Beach House, Rothko

From Pitchfork:

The first 34 seconds of "Lazuli", off of the upcoming Bloom, retell Beach House's story as a band in miniature. The song begins with a muzzy, coughing-ant drum-machine puff and a tiny music-box synth tone-- the same musty, dimly lit, cramped musical space their first two albums fit into, a place lit by candles but untouched by fresh air. Then, after a slow cymbal wash, the colors come flooding in, a sunburst that overwhelms every inch of space, like kicking your way out of a stuffy closet into a cool stone cathedral. "Lazuli" is a forceful, overwhelming reminder of the world Beach House discovered on 2010's Teen Dream, one that hovers in the air, glowing and benevolent, like a giant Rothko painting. It's gratifying just to be near it.

$.005 to move forward

I hope you didn't forget to give your 0.5% to NASA and your 28% to the military yesterday.

In defense of boredom

Good article by Dave Bry for The Awl on how a lot of today's best art is "boring".

Paul Harding's Tinkers, Jasper Johns' paintings, Low's music, baseball, and slowing down to explore the space between stuff.

Trayvon

I hope the momentum keeps up.  Grantland's latest, NYT's, Good Magazine's, Congressman Bobby Rush, Bryn's unintended tribute, even a letter from Sinead O'Connor.



UPDATE:  YES!!!
