An update on arts and entertainment news around the state.

Max Recordings has reissued Jason Morphew’s “Holding Merle Haggard” on thick 140-gram vinyl. The album includes a collection of songs that were recorded between Hot Springs and New Haven, Conn., in 1995 on a four-track. Local portraitist Baxter Knowlton supplied the Merle Haggard painting for the cover.

Fledgling Colorado independent label Rod Records recently released dreamfast’s “The No Coast” EP. The album includes re-recordings of old favorites “Room 606” and “No Coast Love Song.” The Fayetteville-based band, which spent several years in Little Rock, kicks off a regional tour with a show at the Pontiac in Springdale on Thursday, June 14.

The American Princes head to New York this weekend to record their third album. Chuck Brody, who’s worked with the Beastie Boys and Wu-Tang, will be producing. He first contacted at the band last year during the CMJ Music Festival in New York. Hundreds and hundreds of bands play and all had an mp3 on the festival’s site. Brody told the band that he’d listened to every act and that they were his favorite.

The Ozark Foothills FilmFest is accepting entries for its seventh annual festival, to be held March 28 through April 6, 2008.
