Music-Related Things I’ve Starred in Google Reader

Google Reader is like my homegirl. We share the same interests (I taught her well). She’s always recommending new things for me, not forcing things on me. If I decide I don’t want to hear about something anymore, she’ll stop bringing it up. And sometimes, I share what she shares, hence this article.

I’ll keep this short and on topic by sharing some music-related content that I recently “starred” in my reader. I encourage you to explore the articles and the websites that they are featured on…

 

Recognizing Real” via The Donut Project¬†

I loved this piece on the late American blues singer, harmonicist and comedian Arthur Jackson, better known as Peg Leg Sam. If you like Peg Leg Sam, blues, music, or need inspiration, this is a must read that includes a clip from the 1970’s documentary on Jackson titled “Born for Hard Luck.”

 

The phenomenon develops calmly, but it is invisible, unstoppable” via But Does it Float

Have you ever had the urge to take a photograph of your record player while an album is spinning? Well, something compelled Paul Octavious to do so and the results are stunning. 

 

Poster Pick: Diana Sudyka” via Grain Edit

Clearly I love to see artists inspired by music and musicians. Diana Sudyka is an illustrator and printmaker based out of Chicago. She is known for her beautiful gig and silkscreen posters for bands including the Decemberists, Pearl Jam, Andrew Bird, Feist, Modest Mouse.

 

These ivory keys are what propel me” via Voodoo Village

I don’t know if you have 39 minutes to spare, but if you do, consider spending it watching a guy named Sam Abbott perform a cover of Mastodon‘s Leviathan…in one sitting…on the piano. I know what you’re thinking, and I completely agree.
