“The Walking Dead” has created a new television genre

Tyler Hicks | Contributing Writer The Walking Dead has never been easy to watch, but how much misery can we handle? Sunday’s season six finale, “Last Day on Earth,” confirmed what I had suspected for a long time: no show on television aims to shock, disgust and depress its audience quite like this series. At first, the blood and guts was mostly fun and games, and most of us probably

The Dose: What DC can learn from ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Preston Mitchell | Staff Writer @presto_mitch If you saw “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” last weekend, you were probably disappointed. Sitting at a 28 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, it took the already mediocre “Man of Steel” and crammed several DC superheroes into its flawed universe. The result is an over-bloated, overlong and overly maudlin crossover that juggled too many plots on top of occasionally laugh-out-loud bad dialogue. All brought to

SXSW: Weathers

Meagan Sullivan | Visuals Editor @meagansullivan_ [df-gallery url=”http://ntdaily.com/gallery/sxsw-weathers/”] For a band that has one song on the Internet, Weathers is doing extremely well in the music industry. The four-piece band from Southern California just finished a string of shows at Austin’s SXSW, opened for Brookyn rockers Drowners at one of those shows and boasts around 11,000 followers on both Facebook and Twitter. Oh, and they achieved all of this before

The Dose: Hip-hop evolves with vintage sounds of new rapper A-F-R-O

Kyle Martin | Staff Writer @Kyle_Martin35 Arguably the fastest-evolving genre in the music world right now, hip-hop is blowing up. And emerging from behind the scenes is Jamal Gutierrez, also known as A-F-R-O (All Flows Reach Out). The 18-year-old California native has a cutting-edge flow that would make anyone think his songs are fake (they’re not). When he was 17, rapper and hip-hop guru R.A. the Rugged Man picked him

The Dose: Edgefest 2016 entering national territory

Morgan Sullivan | Staff Writer @sadsquadch Positioned before most of the major festivals, Edgefest 26 will serve as a sort of crash-course into the 2016 festival season. The Edgefest lineup has a little bit of something for everyone: featuring headliners like The 1975 and Chvrches, who will both be touring the festival circuit this summer. As the fest is now pulling in major acts year after year, it’s dipping its

The Dose: ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ a testament to college movies of old

Harrison Long | Opinion Editor @HarrisonGLong Having been hailed as the “spiritual sequel” to 1993’s cult hit “Dazed and Confused,” it isn’t too difficult to understand the skepticism many held anticipating Richard Linklater’s latest film about teenage debauchery. How do you take a period-piece as uniquely raunchy and hilarious as “Dazed” and ever hope to replicate it? Do you follow the model of the previous film or break off into

The Dose: Pimp, pimp, hooray! New Kendrick Lamar project rocks

Preston Mitchell | Staff Writer @presto_mitch If last year in music belonged to anyone, it was Kendrick Lamar. His masterful album, “To Pimp A Butterfly,” summated his sociopolitical views into a single, relatable narrative. Thanks to positive reception, the Grammy winner is now a modern rap legend. Kendrick is back with a compilation of “Butterfly” demo tracks titled “Untitled Unmastered.” Fortunately for junkies that can’t get enough Kendrick, this mixtape delivers

The Dose: #FU2016 finds its steel on ‘House of Cards’ new season

Dalton LaFerney | @daltonlaferney Matt Payne | @MattePaper Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Season 4 of “House of Cards.” It’s rare to see the President Frank Underwood squirm on the defensive, but when it happens, the ensuing hellfire is a thing of beauty. After leaving millions of viewers on a cruel cliffhanger for more than a year, Netflix’s own “House of Cards” returned for a fourth season on the,

The Dose: Violent Femmes’ ‘We Can Do Anything’ shows they can’t do ‘anything’

Tyler Hicks | Contributing Writer @MightyasaPen Since their now-classic self-titled debut album in 1983, the Violent Femmes have experimented with their sound, released several compilations and even gone country for a short spell. But “Blister in the Sun” and “Gone Daddy Gone” remain their most popular jams, and their new album won’t change that. Sixteen years of breakups, reunions, lawsuits and new additions have led to this moment, and while the aptly

The Dose: The 1975’s new album offers a fresh and ever-inviting sound

Morgan Sullivan | Staff Writer @sadsquadch Sophomore albums are tricky. Fans want new music, but they don’t want a big change in sound. After experiencing immense success from its self-titled album, fans and other musicians expected a lot from Manchester indie rock band The 1975. What people didn’t expect was a completely different look and sound for its second album, “I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So
