A plane crashes deep within the Himalayas. Its five surviving passengers are stranded and without hope, until a mysterious crowd materializes in the snow and whisks them away to a hidden utopia. Lavish sets and a mammoth scope spelled a production riddled with difficulties, foreshadowing the rigor behind the stunning recent digital restoration decades in the making.
3 or 4 bands, depending on how you count! Yairms and AlhhlA just released a split record that is weird and fun and normal and great. It’s also super rocking to boot! Family Planning is “thorny runs, hazy chords, free-floating grooves, infinitesimal spasms, dribs and drabs of this and that. A baby, an ugly pig’s head, a dancing monster, a yellow raincoat, a high grav forty, and a thousand cakes.” Sloopy Coos Canyon is Erin McGrath 16, Nicole RJ ’16, and (sometimes) Luke Macdona ’17. They sound the way that the color orange looks!
