May The 4th Be With You

Happy May 4th all!!!!

Spotify made this awesome playlist. Pretty much includes all the music I will be listening to all day long.

The Hope Six Demolition Project by PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey’s new album is finally out!!!!!

Let England Shake and Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea are two of my favorite albums (both by PJ Harvey), so I am very excited that she is coming out with another album.

Why haven't I been listening to Lana Del Rey sooner?

I’ve heard plenty of Lana Del Rey songs, like “Summertime Sadness, Video Games,” etc. but I never really sat down and listened to her music.

Her first LP (and EP) is pretty good and very catchy – but her album ‘Ultraviolence’ is pure art. Her new album ‘Honeymoon’ is also fantastic. I highly recommend her music.

Jack White retiring from live music?

Jack White says he is retiring from live music? I saw him three times, once with the White Stripes, and twice during his solo tour. They were some of the worst live shows I have ever seen. I personally think he’s a great recording artist but I think he’s a terrible live performer. I’m not sad about this at all. Just my personal opinion though.

I read this blog from NME.com about how sad it is that he isn’t going to perform live for a while. Obviously I do not agree with it, but I found it interesting anyway. You can read about it here.
