Our friend Michael sent this over, and it is precisely why I love YouTube so much. Not only do we get to peruse our favorite year in fashion, 1968, but I now have a new musical obsession: the way out sounds of one Mr. Mort Garson, an electronic composer. ... Read More
These past few weeks have presented two different kinds of swarms: ladybugs, (there is literally one stuck in my hair as I type this,) and skinny attractive people carrying instrument cases who are here touring as part of the CMJ Music Marathon. It’s hard to choose which bands to leave the house for, but a few have such a loud buzz surrounding them that you feel compelled to go sniff them out for yourself. One of those bands is Brunswick, New ... Read More
Edited by David Henry Sterry and R.J. Martin, JR. Soft Skull Press In these dark days of brokedom, who amongst us hasn't lingered a bit too long in the Etc. section of the Craigslist job postings?

Granted, I am not brave enough (or hard up enough) to go through with such an evening's work (just yet), ... Read More

Lars von Trier, the director who so famously tormented Bjork in Dancer in the Dark that she swore she'd quit acting forever, was booed and jeered at at Cannes for Antichrist.

And while, yes, I did laugh at some over von Trier's over-the-top scenes ... Read More

Hello Lovers

BY Web Intern in General

I am from Austin. I miss it a lot. This weekend I get a taste of home. The amazing Hello Lovers perform with a small orchestra in syncopation and moving images on four screens by Lydia Greer. Goes down in Brooklyn at Monkeytown on October 23rd, 24th and 25th. Hello Lovers is different from any band I've ever heard. And, like I said, I am from Austin...so that is saying something. The musicians range from classically trained pasts in fancy conservatories, to ... Read More
