"Times Square," the latest single from Destroyer's upcoming album Poison Season, has a trippy new stop-motion video. It feels like hitting a bowl with Wallace and Gromit. As singer-songwriter Dan Bejar croons to the screen, small, pot-smoking creatures made of moss, a chewing-gum monster, and a human brain with googly eyes dance laconically. Despite the song's title, New York's iconic hub of tourists and taxis barely appears in the video. The playful opening guitar recalls the Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots," but the mix of sultry-sad saxophones, jangly pianos, and Bejar's singular voice is completely Destroyer. "The writing on the wall / Isn't writing at all / Just forces of nature / In love with the weather station." »

Agents of Shield, Season 2, Episode 16: “Afterlife”
Written by Craig Titley
Directed by Kevin Hooks
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC
After Bobbi and Gonzalez’s big hero moment and Skye’s escape in “One Door Closes”, “Afterlife” is set up to be a bit of a let-down, or at least a slowdown by comparison. There are plenty of good hero moments, like the return of Deathlok, and Fitz-Simmons pulling the wool over Bobbi’s eyes. Even with these moments, the episode’s focus on Skye slows everything down to introduce Afterlife and fit in lots of exposition from Lincoln, played by guest star Luke Mitchell (The Tomorrow People).
It is difficult to gauge Mitchell’s performance as Lincoln based only on “Afterlife”, because as Skye’s guide in this world, most of his dialogue is exposition. The large majority of his scenes with Skye are just Skye walking »
