  • Yuni Wa
1. Yuni Wa - "I Hope You Still Love Me"
Yuni Wa is 17-year-old Little Rock native Princeton Coleman, a talented, omnivorous producer who makes beats, frenetic dance music and Paradise Garage-ready disco edits. Watch this space, etc. 

2. Marvin Berry - "Throwin' Shade"
You can now pre-order the debut full-length from Little Rock's Marvin Berry, the new effort from Andy Warr, Will Boyd, Chris Michaels and Dave Hoffpauir. Here's one of the two tracks they're offering as an album preview. Spend some money, just spend all of it. 

3. Ma'Leak - "Sheen Mine (Relax)"
Ma'Leak, of Little Rock's Trilly Mob and Nostalgic Recordings, is back with a new tape, "Screw Luv," a title that is not, refreshingly, a reference to the Houston DJ but something closer to actual, real-life misanthrope. There are saxophones and "Martin" samples and Ma'Leak offers that he's "trying to make a genre up off the top of my head." 

4. Careful Creature - "Growing"
Here's something new from Benton's Austin Vines, a.k.a. Careful Creature, from a new EP called "Skeleton Daze." It starts out sounding like The Microphones or something, all earthy home-recorded ambiance, but edges into folksy electronica. 

5. Voodoo Phaser - "Window I and II"
More from the engimatic Fayetteville art-rock project Voodoo Phaser, who have introduced some pagan, Led Zeppelin-style esotericism into their lyrics ('as the midwives cradle holy ones," etc.), while growing even more sonically detached and far-out. 

6. CUZ - "C World"
CUZ is the new moniker of Little Rock expat S.L. Jones, who here adds Harry Potter metaphors and post-Kanye dancehall toasting to his repertoire.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count. I was struck by a single sentence over the weekend in a full page of coverage in The New York Times devoted to the killing spree in Arkansas, beginning with a front-page account of the recent flurry of legal filings on pending executions and continuing inside with an interview with Damien Echols, the former death row inmate.

  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
