Heartbreak fuels Dirty Projectors' new album

The end of a long relationship demolishes our sense of who we are and our place in the world. Emotions run high. Hate turns into sadness, then morphs into regret. Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors gives us a tour of these emotions on the new, self-titled Dirty Projectors album. Following his split from Amber Coffman, a former lover and member of Dirty Projectors, Longstreth’s agony, remorse and nostalgia come crashing through with the power of a cement truck barreling down the highway at 100 mph.

Books in the land of Trump

If you’re anything like me, you’ve already disengaged from Trump’s news cycle. Fried by the dreary doublethink, the anxiety provoking ineptitude, the sense that something is fundamentally ajar that none of us are qualified to fix, I’ve made the conscious decision to step back. When confronted with a TV set, instead of tuning in to Colbert I reflexively watch sitcoms, ESPN, even Monday Night Raw. Anything else.
