The Mary Janes

Flame

Flat Earth

I used to think the only good thing in Bloomington, Indiana was Hoosier basketball. Now there are two good things to come out of the small college town: the Hoosiers and The Mary Janes. Rising out of the ashes of the Vulgar Boatmen’s demise comes this new group headed by Janas Hoyt, whose honky tonk not only illuminates her deeply poetic lyrics, but almost lets you smell the sawdust on the floor. The Mary Janes understand their past as they fuse honky tonk vocals with traditional bluegrass instruments, including pedal steel guitar and fiddles, while creating a remarkably fresh sound. This is the kind of record that gets you excited about music again.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
