It’s a 12-hour drive from Texas to Alabama, but when you take the time to sit with (in?) football, etc.'s new album Corner, it shares so much of the hazy, summer sentiment of Katie Crutchfield’s Ivy Tripp. That kind of unhurried, clear vision of a record is surprising, considering it was actually produced in five days with minimal overdubs. But yet, holed up in J Robbins’ Magpie Cage in Baltimore, Texan trio football, etc. have channeled some of that Waxahatchee Lakeside shimmer into this album. Indeed,...

On top of all this, Tamblyn also stars in Can You Forgive Her?, an off-Broadway play that opened on May 23. And just this past weekend, Tamblyn paired up with literary rock star Roxane Gay to host...

Tramps, currently available on Netflix, is a sweet, slight, and short film — the actual runtime is barely 80 minutes — that was seemingly made for streaming on a lazy afternoon. A fresh spin on the Roman Holiday/Before Sunrise model, Tramps follows two beautiful young people who meet by chance, walk around a city, and fall in love within the span of a day and night. Where Tramps diverges is the incorporation of a heist/con element gone wrong, which is responsible for bringing these two...

It tells the story of a character named Navita Milagros Negrón, a teen girl from the streets adrift in a rapidly gentrifying city. Segarra spoke...
