What did you buy or listen to this week?
What are your thoughts on the record?
I wanted to share the Moog from the Google Doodle with you yesterday. I caught it early on in the morning and thought “wow I will be one of the first to share this!” Then I started playing it. Big mistake. Needless to say between that and booking a festival and launching a business network, I suddenly found the day gone and so many Google Moog articles up that it really seemed pointless.
Much of the same feeling may be found today when going to google.com. After all, we have omnibars to do our “googling” these days. Why couldn’t Google keep it’s ode to the great-beyond-measure Robert Moog? Surely we need a digital synthesizer in our lives each day.
I am mostly joking. Really how much work got done in tech offices around the world yesterday while workers were playing “Cars” and Daft Punk on the Google Moog? Google’s home page being that addicting everyday may be the fall of our economy + civilization all together. They were looking out for us! (99% joking)
I still found myself abnormally upset that the “Moogle” had transformed back into a “Google” even before midnight PST. That is, until I remembered something from the years of browsing the internet’s most productive tools.
Google has a ton of hidden gems, one of them being the Google Doodle archives, where luckily the Robert Moog Google Doodle Memorial will stand proud + function for as long as the internet exists.
Plus, for those less “Funk”-y days, there is a Les Paul tribute of the Doodle that is amazing as well and also was/is able to record and send.
Moog, Les Paul, Google… you complete us (but really, thanks for the genius, the innovation, and the endless inspiration).
Here is where you may find the Doodles (hopefully after business/school hours):
And if you find yourself needing an educational break, we highly recommend reading Robert Moog’s short auto-bio he wrote at only 17!
Enjoy + Make Music!
Oh and send it to us!
I am always excited when I hear about any new super-group, but the news that Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks) formed together to create Divine Fits exceeded my happiness.

LP Shares Sessions from EastWest Studios with fans for free via this wonderful download box below.
Don’t let the “Live” throw you off here, in fact if anything the sound + style only accentuate the booming vocals of the Florence-meets-Joplin-esque singer.
Then again, it’s crushingly obvious that those vocals would sound just as strong and beautiful if she had been in an open field with no supporting talent- and we’d be just as excited about hearing it!
LP is currently in the studio recording with multiple producers such as Isa Summers (who worked with Florence and the Machine) and PJ Bianco. No word yet as to when the record will be released.
Swedish folk artist Kristian Matsson, otherwise known as The Tallest Man on Earth, will release his third album There’s No Leaving Now on June 12th in the U.S.- one day after the album’s UK release.
