NEW LCD STREAM

Fucking awesome: new LCD Soundsystem !!!
He’s streaming the ENTIRE album on his site: http://www.lcdsoundsystem.com/thisishappening/
After listening to it on repeat all day, it’s pretty easy to say “Dance Yrself Clean” is one of his best tracks ever and this might be his most solid album yet.
This album kills. Can’t wait to freak out to him live at Sasquatch!!!

NEW FRONT

If I haven’t already mentioned the newly redesigned Front mag, I should.
Front has been redesigned, and it’s doing so to get away from typical art criticism, which I am all for.
Very exciting. Makes me want to get involved.

HER ART IS HER LIFE

Quite a thoughtful review of Erykah Badu’s new album on Pitchfork
with a great couple of lines near the end:

Her art is her life, and her life– like anyone’s– is too messy and varied to contain. Whether or not it’s her responsibility to distill and make sense of it all is beside the point.

HOW DO YOU SURVIVE?

I like the title of this series: Quit Your Day Job.
Yes, I AM interested in finding out how my favourite artists make ends meet. Fill me in!

INCONSISTENT VISION

Royal Ontario Museum: how can it have the coolest building in Canada
AND the worst site in the world???????
This site looks like a wall of spam. I don’t want to look at a wall of ads, thank you.

KIDS ARE DARK LITTLE CREATURES

Crow Toes Quarterly (http://crowtoesquarterly.com/)
This children’s lit site is not what you’d think.
Where you might think you’d find cute characters and harmless stories with stock morality tacked on the end, you will instead find dark, playful, funny and frightening stories accompanied by mesmerizing art.
Check it out! You won’t be disappointed.
