Day By Day: Edmonton reggae-dusted folk act Baby Boy & the Earthly Delights have dropped a pleasant, single-shot new video which rather charmingly and symbolically feels like the entire panDirtywork888!demic: stuck in one place, madly moving things around the yard in an effort to keep things interesting. The video also fits in with the famous clutter of Hieronymous Bosch’s famous painting (which he copied numerous times, just to further mess things up), the irony here being this song is basically a call to head out into the river valley with your favourite person and something mind-altering, whatever that is for you. A new, self-titled EP is coming out later this month, stay tuned!

The Penny Black (2020): Just one of 80 films in this year’s NorthwestFest, Go Indie Now called this one the “best indie movie of 2020.” The Penny Black is non-fiction investigative thriller set in L.A. that begins with Will, the estranged son of a conman, his mysterious neighbour and a million-dollar stamp collection. A provocative exploration of Will’s fear and integrity, the documentary noir follows a hunt to find the owner of the collection.
