“This Too Shall Pass”
Above is the official video for “This Too Shall Pass,” a track off The Foxymorons’ new album, Bible Stories. Below is a link to The Foxymorons’ website. In the middle is this very paragraph that you’re reading, in which I explain how, because physical contact is so 1990s, the band members filmed the video separately using their iPhones and later edited it using iChat’s screen-share program through an old version of iMovie. SHHH… Listen hard enough and you might hear Steve Jobs stroking his iDick.

Back To The Future The Ride
Do you remember Lea Thompson’s cleavage in Back To The Future? Of course you do, PERVERT. In related news, Back To The Future The Ride (the band) has released a new video for a track called “Zero Ghost” off the Pronoia Sunsets cassette on Accidie Records, but why, dear reader, can I not stop thinking about Lea’s cleavage?
Antony and the Johnsons
“Flétta” [feat. Björk]
Early this morning, Antony posted a link to Tumblr on his Twitter, directing us to new song “Flétta,” his incredible duet with Björk Guðmundsdóttir. Give a listen, buy the new album Swanlights on October 12 (via Secretly Canadian), and weep like you’ve never weeped before.
“The Felt Sense”
Tu Fawning, featuring Portland’s Corrina Repp and Joe Haege, are releasing their debut full-length, Hearts On Hold, on October 5 through their own Provenance Records. Why their own record label? According to the band:
We have all seen enough to know that many artists sacrifice creative control, even in small ways, upon deciding to work with a 3rd party. Hell, they (record labels) used to decide what song you’d play, who’d you play with and when you’d release it…and then they might not pay you! While it may not be that bad anymore, at least on the independent label level, you are still a commodity. Art will always take a backseat to the notion of moving units. But what happens when you are driving the car and you invite art to the front seat?
Buckle up, readers.
