Hey there, dorks. In this week’s podcast, we talk about Sunday night’s Golden Globe nominations. LA LA LAND won all the awards, but Meryl Streep won the night. We’re going to talk about our favorite and least favorite moments of the show, and share how the winners affect our Oscar picks, because we take our Oscar predictions VERY SERIOUSLY. Then Smith talks about the ridiculous exercise of giving awards to artistic achievements as though they were trophies at the end of a baseball season. You can’t score LA LA LAND or MANCHESTER BY THE SEA like box scores. He’s got some interesting […]Read On »

ARRIVAL soundtrack | ©2016 Deutsche Grammophon

THE BEST SCORES OF 2016 ARRIVAL  (Johann Johannsson / Deutsche Grammophon) An Icelander whose intensely psychological, yet still melodically accessible modernist scores like PRISONERS and SICARIO speak in alien languages of subsonic strings and nerve-chilling brass at last gets his actual close encounter as he translates the Rorschach Test language of obelisk / monolith dwelling inter-dimensional deities here. Johannsson brilliantly captures both a sense of wonder and fear with beholding the mind-boggling, verbally-scrambled unknown as whale cry motifs join with alternately moaning and chattering voices, backed by a strong orchestral sound that serves as a powerful universal musical translator in a way that’s […]Read On »
