“An unforgettable death march to the rotting core of American culture.”
— Time Out New York

Entertainment is a twisted, existential comedic masterwork.”
— Indiewire

More big news for Entertainment. After a brilliant showing at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW, Magnolia Pictures has announced today that it is acquiring all North American rights to Rick Alverson’s film starring Gregg Turkington, Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. The film was written by Alverson, Turkington and Tim Heidecker and produced by Ryan Zacarias, Ryan Lough, George Rush, Brooke Bernard, Rick Alverson, Patrick Hibler and Alex Lipschultz and Jagjaguwar’s Chris Swanson also performed the role of Music Supervisor. The picture is a Jagjaguwar, Nomadic Independence and Made Bed Production in association with Arts + Labor, Autumn Productions, Epic Pictures Group and Complex Corporation.

Rick Alverson said, “We’re very honored to partner with Magnolia. It’s humbling to be in the company of so many bold, innovative independent films.”

About Entertainment

In ENTERTAINMENT, an aging comedian (Gregg Turkington) tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, novelty tourist attractions, and vain attempts to reach his es-tranged daughter. By day, he slogs through the barren landscape, inadvertently alienating every acquaintance. At night, he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters. In Alverson’s hallucinatory fugue, Gregg Turkington stars as The Co-median, caught in a struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation, occasionally challenged by an unexpected cast of characters played by Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. Acquisition title: Cinetic. 98m.

Jagjaguwar and Other Indiana Music Businesses Respond to the Indiana RFRA

Jagjaguwar co-signed this statement today:

We are a group of independent record labels and music businesses based in Indiana. We are deeply disappointed with the recent passage of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the message that it sends to those both in and out of our state. At the very least, this is a poorly written and unnecessary piece of legislation. At the worst, it provides a path to legal discrimination.

We join the chorus of Indiana residents and businesses calling on Governor Mike Pence and the Indiana General Assembly to repeal the IRFRA. Additionally, we appeal to our state government leaders to enact legislation clearly protecting the civil liberties of LGBT individuals to assure that none of our employees or neighbors may be discriminated against due to sexual orientation or gender identity.

Some businesses and individuals have taken action to suspend or reduce participation in Indiana’s economy. While this sort of action is well-intended to place pressure on government leaders to repeal or fix this law, we feel an isolationist approach can sometimes be misguided. As music companies, we cherish the power which music and art can have in promoting social progress. We believe cultural events can be a great opportunity to put a glaring spotlight on injustice. We will continue to proudly call Indiana home, and we call on others in the arts community to address this issue constructively. To musicians with events scheduled in Indiana — please follow through and perform. While canceling shows is one way to protest, a greater statement can be made by coming here and using your art to influence the policy debate that is occurring locally. You can insist that the venue you play publicly states that they will not discriminate under any circumstances. If the venue won’t do that, rebook your show with another venue that will. Your performance can be a rally. We need your support locally.

We welcome other music businesses in Indiana to co-sign this letter with us: http://www.musicforindiana.org/

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Black Mountain To Release 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Of Self-Titled Debut June 23rd, Announce Tour Dates

It’s only a cliché because it’s true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain’s self-titled debut album is just such a record, its roots leading twisting paths back into the past, while always sounding like ‘now’, like a future still to come. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada, far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain’s debut grew from skeletal sessions cut by Stephen McBean and Joshua Wells. Here was a new classic rock, its reference points arcane and clear, its sound fresh, unfamiliar and irresistible. Savor the compact, spacey brilliance of that cosmic, heavy and subtle debut album, remastered and expanded now with a raft of delicious bonus tracks scavenged from the Black Mountain Army archives. Black Mountain (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) is out June 23rd on Jagjaguwar. Watch the album trailer above or on our YouTube page.

The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is a double-LP including 8 bonus tracks on limited edition colored vinyl, using foil-print on the first pressing of the litho-wrap gatefold packaging. The records themselves are limited-edition color matched grey double vinyl, as well as standard black vinyl and double disc CD, which are also available with limited edition foil-printing. It includes the original classic album paired with the Druganaut 12″ plus 4 previously unreleased tracks.

Preorder the 10th anniv. edition via Jagjaguwar, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store.
