Posted in Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2014 by dc

Benny & Jolene is a new comedy from movie directing debutant Jamie Adams and it stars Charlotte Ritchie (from C4’s Fresh Meat), alongside Submarine star Craig Roberts.

In the film Ritchie plays Jolene, an up and coming folk singer. The music industry is trying to push her to become more commercial, but her writing partner Benny (Roberts) is firmly resistant. Check out the trailer below:

Benny & Jolene is released in UK cinemas on the 6th June.

Tobacco – Streaker – new video

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2014 by dc

I’m a Tim & Eric fan, and I love Eric Wareheim‘s music videos. His videos for Major Lazer and Beach House were two of my favourites last year (let’s face it music videos are surely the perfect medium to let a surrealist oddball like Wareheim loose on – they’re a great fit).

His latest video for Tobacco sees Eric swop the surreal oddness for just plain old terrifying oddness. The tune itself is horrifying enough (in kind of a good way) but the visuals are like something a lo-fi David Lynch would conjure up on a particularly disturbed evening.

It goes without saying that it’s mildly horrible and not safe for work – check out the video for Streaker below:

Tobacco‘s new album, Ultima II Massage is out on the 13th May.
