VOTD: Move over, Daft Punk

Help the world welcome the new Justice album with a pair of prog-tastic music vids.

There’s no denying the resounding influence of 1970s prog rock on Parisian electro-heads Justice (whom many have called the heirs to Daft Punk’s giant pyramid throne) and their much-anticipated second record, “Audio Video Disco,” which was released yesterday. 

The two videos below do well to match the enormity of these new tracks, particularly “Civilization,” which literally has glowing, stampeding space buffalo trying to dodge falling boulders as the world falls apart. Glad to know that somebody other than Kanye West wants to bring back what bands like Yes and King Crimson loved about music.

Secret paroles?

Oklahoma County’s top prosecutor accuses the state Pardon and Parole Board of illegally considering the early release of some inmates.


News

Phil Bacharach
Tim Sharp was shocked when he heard from his aunt last month that the woman who had killed his father in a drunk-driving accident was up for parole. The inmate, Maelene Chambers, had served only four years of a 10-year manslaughter prison sentence for the 2006 death, and Sharp knew that manslaughter was one of more than 20 state crimes in which offenders were required to serve at least 85 percent of their sentence.

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

The truth hurts.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I can't believe — just. cannot. believe. — that Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory lost the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature this past spring. And to a football movie, no less! It's another case of the jocks running ragged over the outcasts, except these outcasts were able to effect something few docs achieve: change.

No Justice — America’s Son


Country

Louis Fowler
When something really catches my ear, I tend to imagine it in the closing credits of a movie, and then I work backward, formulating a plot and actors. “Never Gonna Be Enough,” the opening track on Red Dirt rockers No Justice’s latest, America's Son, had me doing that within 10 seconds.
