MUSIC—Listening to La Dispute's new LP, Rooms of the House, is like dragging out albums from your ex-boyfriend's band—good luck putting the wash of emotions that follows into words. The Michigan band's excellent 11 songs traipse through the speak-shout screams of desert heat to an alternating fast-slow trek through piled-high snow. Prepare for a sweaty night of moody, lyrical post-hardcore. CF

FILM—Tom Berninger—amateur filmmaker, metal aficionado, and brother of the National's lead singer—joined the road crew of his big brother's famous band with the intent to also film a documentary about their tour. With Mistaken for Strangers, he ended up with a poignant, hilarious look at sibling rivalry, and one of the funniest and sweetest rock docs of all time. You don't even have to like the National to love it. NL
