An interview with theKey

Mercer-based modern rock group theKey recently won the Georgia Lottery All Access Music Search. I sat down with guitarist Jonathan Wisdom to discuss the contest, musical influences and a new record.

‘Black Swan’ is a masterpiece

5/5 Bear Claws “Black Swan” is a slow roll into the deranged mind of a twentysomething ballet perfectionist with a little bit of hypersexuality thrown into the mix. That description is basically the best one that I can bestow on a film, and “Black Swan” hits all of my buttons in really specific ...

Floco’s Modern Life

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="322" caption="Promo shot of Floco Torres"][/caption] At approximately 2:52 p.m. every Friday afternoon, I feel it. By “it” I’m referring to that campus-wide anxiety “to do.” You know what I mean. You don’t really care what you do. You just want ...

Here there be Little Dragon

[caption id="attachment_660" align="aligncenter" width="228" caption="A promo shot for Little Dragon"] [/caption] The Masquerade is not my favorite venue.

As the frontman for Atlanta-based rock act Manchester Orchestra, his band’s brand of intricate, stripped-down and highly charged rock leads to a multitude of critical ...

The four best things of 2010

I know that best of lists are kind of a year-end tradition. Pitchfork, The AV Club, and virtually every other pop culture critic in the world likes to post a list at the end of the year, recapping their top choices for that particular 12 month period. They're always in list form, and they're always ...

Breaking New Year resolutions

New Year’s Day is viewed as a fresh start, a chance to begin again, so people make big com- mitments to themselves about things like getting healthier or more organized. But why do we promise ourselves things we can’t, and don’t, keep? This year, instead of making resolu- tions of grandeur, let’s ...

True Grit Film Review

True Grit is Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest film, an adaption of Charles Portis’ novel of the same name. And it’s awesome. Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) is determined to avenge her father’s murder by hunting down Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), the murderer. She hires U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn ...
