Yesterday, I took a lunch break like any other, choosing to spend my 30 minutes perusing the local vinyl selection. As I entered the shop, I noticed a shaggy man, whose penchant for finding the good stuff before I did suggested he was someone I should know. We shopped in silence next to each other for what seemed like hours, as I waited anxiously for him to put down an album I particularly wanted, until he finally spoke. His accent was the clincher—This was Dan Whitford, frontman of the acclaimed Australian rock-electronic outfit Cut Copy. And he was in town to play the Jefferson Theater.
Cat videos…. Just kidding. I can’t stand cats.
I personally use youtube for music videos. There isn’t anyone in particular that I pay attention to but my younger sister is currently obsessed with a few people so I’ve watched some of their stuff by default lately. I have asked her to make a list of them, just for you! The youtubers my sister is currently obsessing over are:
JacksGap, danisnotonfire, amazingphil, KickThePj, nerimon.
Those nights when you can’t sleep because your mind is at an intense level of creativity, your heart is beating with an extra amount of compassion, and your soul is aching with a supply of open consciousness.
Extensive awakeness in expansive insomnia.
