SHAKE IT LIKE A DISNEY VILLIAN




(Les Savy Fav performing at the MoMA, you should have seen the security guards pouring sweat everytime he ran into the crowd)

Les Savy Fav performed at the MoMA last night. There was some weird art project where they took your cell phone when you entered, bagged it, and hung it on a wall with everyone else's phones. Not sure what the idea was behind it, aside from some speech about having a disease and being cured by giving up your cell phone. If that's considered a real problem by people, they need to live a little more. Anyway, LSF went balls-out as always with multiple costumes, cat burglars giving away stolen pieces of "Art", and running around in the audience. Nothing like a sweaty bearded man screaming/spitting in your face wearing a unitard to feel like you're in a house of High Art. Good times.

MP3:

So I know nothing about Micah P Hinson And The Opera Circut except that they are fom Texas, and I heard a song of theirs on the radio and really dug it. So I went to track down this song, and failed. However I did find two more tracks that I also enjoy, so now I am sharing them with you. They have a fairly different character between them, the first being a bit somber and finger-pickin' colored. The other swells and rolls with the music crashing and rising again, like the very sea that is being sung about.

• Micah P Hinson And The Opera Circut - Diggin A Grave

• Micah P Hinson And The Opera Circut - You're Only Lonely

A band's place in myspace.

  1. Micah P Hinson is incredible, saw him a month ago play an amazing 2 hour set in London. The best voice of a 24-year-old I could ever conceive. His previous album, 'Micah P Hinson and the Gospel of Progress,' is also fantastic.
