Bon Iver's Cryptic 22

Bon Iver Finally Released a New Album, But Why Was it Released on September 30th?

After a 4-year long hiatus, presumably living up the hipster lifestyle, Bon Iver has released their newest Album 22, A Million to instant critical acclaim. The album marks a stylistic change for the group from their folk roots to experimental/electronic alternative rock. The 35 minuet long LP is a beautiful collection of a refreshing new sound; Singer/Songwriter Justin Vernon leads in 10 equally interesting tracks which he describes is about “finding yourself.” The whole album is an interesting work to digest and interpret. From the often vauge lyrics, down to the way the tracks are stylized ( 10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄), the whole album feels like something we haven’t fully decoded yet. Needless to say, 4 or 5 listens in, I’m still discovering what Bon Iver is trying to portray in this short, but expansive work. What is most curious to me is the timing of 22, A Million’s release.

57th Grammy Awards

Grammy Predictions

2015's Grammy Awards is going to one of the first in my life where I am actually versed in what is going on. This past year, I have really committed to broadening my musical horizons, and I ended up purchasing some of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year. A more appropriate title to this post would have been "Grammy Wining Wish List", but I will try to keep my biases to a minimum. Here is a selected list of who I think should win.

Courtney Love on stage

Courtney Love's Sound Engineer Didn't Get Paid So He Isolated Her Vocals and Guitar. Good God...

This is what happens when you don't pay your sound engineer... and when you sound like complete shit.  This is a video of Hole performing Celebrity Skin live at Don Hill's in NYC, September 11, 2010.  The sound engineer for the show that night (and other nights that week) allegedly didn't receive payment for their work at the venue, so one sound engineer decided to get revenge by isolating the singer/guitarist's vocals and guitar from the rest of the performance, resulting in nothing more than nails on a chalkboard.

8-bit harmonica

8-bit Harmonica - Blow into the cartridge for music

This harmonica not only has a Famicon cartridge case, it also produces 8-bit sound when you blow into the cartridge!  The 8-bit sound in this harmonica is achieved using a set of pipes that you blow into that are programmed to reproduce the chiptune sounds as heard in the original Super Mario Bros.  Multiple modes allow you to switch between playing music or the coin sound effect from the game.  Whether you're a video game fan or not, this is definitely a cool idea!
