Website for Class

So for one of my classes I have to make a website about anything I want, basically. I think what I'm going to do is showcase new music that is coming out and for every page, have a different genre. Here are two I'm thinking of (and will post the other two when I think of them):

Sufjan Stevens - The Age of AdzImage and video hosting by TinyPic
Even though I'm not too much of a fan, (go back to the 50 states project, Sufjan! Just sayin!) it is Sufjan and I still think he's great. His vision for this album is interesting, which according to Asthmatic Kitty's website, was "heavy use of electronics augmented by heavy orchestration, and inspiration from the apocalyptic artwork of schizophrenic artist Royal Robertson" but it's just not what Sufjan does best.

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Image and video hosting by TinyPic Yes, I know that there's another album cover Kanye West released a couple weeks ago for this album. No, I don't want to display it on my website; it creeps me out for some reason. I think it's the teeth on the woman. Anyway, Kanye's "good Friday" marketing tool has been getting a lot of hype for the album. Releasing a new track every Friday on his website has given momentum to the project after his break (or his definition of a break,) from music and after the Taylor Swift VMA debacle. Although, it seems that this T-Swift thing will be following him around for a while.

Would it Kill You? Streaming on HelloGoodbye's website

Listen to "Find Something to Do"!

Right now I'm not sure if it's the entire album or just the first track. So far I can only listen to "Find Something to Do" so I don't know.

This is probably going to leak in a day or two unfortunately. When will bands learn that streaming the album on their website equals a leak before the release date!?

Guilty Pleasure Alert!

My apologies for not being present. Kind of going through a hectic time not only in school but just in general. Also new music has been a little uninspiring lately. However, I have found a new love for Ratatat and will share more about that later.

Weezer getting Bribes to Break Up!

Some guy named James Burns in Seattle was willing to give Weezer 10 million dollars, Pitchfork and NY Times reports, if they would break up! Until he received death threats! Weezer fans are serious business! Pitchfork/NY Times report:
Burns is feeling the wrath of
Weezer die hards. "I've actually received death threats over this,
believe it or not," he told the Times. "Some people have told me
they wish I would get AIDS. This whole campaign, I fully admit
that it's silly.
