Documentarian Lucy Walker’s Waste Land follows Brazilian artist Vik Muniz as he travels to Rio de Janeiro’s notorious Jardim Gramacho dump to photograph the people who make their living scavenging through the refuse. With such great material on hand, Walker has opted for a simplistically inspirational story, however, and Waste Land merely skims the surface rather than digging deeper.

One Lamb half , Lou Rhodes releases her third album, 'One Good Thing' through Motion Audio on the 14th March 2010.

Manchester's most cherished and acclaimed female soul returns with her most brutally raw record to date.

'One Good Thing' disarmingly documents the last two years of Lou's life. With exquisite attention to detail, it was recorded over an intensive two-week period. This third album, which follows 2006's Mercury Prize nominated, 'Beloved One', and 2007's frank follow-up, 'Bloom', was recorded solely in live takes with minimal editing and overdubs to reflect the brutal rawness of its subject matter.

"Most of the music I'm inspired by was either recorded years ago or uses similar old-school analogue techniques. If I had a reference point for the recording of this record it'd be stuff like Nick Drake's 'Five Leaves Left' or Nico's 'Chelsea Girl'." - Lou Rhodes

Teaser trailer for TRIMPIN: THE SOUND OF INVENTION, a new documentary feature now touring film festivals in the US, South America, and Europe!

The film focuses on a wildly creative composer/inventor/engineer/artist, and features his collaboration with the Kronos Quartet, his construction of a 60-foot tower of electric guitars, and his experiments designing a 'perpetual motion' machine in a glass foundry.

We think that Beach House is defraying quite a lot in its introduction, with Victoria Legrand suggesting that she's welcoming all to the "magic that is Daytrotter." It gives us an idea though. It's never seemed more appropriate than right now to borrow her thought of magic and reverse it, throwing it back at the absolutely MAGICAL group from Baltimore, led by Legrand and Alex Scally. These two, and their traveling group of musicians, have quickly become one of the most unbelievable acts of the saints or else just something holy and unexplainable.

Coalition of The Willing is a film that discusses how we can use new internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change. Through analyses of swarm activity and social revolution, ‘Coalition of the Willing’ makes a compelling case for the new online activism and explains how to bring the fight against global warming to the people. As the film tackles the subject of online activism, we decided that the logical home for ‘Coalition of The Willing’ is here online.

The film will be released on this site in 6 staggered ‘waves’ approximately 2 weeks apart, with 4-5 film sections uploaded in each wave.
