“Aurganic” are two long-time friends based in Toronto/ New York who originally started in local punk rock bands together. The duos taste changed with the years, they now boast an alternative/ electronic mix using an exciting blend of synths, keys, guitars, bass, and vocals engineered through masterful programming. With a touch of an alternative rock feeling, fans of “Incubus” and “Muse” will see the guys’ new album "Deviations" released on September 24th, 2013 mixed into their favourite playlist.
The Boston Boys are an up and coming mix of classic folk rock with an electric feel, shown in their recent release Keep You Satisfied. Forming as a quartet while attending Berklee in Boston, Massachusetts in 2009, the electric bluegrass style of music is a great fit for any fans of Mumford & Sons.
If you were worried that the first of Breaking Bad's final episodes couldn't possibly live up to the hype created by fans across the globe: well, don't.
When it comes to The Walking Dead: 400 Days, following in the footsteps of greatness can be a tricky thing.
The post-apocalypse has been played out many times. A viral outbreak leading to the collapse of society has become a rather generic standard. Many have tried and some have prevailed; but none quite like The Last of Us.
The dystopian remnants and unforgiving journey show elements of inspiration from the likes of The Road and Children of Men. But most importantly, it shows a very different Naughty Dog to the typecasted creator of adventures like Uncharted or Crash Bandicoot.
Remove all expectations. The Hangover Part III is not the movie you expect.
After an explosive first movie, and a disappointing retread of the same formula (that is unsurprisingly ignored throughout Part III), the Wolfpack returns for its grand finale. This bittersweet conclusion brings with it a mash-up of genres and tone, while avoiding the use of an actual Hangover to drive the plot. It brings a significant amount of change to the formula, which many critics have not been comfortable with.
If you are to view the general consensus, critics have not been the biggest supporters of this change to say the least (average Metacritic score of 38). But while I can understand their problems with this complete departure from their original formula, this is an issue of perception rather than with the film itself.
Star Trek: Into Darkness is a well-executed and thoughtfully written follow up to the 2009 film, with excellent performances and incredible action scenes; sadly, it fizzles out somewhat in the last 20 minutes.
As per usual for UK electronic artist Bonobo, The North Borders starts off extremely well. 'First Fires' punctuates a beautifully understated vocal performance from Grey Reverend with submerged synth droplets and fleeting, glacial, ASMR inducing pads -- all enhanced by a confident and generous allowance for negative space that seems to only come with experience. In terms of perfect intros, it almost stacks up to the double barrelled future classic of Prelude/Kiara from 2010's Black Sands. Unfortunately, in this case there isn't a whole lot of interest that follows.
