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 Adz
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 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.
