Arcanum (Part 3) - Musk Ox, Woodfall (2014)

This album remains one of the most musically inspiring albums of the year.  There is just something about the way Nathanaël Larochette composes that has such a dark earthy baeuty. 

Whatever it may lack in heavy metal thunder or ravishing grimness, Musk Ox more than makes up for with its richness in atmosphere and emotion, created in tune with the natural world and its terrifying beauty.

Onward to Perdóndaris - Bong, Beyond Ancient Space (2011)

"I do not know how long we lingered there watching the sunrise on those miles of amethyst. And it is strange that that great and famous wonder did not move me more than it did, but my mind was dazzled by the fame of it and my eyes were actually dazzled by the blaze, and as often happens I thought more of little things and remember watching the daylight in the solitary sapphire that Saranoora had and that she wore upon her finger in a ring. Then, the dawn wind being all about her, she said that she was cold and turned back into the ivory palace. And I feared that we might never meet again, for time moves differently over the Lands of Dream than over the fields we know; like ocean-currents going different ways and bearing drifting ships."

Lord Dunsany - The Avenger of Perdóndaris

In 1957, the Italian government commissioned Salvador Dalí to create 100 watercolors to illustrate Dante’s Divine Comedy, to coincide with the 700th anniversary of the famed poet’s birth. They quickly regretted their choice when the Italian public balked at having such an honor bestowed on a Spaniard. The project was canceled, but Dalí held up his end of the bargain anyway, creating images that run the gamut from gorgeous and soft to frankly terrifying.

Head Against The Sky - Moss Eisley, Our Ladies of Independent Rock (2003)

Man this band rocked before Lucasfilm made them change their name.  Young Blaine listened to the three songs that they submitted to my best friends brothers record label, Pop Vox Music, many many times. 

In fact listening to these tracks again made me realize that this band was the sonic precursor to Warpaint.  That’s also probably why I like that band as much as I do as well.

The early oughts were wild man.

Quote IconI feel like it’s not about the music anymore—it’s about how many friends you have on Facebook and your Instagram pictures. I hate that. I feel so bad for the talented new bands that are working so hard, and they have to fight with these monsters where it’s all about the appearance, the way you look, the amount of posts you did this month. I don’t want to be a part of that—going to a festival and taking a selfie on stage and all the EDM shit. I feel like it’s such bad publicity for music and for true artists, and I’ll try to fight as hard as I can to not be like that.

And suddenly I have a respect for m83 that I never had before.  Solid.
