Hey there, dorks. You know how much we love to talk about STAR WARS, so this week’s podcast is extra exciting. We have the guys behind the documentary “The Prequels Strikes Back,” director Bradley Weatherholt, producer Kyle Brodeur and executive producer Alex Kane. The documentary examines one of the most talked about film trilogies, THE PHANTOM MENACE, ATTACK OF THE CLONES and REVENGE OF THE SITH.

If an alt. rock band has captured a spirit of ethereal, Earth mother transcendence, then the gentle, drifting melodies and angelic voice of Iceland’s Sigur Ros could be considered the equivalent of one-ness with the woods. Two vital parts of a sound that’s drawn a cult-like following around the world are Alex Somers and Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson, otherwise known as the band Jónsi and Alex. Having met when both were students at Berklee’s College of Music, the home of so many composers to be, Somers would travel to lifemate Birgisson’s frost-covered home, creating art and albums that were as […]Read On »

Composer Jay Wadley musically schools Logan Lerman’s INDIGNATION – Interview

INDIGNATION soundtrack | ©2016 Nettwerk Records

A time capsule in many, almost outrageous respects, INDIGNATION takes us back to 1951, a year when youths went to college for a stringent education, as opposed to schooling themselves with beer and girls. The decade’s beginning was also marked by a “police action” in Korea and a home front war against sex, whose acts taken with utter casualness now could result in social shaming, or far worse back in The Day. It’s into this Puritanical environment of higher learning that the intellectually strident Marcus (Logan Lerman) tries to find himself at a college in Cleveland, rebelling against his provincially Jewish […]Read On »
