I was just introduced to this song by my dear Kim Jaso.
I love it.
Now you can too.
Yesterday I went to MOMA (the museum of modern art) with my photo class, and aside from a stellar Picasso show that I’m totally going back to visit, I kind of found a new love: William Kentridge.
His exhibition, Five Themes, was beyond fantastic. There were a ton of drawings and cartoons, and even a crazy puppet show — it was seriously so great.
If you live in New York City and haven’t already, I highly suggest you hit up MoMA for a little Kentridge time. If you don’t, I demand that you go to this link:
enter the site, and watch the video.
Here are some examples of Kentridge’s work.
So great, right?
Okay okay okay. I know it’s not in my job description to write about music. But I’ve been obsessing a little bit, and I just can’t keep it to myself anymore. I hope all 4 of you that look at this find something valuable.
I’ve been a Butch Walker fan since I stumbled upon and purchased The Rise & Fall of Butch Walker and the Let’s-Go-Out-Tonites at Borders in 2006. Late start to the Butch bandwagon, I know, but nobody’s perfect.
Basically, Walker is a versatility machine. I mean Weight of Her and Mixtape next to Hot Girls in Good Moods and We’re All Going Down? Great.
He produces Avril Lavigne and Pink, then turns around and melts Atlanta with a live, hyper-rocked out Queen Medley.
His latest album, “I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart” (had me at the title), throws string-infused tracks like House of Cards and Pretty Melody alongside edged-out country-esque songs like Days/Months Years. Somehow, it’s totally cohesive.
In your own words, Butch: Damn, damn, damn, I love you.
sidenote: Thanks for playing in LA while I’m in NYC, and NYC while I’m in California. SERIOUSLY?!
