Circle of Birds by Circle Of Birds (Review)

a-b life, mewithoutYou

[A→B] Life by MewithoutYou (Review)

Each of these songs feels convincingly, painfully convicted.

A blend of jazz, trip-hop, and downtempo music that stood out from everything else I heard at this year’s Cornerstone.

Legend of the Wolf by Donnie Yen (Review)

Donnie Yen’s directorial efforts are so self-assured, so blatant, and so… bad.

No Man’s Land by Danis Tanovic (Review)

A sometimes humorous, but more often scathing look at the Serb-Bosnian conflict.
