Miles Kane of The Last Shadow Puppets discusses his new solo album, Coup De Grace
"Being on stage is my favorite thing ever. [It's] where I come alive."
When he's not playing in The Last Shadow Puppets with Alex Turner, Miles Kane pursues his own truth, blending rock and roll nostalgia with the coiled, fuzzed-out severity of today's lo-fi garage rock movement. With the release of his third solo album, he's exploring new sounds but focusing on the same thing; namely, producing good music and cutting out the fluff. Coup De Grace makes a rare double move, in that it deviates from Kane's prior work but is still uniquely his. We were lucky enough to catch him before he embarks on a European tour and talked with him about his new musical direction, his influences, and his creative process during this Popdust exclusive interview.

The classic He-Man meme video stands the test of time as an iconic example of queer-coded art.
In December of 2005, Brokeback Mountain shifted queer-coded cinema into the mainstream.
Prior to 2005, "New Queer Cinema"––a term coined by film scholar B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound to define the queer-themed independent film movement, which focused on rejecting heteronormativity and concentrated on LGBTQ protagonists––existed on the fringe of the film world. It's worth noting that while the movement primarily refers to the boom in independent LGBTQ films from 1992 onwards, queer cinema existed for many years prior, albeit without a proper name. But regardless of nomenclature, New Queer Cinema was typically designated for niche audiences, relegated to arthouse showings at best.
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
