Yes! You Talk Too Fast

Welcome to my life.
Here's where I post other peoples hard work, and claim credit for it.

Paying money to see a band in a club and having them cancel through something that seems like a clear fuck-you is doubtlessly infuriating. And that— as John Cage or Marina Abramović or Justice Yeldham or anyone whose idea of performance upsets our idea of what we’re paying to see has affirmed— is OK. If Friday’s cancelled Death Grips show had been scheduled for the Museum of Modern Art, it would’ve been subtitled ‘The Artist Isn’t Present’, and it would have been documented in art journals. Performance art is not about getting anything; it’s about being gotten.

Death Grips have surprisingly impressed me with this.

So here’s my plan for once I finish uni at the end of this semester.
I’ll shoot over to Taiwan, teach English, learn Mandarin, party, and completely forget about Melbourne for a year or two.

Dune Rats - Red Light Green Light (Green Version)

 

It’s bands like this that make me proud to be Australian.
This video’s probably old news to everyone now, but these two deserve all the publicity they’ve got from it. 

RDGLDGRN - I Love Lamp

 

I don’t normally get into this style of music too much, but this is amazing. A mate linked me to this, with the caption:
"these guys are gon be like the black keys of chiddy bang".

I have no idea what he means by that, but he could be right.

Why has it taken me so long to find this?

TOKiMONSTA - Stigmatizing Sex


This girl!

I think this track/album is going to get me through a lot of assignments this year.

Charli XCX - I’ll Never Know

Tanlines - Brothers (Joshua Ryan Remix)
I got onto this track through Stereogum a few days ago. Since I downloaded it, it’s been on almost constant repeat on my iPod.
I’ve checked out the original track too, which is also pretty sweet (the video clip is amazing, it’s an interactive clip which kept me entertained for a while). Tanlines have their debut album coming out sometime in the next few months, so I’m a little interested in how that is.

Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and Tyler, the Creator - Rella

Okay, I haven’t posted much in a while, and I’m also a little late with this video, but I’m sure there’s still a few people that haven’t seen it.

I watched it yesterday, and I know it’s early, but I’m calling “best music video of the year”. The clip is that good, that after watching it a few times I still can’t remember any parts of the actual song, only the video.

Get on it.
