Wayne’s 4 x 2: ‘The Wilds’, ‘The Furnace’, and MORE!

In 1972, a crack commando was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. This man promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground.

The series, while being primarily a survival story, is also a coming of age story as it examines issues of competition, sexuality, and many other facets of a young adult’s life. The Wilds is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.

Album: Hey What Low

The latest album from the band Mr. Massingham described as “one the most consistently great bands”, Low. Their thirteenth album in twenty-seven years, Hey What is quietly hypnotic with crunchy digital distortion and great harmonies. “With Low you never know what you’re going to get, but its always satisfying” W. Massingham (2021). Hey What is available on Spotify.
