A 2019 student recipient of an Artists 360 grant from the Mid-American Arts Alliance, McBroom graduates with a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Arkansas School of Art this May.

    In Southeast Asia's only landlocked country, the Mekong River is a lifeline. From a slow boat heading up the river in Laos, you'll see fishermen working in their boats, riverside farms where bananas grow, and domesticated buffalo lazing. Occasionally a ferry chugs by. From time to time, steps leading to a riverside village become visible on the banks through the foliage. The wind is swift, and the brown fresh water laps up onto the side of the boat.

    Just over 9 miles north of Luang Prabang, a startling aberration appears: five giant concrete pylons rising out of the water.

    Two years after winning the Grammy for best rock album, Cage the Elephant is back with its fifth studio album, Social Cues, out now. But since the band's last album, 2015's Tell Me I'm Pretty, there hasn't been much celebration. The band's members have experienced plenty of loss — from friends dying from overdoses to divorce. Those changes made it into the music of this latest album.
