The story behind the music

This is how a band gets promoted and why much of the music industry might still stand in the future. Florence and the machine has been discussed earlier on MeFi but this story highlights how a fan with good contacts can make a difference. Now, with a Youtube channel, a shot at getting a Video Music Award and a way to present their music to the US audience, they may be poised for a new breakthrough.

MTV Video Awards nominees have been announced

MTV Video Awards nominees have been announced...and there's no "best alternative video" category anymore. What the hell! Granted, MTV has never been noted as a supporter of good music (remember 120 minutes? that got the boot a while ago), but seeing those early "alternative" bands rock out on screen was what initially got me into music as a kid - I cringe at the thought that there's a whole new batch of 11 year olds out there who see the guitar as nothing more than a prop in a choreography routine.

At least I can take solace in the fact that Weezer is finally touring the East Coast - all is not wrong with the world.
