OBSESSIVE COMPULSIONS: FILTER’s Weekly Picks Featuring Top Gun, Phosphorescent + 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:


Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains

The guilty pleasure I don't at all feel guilty about - it's so amazing! Laura Dern. Diane Lane (who was 15 when they started filming - and still so hot today!). The stories behind the making of this movie are as equally entertaining as the movie itself. -- Monique Gilbert


Wet and Reckless

Recently got turned on to this LA-based girl-group and fell in love at first listen. They're playing The Satellite in Silver Lake on Wednesday night, if you're in the area, I highly recommend! -- Jacklyn Arding


TOP GUN on Blu-ray (3D and 2D)

The Blu-ray release of TOP GUN in 3D and 2D arrives next week from Paramount Home Media, soon after the limited theatrical run in select IMAX 3D theaters which began on Friday. It will take your breath away. -- Pat McGuire



Phosphorescent -- "Song for Zula"

I'd never heard anything from Matthew Houck before, but Muchacho is an amazing album through and through. -- Angelica Corona



Some Great Grammy Moments Compacted into GIF form

Why: Highlights of the show for me in general were: fun. actually getting rained on during their performance, Carrie Underwood projection dress, Kelly Clarkson giving an amazing acceptance speech, Prince being, well... Prince, JT and his 25 piece band, LL Cool J lip licks/smacks (we played a drinking game based on this) and Sir Elton and Ed Sheeran kicking the show off.  -- Evan Pierri




Why: I know that I'm almost 20 years too late to this party, but I finally saw Mallrats this weekend and discovered what all the fuss was about. There's nothing better than vintage Kevin Smith. Also this might be Jason Lee's greatest role and most screams per second on film -- Bailey Pennick
