A.T.M: Tanlines, Michael Vasquez and Tale of Tales

By: WJB

This week for A.T.M. we have Tanlines’ latest LP, an exhibition by artist Michael Vasquez and a film by Italian writer and director, Matteo Garrone.

Highlights by Tanlines

For their sophomore album, synth-duo, Tanlines made a mock Netflix site where each track has distinct artwork with a brief description of the song and its meaning.

Hightlights is said to be influenced by the bands time spent on the road while touring for their 2012 release, Mixed Emotions.  According to a press release, the LP “sees them reaching “for the sounds of 90’s New York hip-hop drums, Detroit techno synths, and lots and lots of guitars.”

Tale of Tales by director Matteo Garrone

With much gained attention after its recent screening at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Tale of Tales is based on a series of fairy tales by 17th century Italian author Giambattista Basile.

The film has been the talk of the festival mainly due in part by a scene where Salma Hayek, who plays a jealous queen, appears repulsively eating the raw heart of some fantasy beast.  This scene has almost become the icon for the film.

Tale of Tales debuted in Italy May 14 with U.K. and U.S. dates coming soon thereafter.
