“In line with the response from a couple weeks ago, the process for this project has been very aesthetically-minded. So, the idea with “He” was to create a sonic sibling to “She”. That said, there was a real-life guy nearby when this song was created over this past weekend, and he certainly influenced it. The specifics of that aren’t so important, though; it’s better that the listeners form their own meaning.”
This happens to be my dear friend Michael Memory. He has a beautiful voice and a tender heart, making his music full of passion and love. Take a listen to his soft-folk track “Blesses Be,” which you can download for free also! On his Soundcloud. Enjoy. Love.
This is extremely intelligent, sharp and witty, carefree pop music with a retro sensibility. Brad and Trung (TV Girl) are back with their second EP, Benny and the Jetts. I can honestly say this is one of the best and most cohesive releases that I’ve heard all year.
So unbelievably dope. Watch it spread like wildfire.
“I wrote a new song….it sounds like one of your songs.”
Off of Girls’ third record, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the track “Vomit” offers a 6 minute & 23 second sad take on the Girls’ sound we all know. Fuzzed & distorted guitar behind Christopher Owens’ vocals and the dynamic percussion backing the overall upsetting vibes as we’re simply ‘looking for love’.
Some people take being suicidal effortlessly, or for granted. Or they see it as something far too common in their own lives, broadcasting it, publicizing it, and so forth. I do understand that blogging can be a place where they can unleash their feelings and that is acceptable. And, being suicidal or depressed is a serious state of mind, one where it is completely and utterly a person who suffers mental and physical pain. It is a condition where no one should have to ever experience. Though, people do and they will continue to, so long as there are humans on this earth. When people suffer from depression, it is more serious then people take it. Lately, I have been told many, many people suffer these pains, and it’s a common thing. So what if it’s a common thing. Does it make it Ok? Or does it change the fact that people still suffer these horrible, awful, and daily pains? And, on the contrary, people are getting over diagnosed for depression because they don’t know the difference between being sad and depressed. So their family doctor says they should try some medicine out. So then they get more depressed because they got away with it and now they think of themselves as these fucked up people who have to take medicine to be human beings. This is a game and it’s not fun. And it’s especially not fun when I see dumb pictures on Tumblr showing someone wearing a hat that says, “suicidal,” and the person comments and says, “I like that hat.” Are we supposed to think this person is suicidal? Do they want us to think they are suicidal? All I am saying is that depression needs to be treated not played with. People with it aren’t failures. People who really suffer are real people who have real problems. These are who make up our society. Whether it’s a common thing or not, that doesn’t mean anything at all. Everyone who knows this knows that it’s not a fun game.
