Danny-Collins-Movie-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Danny Collins’ Is Al Pacino At His Very Best

Film: Danny Collins
Starring: Al Pacino, Annette Benning
Directed by: Dan Fogelman

Set in suburban New Jersey and littered with enough product placement to please Michael Bay, Danny Collins finds love, laughter, and redemption with a runtime under two hours.

Al Pacino was born to play Danny Collins. A one-time rockstar, Collins has spent the better part of the last four decades living a lie. He’s famous, but not because of material he wrote, and every single day for as long as he can remember that fact has eaten away at his soul, all while Collins did his best to …

UTG PREMIERE: The Black Atlas – “Moonsong”

“Moonsong,” the new ambient rock track from experimental project The Black Atlas, is a translucent and often times cunning track. There are moments in the song that are forthright and loud, and other moments that are atmospheric and ethereal. It’s a solid track from what is expected to be a worthwhile release.

The Black Atlas mastermind Pete Koronios said, “creatively, the lyrics and tone of the song come from a combination of that symbolism, and a sort of interior recollection of personal events.”

The song, which comes off of Devils, the second volume of The Equinox series, can …

Beach Baby Release Video For “Ladybird,” Stream “Bruise”

It’s about time we all formally talked about Beach Baby. A few weeks ago we posted their fantastic new single “Ladybird,” and today we are happy to share with you the video for the catchy track.

The video, directed by Lily Rose Thomas, features three girls seemingly bored finding enjoyment in their days. Just a heads up, the video features a few seconds worth of some NSFW material.

The band has also released their AA side to their upcoming single, “Bruise,” due for release tomorrow. If “Ladybird” was the band’s catchy pop tune, “Bruise” is their more brooding …

'Peripheral Vision' Turnover

Turnover Reveal Video For “New Scream”

Turnover are set to release their sophomore LP Peripheral Vision on May 4 via Run For Cover Records. With the coming release, the band has released a music video with the accompanying track “New Scream,” via Stereogum.

Featuring an atmosphere not unlike ’80s rock legends The Smiths and The Cure, “New Scream” is a crisp, ambient, and clean atmosphere for the band. The video features the band playing behind vibrant lights, with images of childhood memories splashed in between the band’s performance shots. Directed by guitarist Eric Soucy’s brother Rob Soucy, the ethereal imagery fits the band’s sound in …

REVIEW: The Maine – ‘American Candy’

Artist: The Maine
Title: American Candy
Label: 81twentythree
Genre: Indie-Rock, Alternative

One of my music professors once asked me what I thought made a good record. Being the visceral musician, I told him that I hadn’t had coffee and that mumbling the theoretical jargon he wanted out of me would result in a completely skewed judgement of what I thought Jack Mannequin’s Everything In Transit was — the record I happened to have been enjoying that morning.

It’s 8pm and I’ve had about two cups today. I think I’ve found my answer.…

UTG @ Melbourne International Comedy Festival: Joel Creasey – ‘The Hurricane’

Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Comic: Joel Creasey
Show: The Hurricane
Venue: ACMI Below

The last twelve months have seen Joel Creasey rise from the ranks of ‘promising young comedian’ to genuine comedy superstar and national celebrity status. This ascendance has blessed him with an insight into the lifestyles of the rich and famous, exposing him to the idiosyncrasies and human failings of many an A-lister (and C-listers, and whatever Neighbours stars are classified as), and granting him a new perspective on the cult of celebrity.

Creasey’s new show The Hurricane draws on these experiences to hilarious effect, with Creasey using …

UTG @ Melbourne International Comedy Festival: Rhys Nicholson – ‘Forward’

Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Comic: Rhys Nicholson
Show: Forward
Venue: Melbourne Town Hall (Backstage Room)

Rhys Nicholson is regarded as one of the world’s most promising young stand-up talents, and if his new show Forward is anything to go by, it’s not hard to see why. Taking to the stage dressed like a “lesbian debutante ball attendee” (his description, not mine), with an effigy of his own face as a backdrop, Nicholson took command of the room instantly, dazzling the audience with his razor-sharp wit as he delivered multiple laughs per minute.

Devastatingly effective in the realms of filth, sexual …
