Delta Spirit’s new album, Into The Wide (Dualtone), is full of anti-war and pro-working-class songs, steeped in literary and biblical images that will make them resonate with almost any listener. The music is deep and moody, playing off the sound of chiming rock guitars, driving rhythms and anthemic vocals against a thick wall of dark, almost industrial noise. The songs paint pictures of the disenfranchised, disillusioned and downcast citizens of our country, folks struggling to get by, but still maintaining their faith in the promises of the American dream. Delta Spirit will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week. Read our new feature on the band.
Kelly Winrich: They Came Together is the newest movie from David Wain and Michael Showalter (Stella, Wet Hot American Summer). Funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time! It’s a parody of parody movies. Makes fun of romantic comedies, hitting every cliche so right on, even down to the lighting. Probably have watched it six times now, and it’s one of those movies that keeps getting better and better. Nearly every single word in the movie is steeped with some sort of sarcasm, underlying joke, or just plain stupidity. I should say also that it’s the stupidest movie I’ve seen in a long time. It’s borderline hairbrain slapstick, but since it’s Stella, I give them a break. Favorite running joke: “Wait! … thanks.” And “Wait! … sshhhit” Watch it and you’ll get it.
