Lab Animals

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars

Digital Dimension

Wade through all the dry ice and the throngs of lawnmower-cord-pullin’ vampiras at your local goth club and you’d most likely find the soundtrack accompanying all that playin’-dress-up strikingly close to – nay, exactly like – Lab Animals’ Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars . More cyber-punk than modern industrial (which isn’t true industrial, say, like Throbbing Gristle or early Neubauten), Lab Animals seem quite content to keep on rockin’ in the digital world, wherewith such production techniques semi-mask a wholesale lack of remotely interesting ideas. No bones about it, on a front line assembly of similarly cloned bands, you’re not gonna tell these skinny puppies apart from all the others.

Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Tight

Screen Reviews

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.

Sirens

Sirens

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
