OBSESSIVE COMPULSIONS: FILTER’s Weekly Picks Featuring Borough Market, “The Room” + More


FILTER likes music. There's no hiding it. We also like our own opinions a whole bunch, so once a week we give the masses a fleeting glimpse into our selective stereos and Internet browsers to let them see firsthand what fuels our endless devotion. We like to think of it as community service. We're selfless like that. So without further ado, here are the official, inarguable, objectively good FILTER Weekly Picks—providing everything from new LPs you should be spinning to the latest good-fer-you videos. Yeah, we're good at what we do:


Castel Gabriel Helmet

Why: If I win the lottery, I'm totally getting one. -- Kyle Rogers



The Reflections, Limerence

Why: Been excited about this new album for a while now. Plus, their press photo has a cat in it. Double win. -- Angelica Corona



Savages, Silence Yourself

Why: Straight up rockin. Out tomorrow on Matador. Scoop it up. -- Wes Martin



The Room

Why: I finally caught a midnight screening of The Room, Tommy Wiseau's masterpiece. Take it from the infamous 18-second "Flower Shop" scene: this is one of the finest pieces of cinema ever created. -- Pat McGuire




Why: Best android phone . (period) -- Alan Miller




Why: One of the most overlooked shoe gaze bands from the 90s. My Bloody Valentine got all the credit, but Medicine were one of the original great Creation bands…. -- Alan Sartirana



Borough Market

Why: London is one of the greatest cities in the world and I'm so thrilled to go back tomorrow, but mostly I'm excited about the possibility of visiting south London's greatest farmers market ever: Borough Market. Beyond the grilled cheese wench and the countless cups of cider you can drink right from the barrel, there is literally an area called Wine Wharf. An entire wharf full of wine. Enough said? I think so. -- Bailey Pennick
