once saw vampy weeks play from about ten thousand miles away in a field at a music festival. probably it’s better at a real venue though.

I’m seeing them at the New Orleans Jazz Fest…it’s a pretty small festival, though. Like, 1/12 the size of others.

It’s kind of funny the first concert I’m going to alone is Vampire Weekend.

Are they EVEN good LIVE?

Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit

75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South. 

Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.

no-trivia:

I reviewed this for the Baltimore City Paper, but I’m so obsessed with this album and its concept that I sat down with Cex last week and wanted to get more info on it’s creation and conceptualization. ANIMAL was kind enough to let me do that. If you don’t know: Shamaneater is the soundtrack for a fictional Playstation 2 game (about video game addiction) and it comes with a fake GameFAQ for the fake game, so there’s some meta on top of meta type thing going on here. But it also isn’t some nostalgic video game bullshit, you know? Check it out. Also, I just realized the cover is kind of a clever riff on DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing. So many levels to this shit.
