Monday Musings: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jason Isbell, and More

Monday Musings returns with a movie trailer and some music to check out. And let’s not forget to thank all of those who have served and are currently serving today. Happy Memorial Day!

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer

The third trailer has been released for Spider-Man: Homecoming. I recently did a Spidey filled podcast with Jason Tate on Welcome To Geekdom and we plan to do another one once this movie is out. I’m looking forward to it and hope it’s one of the better movies slated for the summer.

Songs We Love: Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit, ‘If We Were Vampires’

“If We Were Vampires” is a quiet moment within the powerful whole of The Nashville Sound, an album that shows Isbell in graceful lockstep with his seasoned band. The album’s most effective moments are self-confrontations, sometimes clearly autobiographical and sometimes shaped as fictions.

Last week, NPR streamed “If We Were Vampires” by Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit. His new album will be out soon and it’s well worth a listen. This song is as good of a place as any to start.

Paramore – After Laughter

The latest Paramore album is quite a jam. If you haven’t listened to it yet, I highly recommend doing so.
