  Maybe people have a point when they complain that too many artists rely on too much technology these days, particularly when playing live. Perhaps it’s a matter of economics or artistic control, but after seeing a band like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, music fans likely wish every act filled the stage with musicians instead of using sequencers … Read More

GhostHouse/Witchery Scream Factory Double Feature On the whole Scream Factory does a pretty good job of picking titles to polish up and release on Blu-ray. Occasionally, one of these double features will contain some really baffling choices; as seems to be the case with this most recent disc.
