‘Crystalised’ by The xx is effing brilliant.

Whether it’s the original, the Rory Phillips remix or it’s getting mashed up with Adele.  Brilliant.

So howabout when you get Warpaint to redo the instrumentation and Martina Topley-Bird and Mark Lanegan put their vocals over it?  Brilliant.  Obviously.


Record Store Day

Today was Record Store Day.

RSD was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.

Hope you had a great one!
