Listening Pitstop

I was super lucky to have been able to catch Chvrches ‘live’ last week and part of the reason why is Riot !n Magenta. This local band opened for Chvrches and they are good. (Not being biased here.)

They are really really good. I found them on Soundcloud and the tracks are excellent, but the studio versions just can’t convey the energy that this band has ‘live’. In any case, here’re two of the tracks I have on repeat. Enjoy!

1988 // Youandewan

Your Fine Petting Duck // Devendra Banhart

Good Intent // Kimbra

Podcast

Dr Gilmer and Mr Hyde // This American Life // This episode was about a mysterious patricide committed by a seemingly nice doctor. How could someone commit an act so inconsistent with his personality? Or could we be misled about the people we know? I also recommend reading this Facebook clarification after you’re done with the podcast.
