“I want to love unconditionally now.” Read on as Steve Lacy opens up about how he made his sophomore album in this exclusive artist statement. “Someone asked me if I felt pressure to make something that people might like. I felt a disconnect, my eyes squinted as I looked up. As I thought about the question, I realized that we always force a separation between the artist (me) and audience (people). But I am not separate. I am people, I just happen to be an artist. Once I understood this, the album felt very easy and fun to make. Gemini Rights is me getting closer to what makes me a part of all things, and that is: feelings. Feelings seem like the only real things sometimes. “I write about my anger, sadness, longing, confusion, happiness, horniness, anger, happiness, confusion, fear, etc., all out of love and all laughable, too. The biggest lesson I learned at the end of this album process was how small we make love. I want to love unconditionally now. I will make love bigger, not smaller. To me, Gemini Rights is a step in the right direction. I’m excited for you to have this album as your own as it is no longer mine. Peace.” —Steve Lacy

Your Hand In Mine
by Explosions in the Sky
(98 plays) | (0 fans)

By request! The group noted in Bandcamp about recording 'The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place': "One night we decided to take a break and we drove out to the Monahans Sand Dunes, a few miles outside of Midland. This place is hard to describe. You're just surrounded by weird, untouched desert. And you can see all the stars in the sky... We brought a boom box with us and we laid down on the sand and listened to music. For some reason this made us feel better about things. The next night we were back in the basement practice space working on new songs. We can't remember if it got any easier or any less frustrating but somehow everything started to fall into place."

Title And Registration
by Death Cab for Cutie
(87 plays) | (0 fans)

The video, directed by Patrick Daughters, consists of frontman Ben Gibbard lying on an operating table while undergoing a "surgery" (as done by the other band members) to receive a new heart. Although Ben seems to act calm and has the ability to sing throughout the procedure, he was not given anesthetics nor was he on any form of life support. During the surgery, it is revealed that Gibbard's chest is simply paper, model organs, and a model rib cage. https://youtu.be/1XmbvfxMiUE Due to the song's layered instrumentation, "Title and Registration" has been difficult to play during live performances in the past, and thus has been performed a variety of ways. All of these involved guitarist Chris Walla switching halfway through the song from lead guitar to keyboards, whilst singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard took over the guitar part. https://bit.ly/3oGZbx1 Watch them play this one live in Sydney, Australia: https://youtu.be/z9kwc_eBQ1Y

Just feels right, ya know? It was released on 17 January 2003 by Rabid Records then later by Mute in 2006. #95 in KEXP listeners' favorite songs of all time! https://www.kexp.org/countdowns/kexp-listeners-favorite-songs-of-all-time/ -- The mysterious Swedish electronic music sibling duo the Knife released this from their second studio album - 2003's ‘Deep Cuts,’ but still kept a low profile, performing in masks and in darkness. Bandcamp wrote that, “even after their 2002 single “Heartbeats” and 2006 album Silent Shout earned them widespread acclaim, they gave few interviews and played very few concerts.

Black Cherry was the second studio album by English electronic duo, Goldfrapp. The album cover features of photographs taken by Polly Borland featuring Alison Goldfrapp with two wolves. Goldfrapp explained in a statement that the wolves are a representation of might and mysticism and that she was "interested in the idea of metamorphosis and humans wanting to be like animals and animals wanting to be like humans." https://bit.ly/37LNIZ1 http://www.goldfrapp.com/
