    Lates: One of this Italian horror master's very best works, Deep Red features Blow-Up's Hemmings as a jazz pianist in Rome, who is suspected of having committed a murder before becoming a target himself. Argento's florid camerawork and spooky Gremlin music are in ample evidence here.

    The award-winning writer of science fiction and fantasy novels, including what the movie Annihilation was based on, reads from his work. His stories are compelling, his anthologies exceptional, and his newest is the novel called Borne – available wherever fine books are sold.

    Bebel Gilberto

    Bebel Gilberto’s coy and soothing bossa nova descends from her father João Gilberto, diva mother Miúcha (Heloísa Buarque de Hollanda), and singing uncle Chico Buarque de Hollanda. As such, the Brazilian prodigy started making waves by 7 when she debuted on her mother’s first solo album. In 1991 she moved to New York, adding electro and dance rhythms to the traditional samba and jazz of her native homeland.

    The Pack A.D., Futon Blonde

    Thanks to Becky Black’s raucous fretwork, heaving vocal grit, and Maya Miller’s bludgeoning drum mechanics, this Canadian duo continues to wreak club havoc on 2017’s politically charged Dollhouse. From the distorted onslaught of “Not Alright,” utopia march of “Does It Feel Good,” and six-stringed steel thump found on the title track, it’s a one-two punch the Vancouver duo has perfected since 2008 debut Funeral Mixtape.
