Young Magic met in Brooklyn back in 2007, but like typical itchy-footed Aussies, founding members Isaac Emmanuel and Michael Italia spent the next few years travelling through Europe and the Americas. In the meantime, Indonesia-born Melati Melay held down the fort in NYC. In 2011 the trio found themselves reunited in the same zip code and raring to record together. Given the band’s globetrotting tendencies, it makes sense that the resulting debut, Melt, sounded like a melting pot of influences from around the world, ranging from psychedelia to shoegaze, trip hop and world music. Italia has since left the band, and the now-duo has reigned in the psych tendencies of their earlier work in favour of a more electronics-heavy sound on their new album. While there’s no shortage of acts pairing sultry female vocals with dystopian beats these days, Young Magic avoid many of what some would consider the pitfalls of their synth-pop peers, and at its best, Breathing Statues breathes life into an oft cold and somewhat lifeless genre.

LIFE ACCRODING TO AGFA 1992
(החיים על פי אגפא/ Ha-Chayim Al-Pi Agfa)
Directed by Assi Dayan
In Hebrew with English subtitles
This is a crazy and beautiful Israeli cult film which is set in some of the most downbeat districts of Tel Aviv. The movie starts out quite fragmented, while we jump around watching the lives of several unconnected groups of people, whose destiny is made clear when they all end up one night at a local dive bar called Barbie run by two women who are looking for love in a love-less world.
The film marvelously captures the wild and bittersweet mood of a late-night bar, where everyone is on edge... an atmosphere with a worn-out and frazzled sense of poetry. There is a melancholic pianist rolling out the tunes as all of the pent-up frustrations of a society that is collapsing come to a head in this small location. Considered today to be a cult masterpiece, this film was the first of a black comedy trilogy by visionary filmmaker-poet Assi Dayan, who died recently (2 months ago).
This will be an outrageously rare cinema screening of this riveting piece of celluloid. A must.

Met Protomartyr en TV Wonder
Detroit's Protomartyr make violence, betrayal and corruption pretty. On their 2013 debut, distorted scissor punches and spirally BPMs made up an uncompromising sonic anger with clearly defined punk strokes. At the start of what now seems to have been a breaking point for new guitar music with fists, they were already a head above the rest. But this year's speedy follow-up, Under Color of Official Right, proves the US five-piece can filter generations of rage and social toxicity into compositions with post-punk innovativeness, wide dynamics and razor sharp clarity. This is a band with a point you're happy to be speared on.
