American Football

Well looky looky at American Football, they’re now set to release their sophomore full length a mere 17 years after their debut album hit store shelves!  At this point there is no denying that emo is all the way back, yeah?  I certainly think it is.  Anyways, slap on some headphones, rally up a small [...]

Movie Breakdown: War Dogs (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Todd Phillips is one of the defining comedic directors of our time. You might not love everything he’s done – I sure don’t – but his broad-faced dissections of male relationships in times of trouble and tragedy are, well, deeply ingrained into the pop culture consciousness. So, what happens when he turns the [...]

Movie Breakdown: Kubo And The Two Strings

Pre-Screening Stance: I hadn’t even heard of Kubo or his two strings until I started getting slammed with TV spots for the film while watching the Olympics.  It looks good though.  Or maybe I’ve just been so inundated with “IT’S GREAT!” quotes that I feel the need to agree?  Guess we’ll see. Post-Screening Ramble: Kubo [...]

Cymbals Eat Guitars

The heavy rain in Austin this morning had me ready to commit to a lazy day in bed, but I rallied myself up so that I could share the new Cymbals Eat Guitars single with you.  Also, I totally have a bunch of other things I need to take care of today, but let’s just [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Top 50 Records Of 2016 – So Far (Randy)

2016 has been a RAD year for new music. Maybe the best we’ve seen this century. With several months still left to go and a TON of wonderful records still to be released, I thought it’d be good to play catch up with the wonder that’s happened already. 50. Body Awareness – Evening Raga One [...]

Movie Breakdown: Sausage Party

Pre-Screening Stance: This is one of those rares times where I’m rolling into a movie that I’ve already seen.  Well, sort of.  What I saw at SXSW earlier this year was a really rough cut and, while I did like it, I’m hoping that the finished version delivers an overall … um … tighter experience. [...]

A. Sinclair (Video Premiere)

Boy am I excited to be premiering the Zack Scott-directed, Taylor Camarot-shot video for A. Sinclair’s You Got A Heart.  Not only is the song one of my favorites off of the Austin band’s super solid album, Get Out Of The City, but the video is one of those fancy one-shot efforts.  Rad!  Also, I like [...]

Movie Breakdown: Florence Foster Jenkins

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s been a while since I’ve cared about Hugh Grant, but Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep and the actual story of Florence Foster Jenkins is one that’s fairly interesting.  Also, Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) is a more than capable director.  Could be good. Post-Screening Ramble: Florence Foster Jenkins is based on the [...]

Movie Breakdown: Pete’s Dragon (2016)

Pre-Screening Stance: The marketing for Pete’s Dragon has been super low key (I’m not sure I ever actually saw a trailer) and all I remember about the 1977 version is that there’s a real kid named Pete and an animated dragon named Elliot.  Guess this means I’m heading into Disney’s remake with a rather open [...]

Bad Sports

Fun Fact: 10 years ago today I started Side One Track One.  It’s been a good ride!  But it’s time to call it quits.  Just kidding.  SOTO has always served as an outlet for me, and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. By the way, I did attempt to curate a [...]
