The title track to Oscar Scheller’s debut Beautiful Words EP is an oddly hopeful thing. Despite the levity of the chorus, it still feels like its dragging around the weight of the world. The video for the song doesn’t have the same kind of narrative drive attached to it as his affecting “Daffodil Days” video,… More »

Bully – “Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying” (Belle & Sebastian Cover)

Kendrick Lamar opened Sunday night’s BET Awards with an explosive, politically charged, and all-around awesome performance of “Alright,” rapping “We hate po-po/ Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho” from atop a vandalized police car while a giant American flag waved in the background.
