Bad Veins – Go Home

I’m having trouble trying to get my mind to bend around you. But I don’t feel that I have a lot of time to spend searching for clues. Just tell me all your secrets or go home…”

The strangest thing has been happening to me as of late… You know how when you hear a song you usually identify with the victim or can relate to the singers struggle somehow? Well, these days I’m finding myself on the other end of the song. I relate more to the so-called wrong doer then the victim, I say so-called because so much of love and relationships is selfish in nature that right and wrong can many times be completely relative.

So what’s that make you, good?! You not good, you just know how to hide, and lie.
Me I don’t have that problem… Me?! I always tell the truth, even when I lie…” – Tony Montana (Scarface)

I like this song because it touches on an ideal I die for when it comes to relationships, not wasting anyones time. Right now, I can’t open up to a girl with all my secrets so I make that clear because if that’s what she wants then she should be with someone that will. I personally have so much I’m going to accomplish that it makes me take the concept of time very serious and I feel like if someone led me on they would be stealing the most precious thing I have so I don’t steal and…

That’s why I, I never been robbed in my life.” – Jay-Z (1-900-Hustler, 2000)

Anyways, Bad Veins are on tour now with We Were Promised Jetpacks, here’s some official info…

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: The Lost Tape

With high expectations, rebel citizens of the millennial generation leave the tired and corporate ruled world of radio to begin a new life in music blogs…

Raid the radio!
Cause we’re tired of hearing the same old song.
We’re gonna change the dial to something new.
Bring some truth to this town.” – General Electriks

However, the Recording Industry of America gains great military powers and soon ceases control of one music blog after another, in the name of justice and peace.

The year is 2009, the space age. In a move to counter The Industries tyranny, rebel citizens of the Et Musique Pour Tous faction scheme to bring new arsenals to the earth disguising them as mixtapes. Made to introduce innovative and traditionally oppressed styles of art and music to the world, these tapes created a problem for The Industry taking away radio spins from the likes of elemental pawns Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. However, leaders of the powerful and corrupt hosting giant Gisol Incorporated catch on to this operation and in a merciless act to maintain power destroy EMPT and any traces of these mixtapes. Once again forced into the underground, EMPT forges an alliance with a small but powerful hosting company to rebuild and continue distribution of the mixtapes. As the revolution continues the tapes have gained great popularity around the world with more and more oppressed citizens finding new ways of expression and artistic appreciation. On 1.18.2010, EMPT released The Lost Tape, the first of the series destroyed by The Industry. The release is meant to symbolize the struggle and success of the continuing revolution. The second act has just begun, we’ll be busy…

Let’s see which course the future will take. It’s up to the people whether our plans to reform will succeed, that’ll decide the future…”

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Septembre

It’s the first of the month, so cash your checks and get up.” – Bone Thugs

Aside from the usual check cashing  and up getting, the first of the month is always exciting for us because it means a new version of Steph Lund’s Le Miel du Mois premiere’s on E.M.P.T. Since it’s inception back in May Le Miel du Mois has been downloaded over 800 times, and that’s not counting the nearly month long shut down we had to overcome. This popular mixtape displays a broad yet refined taste in countless genres, styles and feelings – quite fresh. This is one that needs to be listen to the whole way though as all the songs come together to paint a coherent experience. So without further ado, here are some words from the mastermind herself, enjoy.

Septembre. septembre. les feuilles. le vent. The beautiful feeling of fall across your neck, buzzing through your hair, down to your legs making you run faster and faster until you fall oh into fall into fall into fall. This mix is a little bit softer than the summer mixes. The second to last track is Fever Ray. I was first introduced to Fever Ray a few months ago, when I received it in the mail from The Album Club. If you haven’t heard about the UK’s TAC yet, I suggest you check it out here: http://www.thealbumclub.com/concept.php. Fever Ray is the debut solo album from The Knife’s frontwoman, Karin Dreijer Andersson. I love Karin’s voice, ever since I fell in love with Röyksopp’s “What Else Is There” released in ’05. She is eccentric and eclectic and sometimes her vocals and lyrics scare me, but nevertheless keep me wanting more:

Fever Ray’s If I Had A Heart lyrics:

This will never end
cause i want more
more, give me more, give me more”
