KILLER COVER: TORI AMOS COVERING THE CURE
Tori Amos covering “Picture of You”. I would totally buy a cover album by Tori Amos. I want a studio recording of this song. So bad. Spine tingles.
FAVORITE INSTAGRAM POST OF THE WEEK
From fellow concert photograph @GetTiny‘s Instagram feed, a #TBT to when Action Bronson at a chicken wing during a performance in Brooklyn. So awesome. HAHAHA.
THE BEST ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE VIDEO
It seems that whatever the Foo Fighters do, they do it really well. Even ALS ice bucket challenge videos. This was seriously awesome. Funny for a good cause. Can’t wait for their new album to come out this year.
OKAY, OKAY, OLKAY … THIS MADE ME “HAPPY”
I was over Pharrell’s “Happy” the 239,478 time I heard in on the radio … but this video made me smile.
SONG OF THE WEEK
With the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, Lauryn Hill posted a demo track she recorded about a year ago. This is music that makes a difference. The fact that she uses the melody of the Sound Of Music’s “My Favorite Things”. This track is genius. You should take a listen. Major props to Lauryn Hill.

Pitchfork magazine published a list of “The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far”. It’s not a bad list. Of the 100, I have 24 of the album. The one’s that I was really happy to see on their list were Killer Mike “R.A.P. Music”, Majical Clouz “Impersonator”, Japandroids “Celebration Rock”, The War On Drugs’ “Lost In The Dream”. These albums are so good, I got them all on vinyl.
