Because Songs Matter


That there interweb is big and vast and sometimes it’s easy to miss some of the awesome that happens on it. So here is an attempt to link to some of the other awesome that’s happening out there:

  • R.E.M. called it quits this week and there has already been no shortage of homages to the band and their discography. Personally, I was never a huge R.E.M. fan but I did find these two articles interesting. They were the first two articles ever written about the band and that kind of history is fascinating to me. I also find the news a tad convenient as the band has “their first career-spanning retrospectivecoming out in November. Now, I’m not saying this is all a stunt to boost sales…I’m just saying I wouldn’t be exceedingly surprised to see a reunion tour in a couple of years.

And that’s it folks. Have a fun, safe weekend and try not to get hit by any falling satellites.

    That Alabama Shakes video is something that should be playing in the background of the best ‘kicking alcoholism’ montage of all time.

    Her voice gets my heart all up in knots.

    Holy Shit! The Alabama Shakes. I guess I’ve been sleeping on them. I don’t pay much attention to the truckers’ tour dates or their openers but I wish I had heard TAS before today.
