the previous tune – favorably reminds me of Car Seat Headrest.  Look for Two Hearts And No Brain [...]

Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

HHHF

Sometimes it feels like we’re entering another Golden Age of hip-hop, where the records released elevate the art form and challenge other artists to produce better music, and the albums consistently redefine the genre’s edges and limits. Of course, as a result of the speed at which new hip-hop is produced, it feels like we [...]
