Beyoncé’s iconic Coachella performance coming to Netflix in new doc, ‘Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé’Beyonce Coachella 2018 Live

Over the last two decades, Coachella has hosted some of the most memorable performances in the United States—from Daft Punk‘s legendary headline performance atop their pyramid pulpit to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre putting West Coast rap on their shoulders alongside a living hologram of Tupac. Though, as this year’s edition of the festival inches closer, none among them are fresher in people’s minds than Beyoncé’s unforgettable headlining affair in 2018. The performance, which was initially slated for Coachella 2017, wound up drawing a record number of viewers to Coachella’s live stream on Saturday night of last year’s opening weekend.

Now, the performance is coming to Netflix in a new documentary titled Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé. The new visual details the showstopping 26-song performance, the likes of which featured a massive marching band, a three-song Destiny’s Child reunion, and appearances by the Lemonade singer’s younger sister Solange, and her husband, JAY-Z. Netflix has shared the documentary’s official teaser, which features a voiceover from influential poet Maya Angelou. Homecoming is set to debut on the streaming platform on April 17. See the trailer below.

Fans can now stream M.I.A.’s thought-provoking documentary, ‘MATANGI / MAYA /M.I.A.’M.I.A.

Mathangi Arulpragasam, better known as M.I.A., is much more than meets the eye, and now she has a documentary to show fans why and how. The piece is named MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A, and earlier this year it was shown at Sundance Film Festival. It then made its way to cinemas, and now the Steve Loveridge-directed film is available for rent or purchase.

The documentary takes a look into Arulpragasam’s upbringing in London living as an immigrant family from Sri Lanka. This was during a period of time when there was a large stigma on immigrant families living in the city, and as she dubs it in the trailer, “I lived through a war, came as a refugee, and I’m now a pop star.”

The documentary is also available to stream through Amazon and iTunes.

Here’s where and when to catch Avicii’s ‘True Stories’ documentary in theatersAvicii True Stories Documentary Limited Theatrical Run

On the heels of its recent qualification for Oscar consideration, the much-talked-about “Avicii: True Stories” documentary is headed to theaters at the end of the year in order to complete its eligibility. Now, fans can begin planning their pilgrimage to the emotional doc’s theater debuts, with a limited theatrical run hitting New York City’s Cinema Village December 21 to 27 and LA’s Laemmle theater December 14 through 20.

The documentary’s week-long stints will fulfill the bare minimum Oscar consideration requirements, and in doing so give a brief window for dance music fans to see the project on the big screen. Providing an intimate glimpse into Avicii’s difficult decision to quit touring and painting a stark picture of the pressures of international superstardom, the Levan Tsikurishvili-directed documentary is rumored to make a return to streaming as well. The film was pulled from Netflix in the wake of the artist’s passing and has since taken on additional meaning and poignancy for Avicii fans and the electronic music community at large. For those who would rather take in “True Stories” in a movie theatre experience, the limited NYC and LA runs may be their only shot.

Avicii‘s death almost seven months ago sent shock waves not only through dance music, but throughout the greater music industry at large. The 28-year-old legend’s passing prompted heartfelt tributes, but also ignited dialogue pertaining to the darker sides of the industry: anxiety, depression, brutal touring schedules, and more. Now, Avicii: True Stories’s director has revealed that the documentary that unabashedly delved into the musical and personal life of the departed superstar has qualified for auspicious Oscar consideration.

Containing years of raw and powerful footage from director Levan Tsikurishvili, the documentary was discreetly removed from US Netflix shortly following news of the “Levels” producer’s death.While there’s still no word on whether or not it will be reinstated for streaming, it appears the project will be making a return to the public eye with theatre showings in New York and LA beginning this December. It’s clear the documentary left as big an imprint on its director as it did on viewers who caught it before its prompt departure.

“[The] importance of looking out for one another has never been more important than now,” said Tsikurishvili in an Instagram post. “I do hope that we’ve changed something [for the] better in this industry, especially for the younger generation.”

The Glitch Mob unveil new documentary, ‘Behind The Blade 2.0’

The Glitch Mob unveil new documentary, ‘Behind The Blade 2.0’The Glitch Mob 1 1

 

Relentless sonic experimenters of The Glitch Mob have released a new mini documentary, The Glitch Mob: Behind The Blade 2.0, with the help of collaborators, Alienware, in attempts to shed light on their unique processes and artistic mission statement.

The seven-minute feature traces the band’s enduring efforts to travel a less-trodden musical pathway and discover original ways to advance their narrative. One way The Glitch Mob—who is known for their unfettered ability to blend live instrumentation and intricate electronic production—says they have achieved this one-of-a-kind sonic status is through innovations like Blade 2.0: an unparalleled instrument of the group’s own creation that delivers a categorically immersive live experience in ways such as “creating a visual companion piece with each track.”

The group uses the documentary ultimately to emphasize their intentions to bring people together in a time when “people are more divided than ever,” noting their sheer awe of the unifying effect music can have on people.

“In a day in age when everything is about hit singles and pumping out content, we still believe in the album to tell the deeper and more enriched story,” they said. “Good stories have no expiration date, and that is where we have continued to put our focus.”
