Boomerang Recommends - Jonathan Hatch

The Boomerang Press editor gives you an insight into which unsigned and self-promoted culture, available online, is floating his boat at the moment.

 

Music – Kat Morgan

Beautifully soulful alt-folk from San Francisco, via Virginia and Illinois. Kat’s wonderful voice will put you at ease as she sings about love, loss and beauty. A real beacon of light and hope in this rather bleak world of ours. Look out for her next album, which will hopefully be released by the end of the year. Listen to Lick It Up and tell me you don’t feel lighter afterwards.

For fans of:

Laura Marling, Haim, Shovels and Rope, Eddie Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes

Listen to when:

Needing to relax or be uplifted.

 

Cartoon – Poorly Drawn Lines

You may have seen these hilarious cartoons already, what with artist Reza’s 600k+ Instagram followers. But if you haven’t then you’re missing out on arguably the finest webcomic going at the moment. Brilliantly off-beat and consistently funny, these bi-weekly comics are crucial to any social media feed. Make sure you donate to the Patreon as well.

For fans of:

A little bit of existential dread with their brilliant nonsense.

Read when:

Whenever they come on to your feed. It’ll only take 10 seconds, and it’s almost guaranteed to make you laugh.

 

Podcast – Chapo Trap House

The success story of Patreon, these guys are just about the only voices I need in American Politics (besides Intercepted, which you should also check out) They’ve attracted guests such as Adam Curtis and Rob Delaney, and they are consistently insightful, eye-opening and funny. Definitely not for everyone, but I would recommend to anyone who hates establishment politics as well as Donald Trump. The “Dirtbag Left” are somehow the voice of common sense in these rather troubling times. Start with We Live In The Zone Now, their brilliantly angry post-election episode.

For fans of:

Jeremy Corbyn (affectionately referred to as ‘the boy’) those who despise bad journalism, Bernie Sanders. Don’t listen if you are a big fan of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

Listen to when:

Trying to make sense of the world.
