“The Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami was a big deal back in the ‘90s and early 2000s, and this is an exciting return for him. An English man and a French womanin sun-drenched Tuscany are mistaken for a couple and decide to keep up the pretense. There are beautiful, subdued moments looking at relationships, before the film turns into more of a mystery.”
—Chris McCarroll Manager at Black Dog Video

Slave Ambient
“The real draw of The War on Drugs is Kurt Vile, one of the main songwriters. Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon has called him a guilty pleasure, and you can definitely hear their influence in Vile’s sound. It’s hard to find a straightforward rock record anymore. These guys make big, guitar-driven, anthemic rock songs.”

Queer Spirits
“A. A. Bronson, the only surviving member of the art collective General Idea, is the father of the Queen West art scene. For this book, he and Peter Hobbs organized a series of seance-like rituals in cities across the continent, then captured the moments in words, illustrations  and classic ghost photography. It’s spooky.”
—Derek McCormack Author and staffer at Type Books
