And So I Watch You From Afar

andsoi

First of all, I think the cover for And So I Watch You From Afar’s new album, The Endless Shimmering (due October 20) is hilarious.  Secondly, the first singe off the LP is a post-rock gem and it just may be my favorite track by them.  Grab headphones!  Enjoy.

Alvvays

I have heard Alvvays’ upcoming album, Antisocialites, and I can tell you that it’s really good.  Make sure you snatch it up when it gets released on September 8.  Also, if you’re in Austin, go and see them at the Mohawk on October 17.  For right now though, just listen to the catchy third single.  [...]

Raised Eyebrows F

This year is brimming with excellence on the recorded music front. In my second installment of noteworthy records from 2017, I’m finding female artists to be totally ruling; continuing to transcend the lines of genre and influence. 1. James Elkington – Wintres Woma This is based purely on the ecstasy of the single “Make It [...]

Movie Breakdown: Shot Caller (Noah)

sc_02265_sg_-_h_2017

Pre-Screening Stance: The only thing I know about this film is that Jaime Lannister is in it. But I like Jaime Lannister, so, hey I guess I’m mildly excited. Post-Screening Ramble: Shot Caller, written and directed by Ric Roman Waugh, is the type of film that feels like an epic, but when its final credits [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Noah)

trailer-the-hitmans-bodyguard-696x464

Pre-Screening Stance: I have been oddly amused by the trailers for The Hitman’s Bodyguard. It may be the cast – Samuel L. Jackson and Gary Oldman in Old European Villain Mode – or it may be that the trailer paints it as a sprightly, action-comedy. Or, it may be that my standards for film viewing [...]

Movie Breakdown: Logan Lucky

dc

Pre-Screening Stance: Steven Soderbergh isn’t so good at being “retired” or whatever, so he’s gone and directed Logan Lucky.  The movie looks like a hillbilly version of Ocean’s 11, so I don’t really have any choice but to be excited about it. Post-Screening Ramble: As expected, Logan Lucky is essentially Steven Soderbergh’s countrified take on [...]

I’ve got a headphone-worthy piece for you today.  The track is from Behind The Shadow Drops, a new solo project from Taka Goto of Mono, and I really like the meatier-Stranger Things sound that it’s packing.  Consider me excited for the act’s upcoming debut LP, Harmonic (due September 22).  Enjoy.

Movie Breakdown: Brigsby Bear

brigsby-bear-sundance-2017-review

Pre-Screening Stance: I haven’t seen any of director Dave McCary’s other efforts, so I don’t know whether or not I should be excited about his Brigsby Bear.  I will say this though, I like the quirky look of it. Post-Screening Ramble: Brigsby Bear is a tough one to talk about because it’s honestly better if [...]
