Wild Nothing — Nocturne


Pop

Joshua Boydston
As clichéd as it is easy, it is nice to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Nocturne is the aural equivalent.

The XX — Coexist


Pop

Joshua Boydston
After the aughts’ rush of bands with stellar debuts they were never able to match, there’s been a refreshing trend lately of building up to the masterpiece.

Drive-In

Enjoy the show!


Comedy

Rod Lott
All but dead, the drive-in movie once was at the forefront of entertainment, as American as baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet. I can’t think of a film that bottles that nostalgia better than Drive-In, an obscure comedy worth hunting down.

Two Snakes — Cut Them Down


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Who needs Red Bull, 5-hour Energy or a Thermos of coffee when you can consume Oklahoma City rock act Two Snakes’ EP, Cut Them Down, in less than 10 minutes? It plays like an adrenaline shot: quick, ballsy, addictive.

Sitting Target

Bring me the head of Jill St. John!


Action

Rod Lott
In the case of 1972's Sitting Target, the title refers to Pat Lomart (Jill St. John, Diamonds Are Forever), the wife of rough and rugged Harry (Oliver Reed, Gladiator). The opening scene finds her visiting him behind bars, where he's being held for murder. Since he's liable to get 15 years, she can't wait for him, so she's filing for divorce.

The Tall Man

Short on suspense.


Thriller

Rod Lott
According to some fun facts that open The Tall Man, some 1,000 children vanish each year who never are found. In the near-dead mining town of Cold Rock, that's because they're taken by the mysterious titular figure who's cloaked in black and darts in and out of the woods.
