Are Pop Lyrics Getting More Repetitive? | The Pudding
Pithier. They're getting pithier. This article, while awesome, seems to suffer from the common delusion that repetition in music is somehow undesirable. It's called 'melody' and it's kinda fundamental. Go count the number of times Beethoven said "da da da dum" and then get back to me about repetition in music.

JUGGALOS | Federal Bureau of Investigation [PDF]
53 tantalizing pages have been redacted from the FBI report on the Safe Streets/Gang Unit's investigation into Juggalos. Of the bits that aren't classified, there's this burn: "Insane Clown Posse can't get its music on the radio, but claim to have 1 million devoted fans".

Blondie & Philip Glass - 'Heart of Glass (Crabtree Remix)' | daftbeatles - mashups
Yes, it's the one featured on The Handmaid's Tale (s01e03). This is marvellous. Debbie Harry's vocals have never been so haunting, and the relentless textures of Glass' concerto layer against them sumptuously. Best served with a side of slomo splosions and shattering windowpanes, but then so many things are.

In League with Satay: the most metal menu ever | Louder
If you put a little pastry mohawk on the crust, you can call it a 'Kornish pasty' and circumvent regional protection legislation. Follow it up with Buns 'n' Roses. Bullets for my clementine, sautéed in Led Zeppelinseed oil, and limp bizkits.

Why Beethoven rules supreme over Mozart | Torygraph
"Beethoven is simply on a different plane, when it comes to grandeur and the sublime." And "[c]ompared to Mozart and Haydn, his music is quite simply noisier"---I have been saying this for years. You can go on as much as you like about diminished fifths, but ultimately it is just that simple. Beethoven rocks your socks right off.

5th Anniversary Videos | Frisky and Mannish
The Kickstarter worked, so now these videos are available to the world. Even if you've not spent real money on every single Frisky & Mannish live performance available, like what I have, these hi-def recordings are now available for you to enjoy IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME (although, for various reasons Festival-related and not, I still highly recommend getting drunk either first or during). F&M aren't doing any shows for the next while, so this is all you get. Enjoy.

Lady Gaga: ARTPOP review | viagroar
I do think that Gaga has become more pretentious and less listenable as time goes on, which is a shame. Nonetheless I'd still be getting this if it weren't for the contribution from R Kelly---who on earth think's he's still relevant any more?

Is Dubstep Avant Garde Musical Genius? | Youtube
Referencing Ballet Mechanique and Musique Concrete, of which I've never really been a big fan, with one notable exception (Delia Derbyshire rocks your socks right off). Answer: probably. This investigation into the Dubsteps raises some damn good points, despite a slight overdependence on Skrillex as the ur-example. This I shall permit. They're Americans after all.
