ABCs of Death 2 Dir. by a lot of people [Magnet Releasing; 2014] by Matt Mergener Rating: On the surface it would be easy to discount the ABCs of Death 2. A collection of horror shorts released around Halloween reads like something out of a studio’s marketing playbook. Show More Summary

Film Review: Braddock America (Dir. Gabriella Kessler, Jean-Loïc Portron)

Braddock America Dir. Gabriella Kessler, Jean-Loïc Portron [Program33; 2014] by Matt Biancardi Rating: It’s been decades since the region now known as the Rust Belt busted, although busted isn’t quite the right word. “Busted” denotes excess, a deluge in some form untenable by restraints set in place.

It’s just about time to drop that beat into a crystal cylinder and get this party pinging. You text me the wifi? I’m grip on four bars. Signal good to transfer. Can I get your user name?

? Listen: Touch A.C. - Satan’s on His Way and He Wants His Hugs : Remixes for a Better Tomorrow

Over here! This is pretty interesting. It’s Louisville’s Touch A.C., an’ he stretched out and dead in the street. Two cars – about nine mother fuckers – just rolled up and holed the fucked up, remix-style. And it ain’t much different than any other day in the sunny-side of them ALMOST southern (Kentucky is JUST about south, yeah?) streetz. Show More Summary

Guerilla Toss announce new EP Smack the Brick, stream the whole dang thing

In their early days as a band, Guerilla Toss met with some push back from the dreaded Gentle Handling of Gorillas and Apes Lobby, and so they changed their name (swapping out the animal for the activist), knowing full well that the Pun...Show More Summary

? Listen: HVAD - HVAD

How can the sexuality of the entire planet be magnified – how could it be “boosted” to emancipate the classical demon-ritual from it’s dialectical slumber – how could the bullshittery of the dianetical “engram” be forgiven, released,...Show More Summary

Premiere: Panabrite - “Regent”

There’s no need to get into how much digital ink I’ve shed in praise of Panabrite, Norm Chambers’ Seattle based ambient synth project, and yes, I’m going to spill some more!

Film Review: Nightcrawler (Dir. Dan Gilroy)

Nightcrawler Dir. Dan Gilroy [Open Road Films; 2014] by Alan Zilberman Rating: When my alt-weekly polls its readers for the best local band, the consistent winner is a 90s cover band called White Ford Bronco. They play songs that drunks can sing along to easily, and their namesake is a reference to the most notorious local news footage ever recorded. Show More Summary

When the two members of a musical duo have the same last name, can they ever actually break up? Orbital tried this once before. About a decade after their initial colorful contributions to the pioneering wave of early-90s techno, they (unintentionally) used Blue Album as the melancholic swan song signaling their imminent separation.
