Song of the Week: Miranda Lee Richards - "7th Ray"

2 December 2015 4:34 AM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Miranda Lee Richards, one of my favorite L.A.-based singer-songwriters, was in town a few weeks ago playing songs from the inspired Echoes of the Dreamtime, her third studio album and first release in more than six years. "7th Ray," the first track and single from said album, is an atmospheric, mid-tempo, psychedelic-folk-rock rumination on love and life. Wearing her love like heaven, layered electric and acoustic guitars weave in and out of the nuanced mix and then suddenly a Mellotron adds yet another delectable dollop of color to keep you hitting your repeat key. She's currently on a West Coast tour with the Dandy Warhols, making stops in L.A., San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland. For fans of Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell alike. For a full list of tour dates, please visit her website MirandaLeeRichards.com.

50 fabulous documentary films, covering hard politics through to music, money and films that never were...

Thanks to streaming services such as Netflix, we’ve never had better access to documentaries. A whole new audience can discover that these real life stories are just as thrilling, entertaining, and incredible as the latest big-budget blockbuster. What’s more, they’re all true too. But with a new found glut of them comes the ever more impossible choice, what’s worth your time? Below is my pick of the 50 best modern feature length documentaries.

I’ve defined modern as being from 2000 onwards, which means some of the greatest documentaries ever made will not feature here. I’m looking at you Hoop Dreams.

50. McConkey (2013)

Shane McConkey was an extreme skier and Base jumper who lived life on the edge, and very much to the full. »

7 Unforgettable Teen TV Show Theme Songs You Should Still Listen to, Ranked

10 November 2015 7:36 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Show of hands if you spent a lot of college listening to Remy Zero or Paula Cole on your Winamp?

Okay, you can put your hands down. (We can't see them.) But, we can see why you opened up your ears to the aforementioned artists -- they blessed us with two of the best teen TV show theme songs in the history of time.

From "Smallville's" apt "Save Me," to "I Don't Want to Wait" from "Dawson's Creek," we've assembled more memorable themes you shouldn't feel embarrassed adding to your Spotify.

7. "My So-Called Life Theme" From "My So-Called Life" (1994 - 1995)

If high-school angst and nostalgia had theme music, this would be it. No lyrics, just all the feels.

6. 'Where You Lead" From "Gilmore Girls" (2000 - 2007)

The Gilmores arguably have the most "fall as f**k" theme ever made. Which probably explains why we never fast-forward through it during our binge watching sessions. »

Hear John Malkovich's Terrifying Ric Ocasek Collab

18 September 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Malkovich: actor, director, portal vessel, sonic explorer. The performer has teamed with an eclectic group of musicians – including Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, the Cars' Ric Ocasek, Omd, Young the Giant, Dweezil Zappa and the Dandy Warhols – to create Like a Puppet Show, a Record Store Day Black Friday vinyl exclusive. The album finds Malkovich reciting classical musician Eric Alexandrakis' version of Plato's Allegory of the Cave over original material composed and produced by Alexandrakis, paired with bizarre photos of Malkovich taken by Sandro.

10 best music documentaries: Bob Dylan, Madonna, Radiohead, more

30 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Asif Kapadia's breathtaking documentary Amy is already wowing critics and fans, so its official release this week makes it a good a time to be reminded of some other great music documentaries.

There's David Byrne's giant suit and Bob Dylan's oversize shades. Two films from Martin Scorsese but just one from Julien Temple. Punk rockers and pop superstars. We count through ten leading music documentaries below.

10. The Filth and The Fury (2000)

Julien Temple's first Sex Pistols film The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle was Malcolm McLaren's make-it-up-as-you-go-along take on things. Twenty years on the same director gave the group the right to reply, including Sid Vicious with some beyond-the-grave archive footage.

9. In Bed with Madonna (1991)

Known as Madonna: Truth or Dare in the Us, this absurdly naughty chronicle of the Queen of Pop's infamous 'Blond Ambition' tour is arguably her greatest on-screen moment. Bitchiness, bottle-fellating »

Russell Brand cancels South by Southwest keynote address

13 March 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Russell Brand has cancelled his keynote address at the South by Southwest music and arts festival.

The comedian had been scheduled to open up the festival tonight (March 13) in Austin, ahead of the premiere of new documentary Brand: A Second Coming.

Director Ondi Timoner's documentary feature chronicles Brand's growing interest in political causes and social issues over the last few years.

Brand was scheduled to introduce the movie at the Paramount Theatre at 6.30pm local time tonight, but has now penned a lengthy statement to explain his discomfort with the film.

"[Timoner] wanted creative control and to make a documentary about me and my transition from a relatively conventional celebrity to whatever the hell it is I am now," he wrote.

"You'd think a narcissist would like nothing more than talking about themselves and their 'rags to riches', 'hard luck' story but actually, it felt like, to me, my life »
