Listen/download: Höyük by The Rotten Burrows

in case you guys missed it, my friend riley and his band the rotten burrows made this incredible album and i’m listening to it now and it warms my heart and makes me feel new england feels.

while my favorite track is hsh, there’s a song called deweyhaus which is about the house we live in together and that is a beautiful thing.

Musical training doesn’t just improve your ear for music, it also helps your ear for speech. That’s the takeaway from an unusual new study published in The Journal of Neuroscience. Researchers found that kids who took music lessons for two years didn’t just get better at playing the trombone or violin. They found that playing music also helped kids’ brains process language.

i may not be a music student but i’ve been working on repairing my love for music for about two years now, after my hands stopped working and i couldn’t be the musician i wanted to be anymore. a little inspiration from composers i’ve met and made music with is a welcome reminder.
thank you for the advice, mr. whitacre.

Soprillo saxophone.

I’ve seen this on my dash a few times, and each time i’ve thought “why the fuck would someone want to eat a saxophone?” I’m just now realizing that the utensils are for a size comparison…
