#1: Lady Bird / MGMT / Black Panther

We discuss Greta Gerwig's acutely observed coming-of-age drama Lady Bird starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf and Tracy Letts (2:58); psychedelic synth-poppers MGMT are back with their eclectic and electric new album Little Dark Age (20:36); and from director Ryan Coogler comes Black Panther, the latest in the Marvel superhero stable and an Afro-futurist treat for the senses (32:35). Plus, we discuss the Black Panther soundtrack curated and produced by Kendrick Lamar.
