That cover/poster will probably tell you as much as you need to know. Either that image draws you in, or you reel with disgust. That last one is the smart decision. It’s not the one I made or ever make when presented with so many cinematic possibilities.
The movie is hysterically stupid and I loved it for that.
I have more reviews coming from the Film Maudit 2.0 Festival. Here are the two most recent: Wild Bones and Agatha.
My review for Monsters, the latest in the Dark Tide series also just went up.
An improvised record with a spoken word/dadaist poet. Though I love both tastes, sometimes they don’t work together. Not sure what it is, but I’ve really enjoyed this one this week. More about it here.
Red Krayola is one of those bands I’ve heard about more than I’ve heard, so it was a joy to step back into their 1968 release God Bless The Red Krayola and All Those Who Sail With It. Homemade psych rock with experimental edges. Could have influenced the sonics and the assaults of Sun City Girls or the freaky folk of early Michael Hurley.
This week’s playlist features a couple of salutes. The Byrds’ “I See You” for David Crosby and “Solid State Survivor” for Yukihiro Takahashi, the drummer and vocalist for the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Both highly influential artists, but in very different ways.
Several new releases I hope to get to this weekend, including new Kali Malone, John Cale, and a new Nyege Nyege Tapes release by Rain Treanor and Ocen James.
