Watch out the world’s behind you 
There’s always someone around you
Who will call
It’s nothing at all

Justin Young: ‘Rihanna is as important as Radiohead’

His comments came after he was asked why he felt the need to define The Vaccines as a rock band and dress in denim when they released second album ‘Come Of Age’ earlier this year.

Speaking to NME, he said: “I just feel bands can be misunderstood, and I think people can over-intellectualise music.

I think an artist like Rihanna is as important as a band like Radiohead. They serve different purposes, neither is more important. As for us, people might think of us an indie band that got big, but I think of us as a small pop band.

Young adds: “I think there is a crucial difference in that we make records for ourselves, but we don’t make decisions based on that. We’re not scared of selling records and like the idea of it. The idea of getting bigger is desirable as long as you’re getting better. I wouldn’t want to be big and bad, or water anything down.”

The statement contradicts the band’s guitarist Freddie Cowan who earlier this year criticised Rihanna for not being a ‘real’ musician. 

Cowan said back in August: “Rihanna isn’t an artist – she has 15 writers, 15 songwriters and 15 producers all fighting for space on her albums and she’s the face of it. I have nothing against it, but I don’t want to be associated with it.”

Meanwhile, Young went on to say he was happy with the way the band avoided the trap of merely adding string sections to their second album to make it sound bigger. 

“We could’ve done that, but I actually think we made a more exciting sounding record. We could’ve moved toward the middle lane, but I think we actually moved further away from it.”

Jeff Buckley is one of the only people I can listen to and start crying. Not over the music, but over the fact that he died so young. 

Over the music, and over the fact that he died so young. Both.

“Phantom”
—Cil & Avi

So it ends
Couldn’t get to where you were
Your trace lingers
It lingers

Day by day
Rushing in to fill your void
I continue
I continue where you end

Day by day
They still whisper out your name
Wishing you were here
They wish you were here

Time will take
Everything that’s given anyway
So I let go
Yeah I let go of those fears

But I miss you
I miss you
Yeah I miss you now
It just never seems that way

And I watch you
I watch you
Yeah I watch you now
Far beneath the ground

Lisa Lobsinger of Broken Social Scene lends the vocals for this group. This track features a subdued jazziness that is soft and gentle…easy on the ears…without being boring. The strength of the drums and guitar balance nicely with Lobsinger’s soft vocals.

Main di acara Apres!, Musik Petang Universitas, hari Jumat lalu bareng Androgeniuses di Sunken Court ITB. Ini salah satu lagunya yang judulnya Academically Speaking. Jarang-jarang beres manggung rasanya lega banget, walau mainnya belom terlalu rapih.

Perlahan sangat pelan hingga terang kan menjelang
Cahaya kota kelam mesra menyambut sang petang
Di sini ku berdiskusi dengan alam yg lirih
Kenapa matahari terbit menghangatkan bumi

Aku orang malam yg membicarakan terang
Aku orang tenang yg menentang kemenangan oleh pedang

Perlahan sangat pelan hingga terang kan menjelang
Cahaya nyali besar mencuat runtuhkan bahaya
Di sini ku berdiskusi dengan alam yg lirih
Kenapa indah pelangi tak berujung sampai di bumi

Aku orang malam yg membicarakan terang
Aku orang tenang yg menentang kemenangan oleh pedang

Cahaya bulan menusukku dengan ribuan pertanyaan
Yg takkan pernah ku tau dimana jawaban itu
Bagai letusan berapi bangunkan ku dari mimpi
Sudah waktunya berdiri mencari jawaban kegelisahan hati

Terangi dengan cinta di gelapku
Ketakutan melumpukanku
Terangi dengan cinta di sesatku
Dimana jawaban itu

Cahaya bulan menusukku dengan ribuan pertanyaan
Yg takkan pernah ku tau dimana jawaban itu
Bagai letusan berapi bangunkan ku dari mimpi
Sudah waktunya berdiri mencari jawaban kegelisahan hati

Pavement - Gold Soundz

"It’s no surprise that the 1994 "Gold Soundz" would be included on the recent Best of Pavement album, Quarantine the Past. The stream-of-consciousness lyrics, broken only to alert the band of the coming chorus, are a big part of what makes the band’s entire catalog so compelling—but it’s the surprisingly understated instrumental section that always does me in. A smattering of guitars rise and fall with graceful ambiguity, blooming in the middle in a fit of unexpected ecstasy only to collapse drunk on the floor. Beautiful.”
