Prince played La Zona Rosa last night. Sounds like it was incredible.


Can’t even tell you how much I wish I could have been there.

immutableinscrutable:

I had a long call with people I work with, and I had ideas about finding my way to new listeners. Having this excellent second-act career, as a middle-aged artist, making singer-songwriter music that some Soul Coughing fans don’t like—and, pointedly, vice-versa—I want to get in front of the…

Great point. I know my dad, for one, loves discovering new artists, still buys new music, and even goes to shows once in a while. And he’s 59.

Immutable/Inscrutable: Letter to @NYMag about @GrizzlyBear's finances.

immutableinscrutable:

Heya New York Magazine,

It’s weird that Nitsuh Abebe’s piece about Grizzly Bear’s finances didn’t mention publishing, aka songwriting royalties. For a band that sells 220,000, that’s good money—for the songwriter. You didn’t mention if they split it, or if the individual songwriters kept the…

It’s here!! The first video from the collaboration between St Vincent and David Byrne!! I love it, predictably — especially David’s little rump-shakin’.

If you were wondering why more women didn’t vote for the pitchfork poll, it’s probably because even successful, respected female music critics are still treated like dumb girls who wandered into a record store on accident because they thought it was a Claire’s boutique.
Imagine if every unorthodox opinion about music you had, every time you tried to deviate from the party line, people attributed it not to your personal taste or even your trollish personality, but to sheer ignorance.

This is hardly limited to women, but it’s a lot more virulent when women write about this stuff. Ugh.

Mansplaining at its most musical!

Jon Hamm shares his iPod with us, Sinead O'Connor and all

  • AV Club: Did you fall for Stevie Nicks or Christine McVie?
  • Jon Hamm: I mean, forget about it. Stevie Nicks, you know? There’s a lot of scarves. She had a cool voice. And I just love Lindsey Buckingham’s work on “What Up With That?” What can I say?

Radiohead wouldn't exist without early major-label funding. The future won't bring new Radioheads.

immutableinscrutable:

In the wake of recent future-of-music discussions—Louis CK’s direct-ticketing move, which may indeed revolutionize touring for artists with that large of an audience, and the Emily White/All Songs Considered/David Lowery thing—I’ve been having arguments about record labels and money.

I was kind…

Got A Girl Crush On: France Gall and the other Yé-Yé Girls.

It all started when Mrs. Draper performed her rendition of Gillian Hill’s Zou Bisou Bisou. Shortly after, Wes Anderson puts out yet another amazing soundtrack lodging François Hardy’s Le Temps De L’amour in everyone’s (including us here at GAGC) heads. 

If you, too, are a sucker for this Yé-Yé Girl Revival, you’ll most likely fall for the likes of France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb, Sylvie VartenPussy CatSheila, Les Intrigantes, Chantal GoyaPussy Cat and (perhaps not a true yé-yé girl, but I’ll use any excuse I can to squeeze in) my all-time biggest girl crush, Anna.

Yeeeess ma’am! I’ve been yé-yé crazy this summer.

John Peel's Record Collection Goes Online

Between the massively influential BBC DJ’s vinyl vault and Alan Lomax’s archive, this is turning out to be an awesome year to hear music online. 

Wow!

Not sure how I managed to not listen to this Future Bible Heroes album since college, but it was a mistake. Rectifying now.

This song is truly one of the most perfect songs. Listening to it this morning made me tear up a little bit because it was so absolutely perfect. (The tears might also be nostalgia tears since my high school/college boyfriend included this on a mix tape for me. I think he actually might have been my one real summer, but it had mostly to do with our ages and where we were in our lives — mostly carefree.)

octagons fall from the sun
as we run through the grass
let weathermen blether
this forecast is o’ercast
and the beach boys?
hell, they might as well play “winter wonderland”
summer, my ass
