Grimes Tried to Make a Soundtrack for the End of the World. The Result Is Surprisingly Timid

This is how the human race ends: with the shallow clang of metal on metal, a squalling screech, the heavy stomp and throb of percussion.

Since then, several other players have entered the steaming space—including Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO Go. The newest player in the marketplace might just permanently change the game. Disney+ came on to the scene in late 2019 with much fanfare. I signed up for the service from Day 1 and have enjoyed it thus far. Besides my entertainment, I’ve learned a f...
