I’m trying to digest a Thanksgiving feast of new music right now (Bill Callahan, Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Broken Bells, The Kills, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Bass Drum of Death and more!), so this 2 song LP lends itself to approachability. It’s great stuff–download it. I’ll go ahead and post the songs below.

I had the opportunity to travel to Africa for the first time in my life, to Tangier, Morrocco, back at the end of February. It was a trip that I can’t even begin to put into words. The amount of time we spent getting hassled as Americans, along with the flash riot we witnessed our last evening will be unforgettable. I was able to capture some pretty cool photographs even though I rarely had my camera exposed and ready-to-shoot, since my DSLR was an obvious tourist accessory visible to the bargain-hungry market owners. It’s taken me a while now to create a post about this trip, since this isn’t a travel blog and I wanted to stay-in-line with it being in some way aesthetically pleasing to our viewers. Hopefully you guys can gain some inspiration from these incredible colors and textures that I discovered around the city. (And please click on the pictures to enlarge them)
A new, unique sound and an original music video to boot. I have a ton of homework here as I come closer to the end of my studies in Spain, but I think I will have to spend a little time researching this phenomenon that is Tune-Yards. Please watch, and you will enjoy.
There is so much to love about this mysterious r&b group – The-Dream and xx hybrid sound, the sexy album cover, the Beach House sample on this song, the fact that they are giving the mixtape away for FREE – check them out.
Found this lovely image here. More of these beautiful paintings can be found here.
I don’t know if you guys will find this as comical as me. I think it’s hilarious.
