Spectrum Check

I had plenty of stuff up at Spectrum Culture this week, with probably the most notable being my review of the film that earned Best Director honors at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It’s probably among the best of the year, and the performance of lead actress Emayatzy Corinealdi is definitely among the year’s best.

I also adhered to my previously established role as the person on staff who reviews offshoots of Sleater-Kinney. In this instance, it’s the second effort from the band that bears Corin Tucker’s name. It’s solid enough, but it doesn’t manage to recall the style of the earlier band while also simultaneously forging off in energizing new directions the way that Carrie Brownstein’s Wild Flag does.

There was also this week’s List Inconsequential, in which I got to expound on the grocery store item that’s become my favorite road trip food, nicely appropriate given that the article went up the day before I embarked on a major journey.

There were also a couple of other interesting larger pieces which I contributed to, but I’ll save those until next week’s Spectrum Check.
