As most of you know, Blur is reuniting and they dropped by Rough Trade Records yesterday in London to play two songs. The sound quality is pretty awful on the fan video, but you can clearly get a sense of the energy from the band and audience.

If you missed the band Woods at Brooklyn’s first Northside Festival this past weekend, you can check out their video here where guys play with food and instruments, semi-animated style.

Scotland’s Camera Obscura have a superb new release in My Maudlin Career. PopMatters’ Thomas Britt said, “The band’s finest work continues the pop rush we’ve come to expect from Camera Obscura but also develops the band’s sound and identity in significant ways.” The group stopped by Craig Ferguson’s show last night to play “French Navy”.

US Citizens Constitutional Rights continue to be trampled. Thanks, Obama (Not!)

I’ve a colleague who is getting married in Cairo. When she and her husband come to the States, their marriage will be recognized by the US federal government.


My right to marry my wife of 9 years is a Constitutional issue. It is not a state-by-state, individual-by-individual topic that anyone has a right to determine for people like me. This issue should never have been up for vote/open for public debate. It’s a disgrace that we’re still—STILL—discriminated against like this in this country.
