Tingle: Edmonton-launched Samantha Schultz has a plucky, head-bopping new single out, destined to be one of your summer favourites. Tingle blends modern pop with R&B — nice Hammond organ in there — and an extremely infectious chorus, describing the funny feeling she gets when thinking about her husband-percussionist, Trey Macias. “I’ve had this song completed for a few years now,” says Schultz, “and am so excited for its feel-good energy to finally be shared just in time for this highly anticipated summer.” Side note, Schultz’s likeness will be painted on a utility box in Sherman Oaks, Calif., by artist Laishan Ito — the image standing up against anti-Asian hate. Schultz is pleased to be part of this project which honours her Filipina heritage.

Abandoned Alberta: I was thrilled to pick Joe Chowaniec’s book of the same name from Wee Book Inn a couple months back — the stories that accompany his images of our province’s abandoned architecture are just as good as his photos, and the shot of Northlands Coliseum is a sharp and clever point that there is literally nothing we won’t neglect around here, even one of the most important centres of pride and community history in the country where Wayne Gretzky became a planetary icon. Mostly in rural settings, Chowaniec’s obsessive eye also fits in nicely with Jude Griebel’s Barn Skull at AGA — see the preview of that in tomorrow’s paper — and in the meantime, welcome back to the museum in person!

Night of the Living Dead (1968): Metro Cinema’s first, in-person screening in months is a hilarious wink at how I’m sure many people behind the counters feel about crowds rushing back in, hungry for food and services. Or maybe that’s just a coincidence — either way, why not celebrate the return to “normal” with this scary, suffocating, paranoid horror movie classic, also full of bonus racial tension? Metro Cinema is the best.
