Sufjan Stevens is back with ‘No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross’. “It’s not really trying to say anything new, or prove anything, or innovate. It feels artless, which is a good thing. This is not my art project; this is my life.” Keep an ear out for the air conditioner underneath his voice.

 

Sleater-Kinney have released a new video for ‘A New Wave’:

Weekly Soundtrack

A 1999 buzz here, ‘This Love’ by Craig Armstrong, featuring vocals from Liz Fraser, came out in 1999 and was included on the Cruel Intentions soundtrack.

 

Joni Mitchell with some crazy vocal acrobatics with ‘My Old Man’. Total bitch of a song to sing. Props.

 

A lady was playing ‘Only You’ on the piano in the Powerscourt Centre today, reminding me of the incredibly out of tune but super fun and enthusiasm-filled version by my secondary school music class. We’d “bah dah, bah dah” upstairs on the bus all the way home. Music à la messers.

 

This is beautiful. Listen out for the spray tan.
