Landlocked Blues (Bright Eyes Cover) -- Robby and Celia
This is a collaborative cover of the Bright Eyes song “landlocked Blues” that i did longggg ago with my friend Celia via the magic of the internet. we have never met in person, but thought that this would be fun. she is by far more talented than I, you can see it in how my voice sounds like ass and hers is incredible. check her out at her youtube account: http://www.youtube.com/user/variousfruit
I played guitar and bells, she did the shaker and bass and everything else.

No. Oh my god. Are you fucking kidding me?
Holy fuck. Tyler vs T and S is a real thing?!!! HOLY FUCK. I HATE THIS GUY.
I didn’t know anything about this Tyler guy, so I found this article from the Guardian UK. After listening to his music, it seems pretty spot on to me.
Here’s few excerpts I really enjoyed:
…In recent interviews, Tyler has done in a particularly mealy-mouthed fashion. “I’m not homophobic,” he declared to NME last week. “I just think ‘faggot’ hits and hurts people.” It would appear that Tyler’s much-vaunted genius does not stretch to making a connection between these statements.
Tyler’s combination of dubious fantasies, anti-gay slurs and emo whining about his upbringing recalls Eminem which doesn’t leave much room for shock. In 2011, this feels impotent and tedious. Odd Future’s defenders in the media emphasise Tyler’s technical skills – and it’s true that his gift for assonance and internal rhymes is impressive. But his talent is only half the story: the shtick they use it for is played out. And it undermines the rest of his aesthetic: he demands our empathy at every turn for his own tough life, but is too limited an artist to show empathy for people who, with all due respect, suffer much more on a daily basis than growing up in a single-parent household. Tyler’s model of male anger ends up feeling a lot more like male privilege – and as conservative and regressive as that implies. As the critic Ann Powers noted recently, “Maybe OFWGKTA raps about rape because none has ever known a victimised woman, so it seems comic book to them.”
Plus One: (Produc)ing Good Music

I like anything about us that uses the word “perfectly”
…but really. thank you!
I have released my second full-length album today. It is entitled, “the cost of having a heart”. It is comprised of 15 songs that really helped me get through all the shit I’ve dealt with for the past 8 months. I really hope you enjoy it, and it is free to download here! Please, if you could, reblog this post so that I can try to get my music out to new people. I’m really trying to tour the US one day soon playing house shows, but in order to make that dream happen, I need your help!
Thanks for everything, loves.
check it out!
tomorrow is day of silence (so we’ll be shutting up for once) and then afterwards night of noise, which we’re playing at along with some other friends! click-through for more information
