Tonight at work I’m surrounded by thousands of beautiful Persians and though I may not understand a single word being sung it’s very hard to not be moved by the beauty of music. Music is the best tbh. Seeing people sing and dance a long makes me so emotional because I know the feeling. Sometimes stuff is beautiful, ya kno.


Parquet Courts - “Instant Disassembly” [What’s Your Rupture? / Mom + Pop]

Looking forward to queenoflame's coverage of Parquet Courts show at Club Dada in Dallas, TX - June 3rd.

I need to be alone. I need to ponder my shame and my despair in seclusion; I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company.

Treat your ears right. Listen to this track.

Oddisee does it again. Best get on this already, it’s not right you holdin’ out on your ears like ya do.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that the popular video website has been
taken down by the FBI. Wait a minute, what the hell were the FBI and the Department
of Justice doing in New Zealand?!!! Megaupload was becoming extremely popular at a
rapid pace with plans to take on the greedy music corporations and even Youtube. No
wonder they got shut down so fast by the US government.

The internet should remain free and uncensored. Governments should not intervene on
the behalf of corporate interests and at the expense of citizens. The music industry and
other media companies need to rethink their business models and intellectual property
rights laws. They need to adapt to new technologies instead of trying to get them shut
down. Laws like SOPA, PIPA and ACTA that are making their way to Congress are only
looking out for the rights of corporations. In the end, they are really just large companies
trying to squeeze every last dollar that they can out of their customers. They restrict what
is allowed on the internet and for the most part do not help ordinary citizens.

And so here is what you can do. Help out Anonymous by spreading the word about our
media boycott happening throughout the entire month of March. Basically, just don’t
buy any media in March. This includes books, CDs, digital albums, movies,
magazines, DVDs, Blu-rays, video games, vinyl, etc. Copy the Operation Black March poster
and post it around the web.

Video: Band of Horses Big Sur Mini-Doc

It’s been all quiet on the Band of Horses front this year so far, as members Tyler Ramsey and Ryan Monroe have recent solo projects kicking around and promotion behind 2010’s Infinite Arms seems to have slowed down. Perhaps a new record is in the works, but in the meantime, any fan will want to check out this behind-the-scenes look at the North/South Carolina group’s visit to Big Sur, CA that surfaced this week. While the 22-minute featurette centers around and includes live footage from their set at the landmark Henry Miller Library, the best part is a pair of intimate performances filmed alongside Beach Boy Al Jardine at his legendary Red Barn Recording Studio. Another standout is the gorgeously shot take away-style version of “Neighbor,” sung in the dark by torchlight. Enjoy the full mini-doc above.

I had tix to this show, but ended up taking a trip out to portland. such a bummer they went to fucking waste.
