Track of the Day: Sha La Das “Open My Eyes” (2018)

August 7, 2018

There are some record labels that always seem to be on the money. For me, Brooklyn’s Daptone Records are one such label. These are the guys that unleashed the talents of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Charles Bradley onto the world, and reminded listeners of the power of soul and funk. Now they’re […]

August 7, 2018

On Chesil Beach may be a boy-meets-girl story but this one doesn’t play as you would typically expect. The film is an adaption of an Ian McEwan novella and is a heart-wrenching, domestic drama.
