New Music From Fever Ray!

This dropped a few days ago and I totally missed it. New music from Fever Ray, and if what I read is accurate, this track reunites Karin with her brother Olof, effectively making this a The Knife reunion!

10/25 - Tigers Are Not Afraid
10/26 - Bliss
10/27 - Deadstream/Host

Deadstream has been on my radar for a while, but when I saw the trailer at this year's Beyondfest, I felt certain the film wouldn't be for me. Movies that feature influencers/youtubers as unlikeable protagonists who eventually receive a comeuppance don't usually make up for actually having to follow them through the first act-and-a-half. I wrote a bit more extensively about this in my Letterbxd review HERE, but suffice it to say, I ended up really liking this flick. 

Found footage films are a dime a dozen, however, when done right they may be the last corner of Horror capable of truly frightening me. I'm not talking about jump scares or gross-outs, I'm talking about the Magic that occurs when a film truly inspires sustained and palpable fear in me as a viewer. 


After this and the To Hell and Back segment they did for V/H/S/99, I can't wait to see what Joseph and Vanessa Winters do next.


Servant's fourth and final season lands in January, and they've dropped a trailer. I'm posting this, but probably not going to watch it.

Damn, I love this show. Hope it goes out with a "Bang."

The results I'm after will only be achieved through a combination of Will and Emotional detachment/clarity.

Also, only four days left to get in on Grimm's Kickstarter for The Art of the Bound Tarot hardcover art book. I'm throwing down today, you should too if you dig the art on these glorious cards. Back the project HERE.
