Put Your $ On Me

Best New Music

Arcade Fire | "Put Your Money On Me" | Everything Now

We were born innocent, but it lies today
And baby you can give all the money away
But if there's a race, a race for your heart
It's over, before it starts
Singing put your money on me

If you think I'm losing, you must be crazy
All your money on me
I'm never gonna let you go, even when it's easy
Put your money on me

Best New Music | Current Mood 

Benjamin Booker | "Motivation" | Witness

It's the same problems that I had before
I know things have been hurried
Since I came through your door
It's the same questions that I had before
Can I just make it easy?
Can I run anymore?

Maybe all I need is a little motivation

Brew Detective: Revision IPA

Revision Brewing Co.
Remember Knee Deep Brewing, yea me too. Two of the brewers who helped carve out an exceptional IPA-centric lineup there, have since moved on. The new lab of lupulin is now located in Sparks, Nevada. Revision Brewing Company is crushing it, a revisionists history if you will? I'm excited to see their concoctions making it into my local watering-holes.

I recently enjoyed Revision India Pale Ale. It is undoubtably an American IPA. Most profound are the Simcoe Hops and it's amazing clarity, which does not sacrifice flavor one iota. The characteristics of this IPA are simultaneously upfront and subtle. Let's just say, things happen throughout the course of a pint. This delicious hop nectar is currently available on draft and will soon be hitting shelves—bottles and cans and just clap your hands. Drink responsibly. 6.5% | 50 IBU

Current Mood (or when dope was DOPE)

Like sixties funky worms with waves and perms

We be to rap what key be to lock

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Gil Scott-Heron

"The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" | 1970

...So far ahead of his time, pushing new mediums; where poetry, soul and jazz coalesced with purpose, which was confronting reality—hip hop would later carve from Scott-Heron's honesty. Just listen.

The Greatest

Cat Power | "The Greatest" | The Greatest

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars at night turned deep to dust
