An excellent little hybrid of noir, thriller, and war-time espionage, Flame & Citron follows two hit men’s journey through Nazi-occupied Denmark. Viva le resistance!

Flame & Citron will also be available On Demand July 29th.

Lily Allen has just released her latest video. “22” attacks the misogyny inherent in the assumption that a woman’s life is over once she’s past the full flower of youth.

Despite being on DFA, despite having a logo that looks like some kind of pseudo-Eg-Banger rip-off, and despite having a name that makes them sound like a bedroom house music project from Sweden, Free Energy is, in fact, heartbreakingly melodic, toe-tapping, Southern-and-glam-inflected rock for stoners in fact and theory. Fans of Big Star, T-Rex, and getting drunk in rusted-out pickup trucks should get very excited.

The State of Jones
by Sally Jenkins and John Stauffer
(Doubleday)
Hardcover, 416 pages, $27.50
Released: 23 June 2009 (US)


The State of Jones is a true story about the South during the Civil War—the real South. Not the South that has been mythologized in novels and movies, but an authentic, hardscrabble place where poor men were forced to fight a rich man’s war for slavery and cotton. In Jones County, Mississippi, a farmer named Newton Knight led his neighbors, white and black alike, in an insurrection against the Confederacy at the height of the Civil War. Knight’s life story mirrors the little-known story of class struggle in the South—and it shatters the image of the Confederacy as a unified front against the Union.”—Doubleday
