“Dan Auerbach was responsible for helping make one of the better albums of 2008, and Keep It Hid is already a contender in 2009. Should we go ahead and call him the current King of the Hill? Based on all available evidence, he’s that guy, and the competition for his crown is not particularly close at this time.”—Sean Murphy

Lots of happenings with a perennial PopMatters favorite Curumin. The Brazilian rapper returns Northern climes for a raft of concert appearances (after the jump), including a gig at the Montreal Jazz Festival on July 11. He was also recently featured on National Geographic’s Geo Sessions and we have the videos here.

Plot summary: Werner Herzog directs a remake of the 1992 film by Abel Ferrara. Ferrara isn’t too happy about it either, as he said at Cannes last year, “As far as remakes go, ... I wish these people die in Hell. I hope they’re all in the same streetcar, and it blows up.”
