TheFletchersPhoto

It’s been three years since Heroes of Gravity, The Fletcher’s third album soared up the college radio charts.The New Jersey-based indie band’s latest CD, Reset the Dial, is now available and highly recommended.

At times, the songs really rock and other times the band will change gears into a more emotional, intelligent and stirring direction. While the group has clearly evolved and matured since their earlier releases, this record is a testament that their rebellious Jersey attitude is still alive and well, even if it’s well hidden at times.

‘Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets’ in NY Theaters Nov. 19

Pulp(PCM) Florian Habicht’s music documentary Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets examines the career of the highly successful BritPop band, Pulp.

Florian Habricht’s witty, innovative documentary follows the legendary titular band (perhaps the smartest and most charismatic in all of BritPop) as they prepare to say farewell after 25 years of performances.

Though culminating with the farewell concert the band played to thousands of adoring fans in their hometown of Sheffield, England, Pulp is by no means a traditional concert film or rock doc.

As much a testament to the band as it is to the city and inhabitants of Sheffield, Pulp weaves exclusive concert footage with man-on-the-street interviews and dreamy staged sequences to paint a picture much larger, funnier, more moving and more life-affirming than any music film of recent memory.

Critics are praising Habicht’s documentary, giving it a fresh rating of 87% on Rotten Tomatoes. Cath Clarke … Read more

Rock Documentary ‘Revenge of the Mekons’ Opens at NYC Film Forum Cinema Oct. 29

RevengeoftheMekons(PCM) From documentary filmmaker and magazine editor Joe Angio comes Revenge of the Mekons, a documentary that chronicles the tumultuous ups-and-downs of the Mekons, a punk rock band from 1970’s England with one of the fiercest fan bases around.

“The Mekons are the most revolutionary group in the history of rock ‘n’ roll” – rock critic Lester Bangs.

A genre-defying collective who emerged from the 1977 British punk scene, The Mekons progressed from socialist art students with no musical skills to the prolific, raucous progeny of Hank Williams.

The film follows their improbable history – a surprising and influential embrace of folk and country music; forays into the art world (collaborations with Vito Acconci and Kathy Acker); and consistent bad luck with major record labels.

Fans Jonathan Franzen, Luc Sante, Will Oldham, Mary Harron, Fred Armisen, and Greil Marcus testify to the power of their music and their artistic Read more
