Thursday MCA Edition: “Get It Together”

There are so many instrumental tracks from the Beastie Boys that we want to play this week in honor of MCA’s passing, but we grew up right when Ill Communication was hot, and every track just blew our minds.

Willis Earl Beal goes graphite stop-motion

Time and time again, we have been thinking about what a great era of music videos we are in.

First Friday: The Shins “Kissing The Lipless”

Even though the Shins have a new album set to be released in the next few months, we don’t think James Mercer can top the pop magic that was Chutes Too Narrow. “Kissing the Lipless” opened it up, and established Mercer has the penultimate indie-pop star of the moment that was 2003.
