  4. Brilliant Michigan grindcore band Cloud Rat stream new album, play ChicagoRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 30 | Chicago Reader

    Despite my fondness for loud, obnoxious music, I often have a hard time warming up to grindcore-usually because I can't hear enough of what's happening. Combine hyperactive distorted guitars with frenzied, pistoning drums, and in most cases the shape and direction of the riffs ends up lost.

  6. Governor Rauner's Democratic allies roll a Trojan Horse into townRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 30 | Chicago Reader

    While I was preoccupied with Chuy Garcia's race against Mayor Rahm, Governor Rauner fired the opening shots in his crusade against the poor and the infirm. I'm referring to Governor Bruce's assault on anything remotely resembling a state-funded program for people who're not as fabulously wealthy as the governor and his top donors .

  10. A London detective chases modern-day slavers in the UK thriller HyenaRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 30 | Chicago Reader

    Gerard Johnson, who wrote and directed the moody crime drama Hyena , claims to have spent over three years researching human trafficking and police corruption in London, and his effort shows in the film's immersive presentation of both subjects. Johnson's camera is rarely more than a few feet away from his characters; intimations of the knotty system they inhabit - a crisscrossed network of corrupt cops, immigrant crime families, informants, and modern-day slaves - enter the frame from all directions.

In short, Carl Akeley was a badass.

  17. Learning to like Death Cab for Cutie, one song at a timeRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Apr 29 | Chicago Reader

    When it comes to Ben Gibbard projects I gravitate toward the Postal Service , in part because for one reason or another Death Cab for Cutie never really did it for me. I certainly understand the group's appeal-mannered, cozy indie rock that's bookish enough to be "smart" but not intellectual in a way that could get in the way of mass acceptance.
