  3. Cloud - Zen Summer Album ReviewRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Apr 27 | ContactMusic.com

    We seem to be elbow deep in an age where albums are worthless if we define 'worth' by its traditional capitalistic meaning. Prior to the official release of ' Zen Summer ', the fourth album by Los Angeles native Cloud , the entire record was put online to be streamed which means that, along with the fact that this review you are reading is essentially meaningless as it would be quicker to find a link to said stream than to read about it in its entirety, it was made available to the entire world before it could be purchased as an artefact.

    Saturday Apr 18 | /film

    Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they're seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we spend time learning about Paul Newman's obsession with racing, spend some time with corrupt cops, Kickstart some sci-fi, snatch some kids for funsies, and see if any of us can figure out what in the hell prAat-A -porter means beyond just being a really terrible movie from two decades ago.
