It is hard to believe that Jane Campion has not made a full length feature film since 2003’s In the Cut but it is great to see her returning to her romantic roots with the biography of Keats, here played by Ben Whishaw. This looks to be every bit as visually-stunning and well-made as her classic The Piano. Welcome back, Jane!

Two years after Beth Arentsen debuted her solo album, Sap (2007), the NYC-based singer-songwriter is preparing a follow-up EP entitled Nicer. The six-song set, produced by Arentsen with Lenae Harris and mixed by Eric Yoder, will drop next month and feature all new original material, including “Gossip Queen”, “Earthquake”, and “He Knows (My Heart)”.


This summer, Arentsen has debuted many of the new songs in a series of concerts held throughout New York entitled HopeStock: Music to Bailout Your Soul. Presented by Nona Hendryx and Spirit Sings, the next HopeStock show is slated for Sunday, July 26th at S.O.B.‘s in lower Manhattan and will feature a roster of artists that includes Arentsen, along with Maya Azucena, Bobby Long, iLLspoKinN (of Spokinn Movement), and a special appearance by Nona Hendryx with her band of Gypsies. At the show, Arentsen will also reunite with her former bass player in P-1, Tim Deuchler, along with her trio members Lenae Harris (cello) and Brian Wolfe (drums).


Later in August, Beth Arentsen will open for Ari Hest at Comcast Songwriters in the Park in Red Bank, NJ.


In this clip, Arentsen sings “He Knows (My Heart)” from a recent, sold-out appearance at Joe’s Pub in NYC.
