The Go-Betweens

Friends of Rachel Worth

Jetset

This one comes in like a young and innocent, even fairly happy Lou Reed, with very simple songs with sweet sentiments. Very clear and simple arrangements, clean guitars, bass, non-assuming drum work. Beachy songs about waves, surf magazines, slightly melancholy lost loves, beaches, all mostly with a da da da feel. These are the least angry and confused surfer songs I’ve heard in quite some time. The Beach Boys great nephews-in-law without any harmony arrangements. Nice, pleasant, homey.

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.

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.
