Utah's baby bust

SALT LAKE CITY — Not even Utah is having enough babies. America’s most religious state, dominated by a religion whose adherents famously have large broods, has seen its birth rate drop parallel to that in the rest of U.S. In fact, Utah’s baby bust has been steeper than the rest of the country’s.

A Michigan family confronts police injustice, drugs and gender identity in 'North By Current'

Some of the most compelling documentaries begin as one thing and end up something else entirely. Just ask Angelo Madsen Minax, whose “North By Current” began as an investigation surrounding the death of his 2-year-old niece. The feature, which plays Thursday at the Detroit Film Theatre as part of the Freep Film Festival, eventually turned into a portrait of his family, himself included, over nearly five years.

From knocking on doors to Facebook posts: Missionary work moves online

Are You Still Your Brother’s Keeper?

No time for a well-crafted post this morning: I’m on the run, having unsuccessfully attempted to enter Canada. I am now officially a “foreign national denied entry to Canada” (that’s what the form they gave me says). I jumped through all the hoops, filled out their online application, had my passport (no passport: go home), had the right kind of Covid test (wrong test: go home), but it was three days old without clear time stamps on the results page so technically not within their 72-hour window. So: Go home. At least the guy with the badge and the gun didn’t threaten me with a $5000 fine for attempting to enter Canada with an expired test. That’s what they do to Canadians.

Low’s expansion of distortion and dissonance broadens its audience

When the Duluth, Minnesota, Mormon couple Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker launched the band Low in the 1990s, it found an immediate cult following thanks to slow time signatures and exquisite vocal harmonies. Within its first decade, Low was adding eerie effects suggesting an undercurrent of anxiety. They recruited producer B.J. Burton to provide extra distortion to Low’s most recent albums, culminating in the new Hey What (Sub Pop). The effect is a heavenly choir delivering scary portents of the Four Horsemen. What’s surprising is the more avant-garde Low gets, the more popular it becomes.
