Film Review: Trust (directed by David Schwimmer)

Read my review of David Schwimmer’s new film, Trust, that I wrote for Paste Magazine here. Friends, this is not, as Schwimmer tackles the uncomfortable subject of rape and online predators.

MP3: Boris – “Riot Sugar”

Some new hard-rocking, heavy-hitting, sludge-dealing, shit-storming music from Boris off of their new album, Heavy Rocks, due out this spring. Download here.


Video: Buck 65 – “Zombie Delight”

Buck 65 usually annoys me to no end, but his new video for “Zombie Delight” is ten times better than The Walking Dead.


MP3: Yacht – “Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)”

Is that some Auto Tune I hear on Yacht’s new single from their forthcoming album, Shangri-La (out on DFA 6/21)? I believe it is.


Video: RA The Rugged Man – “A Star is Born”

This song is not new, but I guess the video is. RA is always great, but this video is basically an updated version of “Dre Day.”


MP3: Atari Teenage Riot – “Blood In My Eyes”

Atari Teenage Riot are back with a new album out this summer on Digital Hardcore, Is This Hyperreal? Cut through the frenetic tech-punk haze to decipher the anti-human trafficking message and enjoy “Blood In My Eyes” here.
