Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

Losing Prince has made this a tough month, but at least we have his music. I made you this mix! It doesn’t feature Prince. Sorry. :DJ Shadow – Nobody Speak feat. Run the Jewels: :Busta Rhymes – Hello feat. Chance the Rapper: :10isee Williams – Nat Turner: :Open Mike Eagle & Paul White – Smiling [...]

White Lung

Oh my.  Have you guys been paying attention to White Lung?  You may have caught their singles as I’ve been posting them, but have you been listening and noting just how awesome all of them have been?  If you ask me, they’re on the verge of releasing what might be the best rock album of [...]

Seratones

Way back on Saturday I saw the Shreveport, Louisiana-based Seratones open up the sold-out Thao And The Get Down Stay Down show at the Mohawk, and I instantly fell in love with them.  Front-lady AJ Haynes has a great voice and an infectious personality, and the band in general just straight up rocks.  Enjoy. :Seratones [...]

Patience

Veronica Falls have always been a favorite of mine, so it was a real bummer to find out that they’re no longer together.  On the bright side, former frontwoman Roxanne Clifford has a new project titled Patience, and it’s pretty grand.  You can check out a video for her first single, which is one of [...]

Movie Breakdown: Green Room (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin was one of my favorite films of 2014. This one is my most anticipated film of 2016. Post-Screening Ramble: Jeremy Saulnier is not a director who shies away from showcasing the bleakness that exists at the hearts of his characters. Though Green Room is a broad step into a [...]

Movie Breakdown: A Hologram For The King

Pre-Screening Stance: I love Tom Hanks, and I liked Tom Tykwer’s work on Cloud Atlas, so therefore I should be excited about A Hologram For The King, right?  Eh.  It looks like a really generic drama, and I’ll be surprised if it turns out to be something worth cheering about. Post-Screening Ramble: Fish Out Of [...]

Deerhoof

Over the last few days Deerhoof have really gotten things moving for their new album.  They first released a song called Debut (it’s down below in video-form), then announced some tour dates, and now there’s another track, Plastic Thrills, that’s made its way into the world.  The first tune (to me anyways) sounds pretty much [...]

Movie Breakdown: Elvis & Nixon

Pre-Screening Stance: While I was initially disappointed that Elvis & Nixon wasn’t some sort of Alan Moore-scripted super hero movie set in a bizarre alternate universe, I do think the film looks just peculiar enough to possibly be good (or at least interesting).  I’m in. Post-Screening Ramble: Elvis & Nixon is an odd film for [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Huntsman: Winter’s War (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Did you, or anyone you know, see Snow White & The Huntsman? I mean, I know a few of us might have soldiered our way to the cinema to ensure that our viewing of everything that’s every featured K-Stew was seen, but for the rest of the sanity holding world, I’m pretty show [...]

Show Of The Week

One of my favorite artists, Thao And The Get Down Stay Down, is in town this week!  I only got to see the act for a brief bit at SXSW, and I need my fix.  All of you should come join me at the Mohawk on Saturday.  By the way, if you do decide to [...]

DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow is rad.  Run The Jewels are rad.  So, naturally, they made a song together that is double rad.  That’s pretty much all there is to say.  Well, that, and I hope that Shadow’s upcoming LP is a good one.  Enjoy. :DJ Shadow – Nobody Speak (Featuring Run The Jewels): The Mountain Will Fall [...]

Quickdraw: The Mystery Lights, Mercury Girls, King Khan, Still Parade, Har Mar Superstar

Music!  Enjoy. :The Mystery Lights – Follow Me Home:  The mighty folks over at Daptone have created a rock imprint, WICK, and The Mystery Lights’ debut will be its first release.  I’m really digging this slinky single.  The band’s self titled album is due out June 24. :Mercury Girls – Ariana:  Mercury Girls are pretty [...]

Beats & Eats: Volume 3 (James)

Beats & Eats is a mixtape and a meal. A collection of tunes (sometimes there’s a theme, sometimes it’s just whatever I’m into this month) and a recipe to cook (bake, mix, whatever) while you listen to the songs. Enjoy! – Earlier this month, music blog Consequence of Sound published a listicle on the Top [...]

Movie Breakdown: The Jungle Book (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Jon Favreau has been sort of fussing around in his own private playground post-Marvel, and his output has been dodgy at best. His upcoming, almost entirely motion captured adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book hasn’t been helped by its saccharine, generic trailers, but, hell, maybe Favreau’s indie sojourn Chef helped stoke his [...]
