Lady Liberty

Happy 125th Birthday to the Statue of Liberty, you've come along way baby.

In honor of the Torch Bearer of the Atlantic, I thought it appropriate to post a fierce performance from the woman that nearly set the island on fire. Here's one of my favorite (and free-est) concerts I went to this summer; tUnE-yArDs, Live at Pier 54, rocking the river with her lazerfilled anthem, "My Country".

Beautiful Mystery

This is the most beautiful song I have heard in such a long time. It goes perfect with today's light Manhattan rain. Over the past year I've become more and more infatuated with the rich Psych history of Africa during the  70's. It must have been such a ridiculous blast to be at the clubs and shows at this time. The problem is most of the bands from that time only have one or two recordings that have survived long enough to let today's listener enjoy them. I have come into such a dilemma with The Elcados, I found only two songs and I've already worn them out and even deep searches come up empty. I guess this period is just filled with beautiful mysteries.
