An Elderly Bowling-Alley Employee, A Goth-Chick, and a Ten Year Old Become the Next Great Band In Diane Coffee’s Hilarious New Music Video

By Andrew Smith

Sean Flemming is on his musical game. Aside from playing drums in the legendary rock group, Foxygen, he also writes solo music under the name, Diane Coffee.  Flemming has just released a music video for his newest single, entitled “Everyday.”

In the video, Flemming assembles a band of misfits, which includes an elderly bowling-alley employee, a goth-girl, and a ten year old. Through weeks of ridiculous training exercises (the bass player lifts pin-sized weights with each finger), the group rises to local fame as they pull off an epic performance at the community center.

“Eveyyday” sounds like it was ripped straight from the 1970s, and shows influence of groups like The Supremes and Donovan. You can pick up Diane Coffee’s upcoming album on September 4th through the Western Vinyl label.

Jurassic World: Nostalgia Overload

By Justin Leoni

da32b5ce-68a0-334a-8e55-7c34e7baf3d5 It is hard to believe that the first Jurassic Park film came out over twenty years ago (naturally making me feel old).  So when it was announced there would be a new installment in the series, I was skeptical that it could live up to the hype.  I can say with confidence after seeing the film last weekend that the anticipation and hype is VERY real. The film acts a sequel to the 93′ film which probably doesn’t make much sense as there was “The Lost World” and “Jurassic Park 3.” Fans and skeptics alike agreed that the sequels went astray from the formula that made the first movie so memorable.

Director Colin Trevorrow leaned on advice from original director Steven Spielberg to hit us 90’s lovers right in the feels. The film takes place at the original site of the first park, only with modern day technology. We see a familiar face (B.D. Wong) in the beginning of the movie as we are shown the DNA lab in which the biggest/baddest dinosaurs are cooked up for the Jurassic World masses. The movie is similar to the original film as we follow two young boys (Zach & Gray) spending their Christmas break at Jurassic World, a luxury resort while visiting their Aunt Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard). Midway through the movie it is brought to the attention of Jurassic World officials  that their beast like creation (Indominus Rex) has escaped, leaving them little time to evacuate the island which is full of guests. This doesn’t sound familiar does it?

Owen Grady (played by Chris Pratt) is one of the main characters in Jurassic World and plays a dinosaur researcher who happens to train velocriraptors.  That’s right…CHRIS PRATT TRAINS RAPTORS. The madness of that thought will drive you wild until you see the movie yourself. Trust me when I say that spending the little extra dough to see it in IMAX is worth every cent. Check out this trailer from Jurassic World below!

Kacey Musgraves keeps it country with release of ‘Pageant Material’

By Rachelle French

Kacey Musgraves knows what she’s doing. The release of her second album, Pageant Material showcases her growth as an artist, shifting from the contemporary sound of her Grammy award-winning 2013 album, Same Trailer, Different Park, while capturing new and classic western elements in the new record.

Musgraves is known for tackling controversial issues lyrically. Same-sex marriage, marijuana, smoking and drinking are discussed without casting a shadow on her sweet disposition.

Pageant Material is a compilation of Musgraves’ small town southern observations. Having already established who she is as an artist with Same Trailer, Different Park, Kacey has finally gotten a chance to put out an honest and truly country record.

From Willie Nelson-esque tracks like ‘High Time’ and ‘Fine’, to the dream-like small town girl themes in ‘Dimestore Cowgirl’, Musgraves blends classic sounds and new ideas seamlessly.

Throughout the album, Musgraves clings tightly to themes of “doing her own thing”. “Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy,” is the hook contained in ‘Biscuits’, the album’s debut single. “I’d rather lose for what I am than win for what I ain’t,” she sings on the title track. “Nobody’s everybody’s favorite,” she continues on ‘Cup of Tea’.

Kacey’s lyrics are brutally honest and intelligent. The concepts that she ties into her classic western sound have the power to reshape the country music industry — and I bet they will.
