This Week on DVD: October 16th

October 16, 2012 |


Moonrise Kingdom
Wes Anderson’s oddly delightful latest. Read my full review here.


Chernobyl Diaries
Oren Pelli (“Paranormal Activity”) delivers this film about a group of friends who decide to spend their vacation touring the abandoned city of Prypiat, home of the Chernobyl disaster. Got pretty terrible reviews, even for a b-horror flick.  Read More

GonnaWatchIt.com: The Master

October 16, 2012 |

Like me, you’ve probably heard that “The Master” is about the pseudo-religion Scientology, featuring a cult leader played by Philip Seymour Hoffman who bears more than a slight resemblance to L. Ron Hubbard, and a troubled follower, played by Joaquin Phoenix. You might have heard that there was a lot of buzz and controversy about this film before it was ever released, with Scientologists launching their own publicity campaign against it and threatening lawsuits.

Bangers – Good Livin’ EP

October 12, 2012 | 1

UK based Bangers hold back no punches when it comes to their latest EP, Good Livin’. The four track album has a high replay value and is full of melodic punk goodness! We’re talking raspy vocals, backing vocals you can’t help but sing along with, and a cleaner sounding guitar than one would expect.

The band’s sound channels the likes of Hot Water Music and Samiam, both of which were hugely influential to the punk scene in the 90s. Paying homage and still offering a fresh take on the sound, Bangers is a band to keep an eye on. They are doing punk right! Read More

This Week On DVD: October 9th

October 10, 2012 |

This week, a ton of the movies coming out are throwbacks to the ’80s & ’90s, in one way or another.

Rock of Ages
Deliriously silly rock n roll musical (focusing on ’80s’ & ’90s glam rock) starring Tom Cruise. Read my full review here.

 


Prometheus
The supposed prequel to “Alien,” except not really, because it happens on a differently numbered planet. Plus Guy Pearce spends the entire film wearing really terrible aging makeup. Other than that, it was a pretty good film. Charlize Theron and Idris Elba co-star.

Blue Boats – EP

September 21, 2012 | 1

Summer may be drawing to a close but that won’t stop Blue Boats from delivering an undeniably catchy way to enjoy the last bit of the sun’s rays! Oliver Gale is the man behind the uplifting dreampop project based out of Bournemouth , UK. Upon first listen we were immediately sold on the concept. ummer’s Down and Sun Burns are two tracks currently featured on his Bandcamp page that blend some of our favorite elements like surf and chillwave. The overall sound is wonderfully addictive and has left us clamoring for more! Read More

Fevers – Passion Is Dead

September 12, 2012 | 1

A fever normally instills thoughts of sleepless nights, high temperature, and lots of medicine. Add on an “s” and you’ll end up with a catchy, electro infused indie band located out of Ottawa, Canada. The latter being something infinitely more enjoyable but equally as infectious. Read More

Easter Island – Frightened

September 8, 2012 | 1

Hailing from Athens, GA rather than off the Chilean coastline, relative newcomers Easter Island have already amassed a solid following and created a quality catalog of music. Since 2010, Brothers Ethan and Asher Payne, Nathan Thompson, Ryan Monahan, and seasoned drummer Patrick Ferguson have honed their craft and created an entrancing sound. Read More

Social Media is Getting Out of Hand

September 3, 2012 |

Our reliance on social networks has now taken higher importance to us than keeping real life connections with those we care about. What drives us to post pictures of our food, drinks, fashion and then lord that over our friends … Read More

Germany Germany – Blank Mind Empty Heart

August 30, 2012 | 3

Germany Germany is Victoria, BC based musician Drew Harris. Geographic inconsistencies aside, his take on the electronic scene is something to behold. Elements of indie, future pop, and chillwave are combined with care and then given some artistic flair. The music is genuine, well crafted, and fresh. Live performances consist of added visuals that Drew has programmed and built himself. The LED light boxes elevate the music even further. Read More

The Canadian Shield – Songs For The Dead In Love

August 22, 2012 |

The Canadian Shield refers to the vast region of igneous rock surrounding Canada’s Hudson Bay area, so it makes sense that a rock band would take the moniker and make it their own. Based out of Toronto, this two piece band has their feet firmly planted in traditional rock ‘n roll and it’s clear that these guys are set to do big things. When we first listened to their album, Songs for the Dead in Love, we were immediately hit with a soulful blend of vocals and catchy melodies. It plays out like an awesome night on the town in some bar that you feel right at home in. The sound is polished yet still retains that genuine rock feel. Read More
