Plaintive, meditative new single, "Range," from Texas-based minimalist music outfit Balmorhea from their forthcoming LP Pendant World.

Balmorhea's last record, The Wind, made my Top 10 Albums list for 2021.

Looking forward to hearing more of their new work!

some art by dave muller

Here is some art from American artist Dave Muller.

Of course I was struck first by the mirror ball & then found detailed paintings of albums / record labels.

My review of Monica is now up at Film-Forward. I really liked the movie, especially Trace Lysette's performance alongside the per usual excellent Patricia Clarkson

Here are some stills from the film. The movie was shot by Katelin Arizmendi.

Meep & I united to discuss disaster movies of the 1970s (plus one from 1980) on the Retro Movie Love Podcast. I also got a chance to show off some of my disaster movie physical media swag.

chile '76

I loved Manuela Martelli's debut film Chile '76

My review for Film-Forward here.

Amazing / symbolic use of colors throughout, which is so fun to see in a new film! The cinematography is by Yarará Rodríguez.

Here are some stills.
