According to Stereogum, the song could have been from any point in her career.
Lana Del Rey has a ton of demos and unreleased songs floating around on the internet, as most pop stars do, and recently a previously unheard one called “Super Movie” has surfaced. As Idolator points out, fans are speculating that this one was recorded sometime during theHoneymoon sessions, though it also contains similar lyrics to a 2010 demo called “On Our Way,” so the jury is still out on that. Really, the gentle and unadorned acoustic track could be from any point in LDR’s career, which is to say that it is very good. Hear it below.

You can also stream 'Displacement,' off 'Stage Four' below via Soundcloud. According to Stereogum,
"Losing a loved one to any drawn-out terminal disease results in a lot of mixed emotions: helplessness, anger, relief, fear, an unfathomable grief. Touché Amoré vocalist Jeremy Bolm lost his mother to cancer, and Stage Four — the band’s upcoming new album — is a powerful document that attempts to navigate that loss and come to terms with a relationship and person that have now ceased to exist. In a lot of ways, the album reminds me of Japanese Breakfast’s Psychopomp, another album from this year that dealt with a similar loss."

Connecticut-based Landing released their newest album, ‘Third Sight,’ this past June. This album follows a slew of previous releases featuring cool experimental vibes, as well as more traditional releases. Frontman Aaron Snow spoke about the band’s record label, El Paraiso, an upcoming LP, and the pressing process.
“El Paraiso contacted us last year about doing something for their Impetus Series, which is a series based on improvisational music. Improvisation is a big part of what we do, so we got straight to work. Initial sessions were built upon, layered, and edited and eventually turned into the four songs on the record!"
Landing will be releasing an LP this fall; ‘Complekt.’ This LP will offer a different sound than the hazy shoegaze based feel that ‘Third Sight’ has.
“‘Complekt’ represents a lot more sides to what we do. There's some drone fuzz rock, some weird synth tryyps, some shoegazey stuff, etc. ‘Third Sight’ is more loose and improvisational whereas ‘Complekt,’ although it has moments that'd fit on ‘Third Sight,’ is more varied and representative of Landing, I think.”
‘Third Sight’ is an incredibly mellow departure, which focuses on an experimental sound, without feeling out of place. The album feels new, yet familiar, which is something Landing does incredibly well. ‘Third Sight’ bridges the weirdness between experimentation and tradition in a cohesive product that is exceedingly easy to listen to.
Stream ‘Third Sight’ via Soundcloud below, and pick up your own copy from Bandcamp.

Rozwell Kid, Posture & The Grizzly, Losing Season, Perennial @ The Eclectic (Willimantic CT) 6/24 By Zack Gomez
On June 24th, I went to see Rozwell Kid (representing West Virginia) at The Eclectic, a comfy mid-sized ballroom in downtown Willimantic which has hosted art shows, workshops and local music since its inception early this year. It also has UV lights on the ceiling (a fact I was unaware of when I decided to wear a neon top and bright blue shorts) and a sound system best described as "overkill".
Perennial (an experimental, art-flavored punk band) opened the show. Their style of vocal delivery leaned pretty far towards hardcore, while their music was driven hard by fuzzy guitars, synthesizers and punchy drums in a haphazard style that reminded me favorably of Thee Oh Sees.
After a quick break, which I spent exploring the venue, alt-rock act Losing Season kicked off a set made up mostly of new music. Their last release (a 7" called "Spin", cut in Connecticut at Silver Bullet Studios) came out two years ago. I was glad to be introduced to them through their latest and greatest material.
The third band was the only one on the bill I'd seen before (at Crunch House in the Year of the Goth 2014). I was familiar with Posture & The Grizzly's sound and I was all too happy to see them again, this time with fresh music off their 2016 LP "I Am Satan".
Headlining act Rozwell Kid has been described to me as "for fans of Weezer". As luck would have it, I am a Weezer fan, and Rozwell Kid hit the spot. Their set was tight, energetic and charming, complete with unruly mops of hair and wild stage antics. At the end of the show, the entire band froze in place, allowing time for applause from an audience that, unfortunately, didn't feel fully connected. I was disappointed by the lack of energy and hype for such a rockin' band, but otherwise I loved the show!
