A true transcontinental affair, Spun, the latest LP by the Greek folk musician Moa Bones (aka Dimitris Aronis), reeks of dust, tumbleweeds, and the cawing of desert crows. From the sound of his music, Moa Bones sounds like he was born and raised in a John Ford film, but his actual home is Greece, where he crafts his distinct take on American music. Spun is being billed as containing “extracts of a five-year mini autobiography”; for one such extract, check out the dusky noir of “Take It All Away”, which you can stream exclusively below.

The zig-zag of the guitar riffs on “Daylights Gone”, the newest tune by the rising Seattle outfit Motopony, show that this young sextet has a musical trick or two up their sleeves. The fact that intricate guitar work is the focal point of the track is somewhat unsurprising, given that the band has a healthy arsenal of three guitarists to its name—an atypical feature for a rock band in the present day. “Daylights Gone” features on Motopony’s forthcoming sophomore outing, Welcome You, which was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Heartless Bastards, Trail of Dead) and mixed by Guy Massey (Spirtualized, Manic Street Preachers, Ed Sheeran).

When the two men announce their intentions to leave their wives and be with each other, Grace and Frankie’s world gets taken for a spin, and no small one, at that.

French-Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi is best known for her role as the creator of Persepolis (2000), the brilliant graphic novel that would later go on to be made into a stellar animated film of the same name in 2007. With The Voices, she remains as inventive as ever, although things are much different here than they are with the autobiographical Persepolis.

Following the first teaser for Spectre, the latest installment of the James Bond series, the studio has now made available a video giving a brief glance behind the scenes of the flick’s cars, undoubtedly an integral part of any Bond picture. (“Integral” in that there are things that need to be made to blow up, cars ranking chiefly among them.) Below you can view the video, which shows some of the high-tech, exclusively-designed cars that will be seen in Daniel Craig’s latest turn as the MI6 rogue.
