Weekly Picks From the Band

Read of the Week
What It Is Like To Go To War- Karl Mariantes
In 1968, at the age of twenty-three, Karl Marlantes was dropped into the highland jungle of Vietnam, an inexperienced lieutenant in command of a platoon of forty Marines who would live or die by his decisions. Marlantes survived, but like many of his brothers in arms, he has spent the last forty years dealing with his war experience. In What It Is Like to Go to War, Marlantes takes a deeply personal and candid look at what it is like to experience the ordeal of combat, critically examining how we might better prepare our soldiers for war.
Movie of the Week
Contagion is a 2011 medical thriller disaster film directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film has an ensemble cast that includes Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, and Bryan Cranston. Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal indirect contact transmission virus (fomite transmission) that kills within days. As the fast-moving pandemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than does the virus itself. As the virus spreads around the world, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
Album of the Week
tUnE-yArDs - w h o k i l l
w h o k i l l  is the second studio release by Merrill Garbus' experimental solo-project tUnE-yArDs. It was released on 4AD Records on April 19, 2011. The album covers a "formidable range of genres and styles" including acoustic folk, rock, R&B, punk, funk, free jazz & Afro-beat. As on her first album, BiRd-BrAiNs, w h o k i l l relies on heavily layering looped sounds – notably vocals, drums & ukulele – which multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/composer, Garbus, uses to create her richly textured sound.
Website of the Week
