MUSIC | The sisters explore their freshest, most raw sound yet on their latest release
Double the vocals, double the songwriting capabilities, double the pleasure: this is a formula that has never steered the Shook Twins, Katelyn and Laurie, wrong before.
On their latest release, the indie folk musicians go deep and explore the full-body of their emotions, from uncertainty to happiness to heartbreak. Blending their almost identical vocal talents together, the sisters create a sound that will echo through the depths of your soul long after you've finished listening. Small but mighty, the new material is a fierce statement of minimalism and femininity, and will hopefully tide fans over until the sisters finish making stops on their fall tour.
Shook Twins are exclusively premiering 2 on Popdust. Listen to the new tracks below!
Katelyn Shook from the group also spoke with Popdust about the release and why it's their most exciting work yet.
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.

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.
