THE FILMS

Digging For Fire (Joe Swanberg | USA | 85 min.)
Digging For Fire is a mature and poignant relationship-adventure film, centered on a couple (Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt) actively trying to reclaim their independence in an attempt to salvage their fracturing marriage. The film begins with the discovery of an old gun and a bone, which triggers something deep inside both the husband and wife, and sends the couple down two very different paths over the course of a weekend. Peppered throughout the film is an assortment of supporting characters (Brie Larson, Sam Rockwell, Anna Kendrick, Orlando Bloom, Jenny Slate and more), each tactfully inserted to serve as both a distraction and a reminder of why their relationship is worth fighting for. Ushered along by a melodic and pulsating score, Digging for Fire is a fascinating character study, brimming with insight and emotion. –S.W.
Digging for Fire opens in theaters August 21st, 2015.

MUSIC

Stolen Jars
Stolen Jars came out of 2011, out of the lead up to graduating High School, out of leaving home. During that year spent recording guitar loops in my bedroom, I was brought back to the punk and ska records I listened to as a kid, and still listened to, brought again to the many indie, art-rock, and pop artists who had opened my eyes to what was possible, to what I liked about music. All of this somehow turned into an album, and then, with Molly three years later, into a second one. Stolen Jars came out of our hometown, out of the growing music scene that somehow cropped up in Montclair, NJ, but it became something more. It became music about leaving home, finding a new one, and trying to remember.
