Hispanic Film Series – LA ISLA MINIMA (Marshlands)

Elijah Jimenez ’18 writes in:

The Spanish deep South, 1980. A series of brutal murders of adolescent
girls in a remote and forgotten town bring together two disparate
characters – both detectives in the homicide division – to investigate
the cases. With deep divisions in their ideology, detectives Juan and
Pedro must put aside their differences if they are to successfully
hunt down a killer who for years has terrorized a community in the
shadow of a general disregard for women rooted in a misogynistic
past. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Yairms / AlhhlA / Family Planning / Sloopy Coos Canyon

From Angus Macdonald ’16:

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!
