On Wednesday, Glen Phillips (from Toad the Wet Sprocket) released a free download of a new song, “The Next Day.”  Go get it on his bandcamp site…

From the 12/13/11 show at Soho in Santa Barbara. Closest I will make it to a holiday song this year. More of an OWS support ditty with a seasonal reference in the chorus… Be happy, be well.

Also, rest in peace, Christopher Hitchens.  You were great.  God is Not Great.

My Brightest Diamond “High Low Middle” video (#OWS)

17th Nov 11 (Thu) Leave a comment

Perhaps the new music video for “High Low Middle” from My Brightest Diamond is an unofficial theme song for the Occupy Wall Street movement (albiet unintentional – as it was in the can long before #OWS)… directed by Murat Eyuboglu, filmed in Detroit and featuring dancers from RunJitRun and Jitting Jesus:

When you’re privileged you don’t even know you’re privileged
When you’re not, you know
When you’re happy you don’t even know you’re happy
When you’re not, you know
full lyrics (link)

Fellow Detroit musician Blue Stahli makes an appearance in the video.  If he or (*gasp*) labelmate Celldweller remixed some MBD tunes, that would be RAD as HELL!  Afternoon Update: Blue Stahli responded with a “Funny you should say that…twitter reply. Nice!

More MBD Stuff:

  • There’s a 9-10 minute session with Shara/MBD on NPR’s All Things Considered right HERE.
  • Check out my 11/5 review of the MBD show at Mississippi Studios in Portland Oregon right HERE.
  • I’d also highly recommend you pick up her latest album, All Things Will Unwind… it’s right HERE (and amazing).
