Just a Fire

Light Up

Asian Man

Light Up is indicative of my current CD collection, swollen almost to bursting with promos. It’s an album shot through with such mediocre, meandering tracks (dub, reggae AND sloppy indie rock all in one?!? Where do I throw up?!) that the disc would seem bound for a quick exit if it weren’t for one stellar song. It’s the title track: five minutes of solid, no-frills rock. Is it enough to prevent me from giving up this disc? Yes, for the time being – long enough for me to amass enough trashy albums with golden tracks to compile a mix CD of said songs. I’ll dub the disc “Saved From the Gutter,” and quietly usher this lil fella out the door.

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.
