Good Riddance

The Phenomenon of Craving

Fat Wreck Chords

This EP has some great punk that you can just sink your teeth into. Seriously. It’s really great. I can play it over and over again and not get tired of it. I just wish it was longer. It covers all the punk musical territory, from poppy punk about girls to harder, sadder songs about life. The lyrics are awesome and hard hitting without being overwhelming, and it’s technically great. My favorite on this album is “One for the Braves,” because I think it is a sweet song. But all of the songs hold their own. If you’ve never heard Good Riddance before, check this out. It made a fan out of me.

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.
