Weekly Picks From the Band

Read of the Week
Trespass - Rose Tremain Trespass by Rose Tremain is an electrifying novel about disputed territory, sibling love, and devastating revenge from the celebrated author of The Road Home and Restoration. In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he’s become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion.
Movie of the Week
The Hunger Tony Scott’s directorial debut, adapted from the Whitley Strieber novel, revises the vampire myth with Egyptian inflections and removes all references to garlic and crosses and wooden stakes–these bloodsuckers can even walk around in the daylight–but the ties between blood and sex are as strong as ever. Scott’s background as an award-winning commercial director is evident in every richly textured frame and his densely interwoven editing, but the moody atmosphere comes at the expense of dramatic urgency. At times the film is so languid it becomes mired in its hazy, impeccably designed visual style. In its own way, The Hunger is the perfect vampire film for the ’80s, all poise and attitude and surface beauty.
Album of the Week
SBTRKT is a musician/producer from London, United Kingdom. SBTRKT began his career as a DJ in the east London club « Plastic People ». SBTRKT has remixed songs by artists including MIA, Radiohead, Modeselektor, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson and Underworld, and has released singles, EPs, and a self-titled album. SBTRKT’s music is a mixture of two-step, UK funky, dubstep, US RnB and Chicago house.
Website of the Week
Bridge School Benefit The Bridge School Benefit is an annual non-profit charity concert held in Mountain View, California, every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concerts are all organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi. Proceeds benefit the Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs.
