Arcade Fire and Mavis Staples collaborated on a new single, all proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). I heard it for the first time this morning, and while I didn’t love it at first listen it has hooked itself into my brain ever since (especially the ending, chills down my spine).
I still prefer to buy music on CD or vinyl than to download singles, but I may have to look into buying this one (anyone know a service that lets you buy singles, without having to download some app and going through a big sign-up rigmarole? (I just want an MP3 I can stick on my phone, I don’t want to have to get involved with iTunes just for one song!)
I literally cannot get this guy's whole 'Morphology' album out of my head. It's been in there for the entire week. Shame I couldn't find my favourite song from the album on youtube, but here are two of the others.
These guys are getting old but they still don't make 'em much cooler than the boys from ZZ Top. And the women in this video...goodness. I like fat girls and that'll never change, but they've got some women on this video that are pretty easy on the eyes. I also like those old hot rods.
