WEAR A MASK OR GO TO JAIL
In an effort to curb the spread of Spanish Flu in 1918, some states in the US quarantined citizens; others made the wearing of face masks mandatory, at the same time as shutting down “all places of amusement”. According to a law passed in San Francisco in October of that year, on the day that state-wide infections passed 50,000, anyone seen not wearing a gauze face covering was subject to fines that ranged from $5 to $100 and the possibility of 10 days’ imprisonment.

Her accolades include three Mercury prize nominations, one Brit Award nomination, and a European Border Breakers Award.

MODJORIDO: REVOLT IN PARADISE

Grup cadas MODJORIDO baru saja merilis single perdana di bawah Pohon Tua Creatorium bertajuk “Revolt”. Single ini, menurut sang biduan Rico Mahesi, bisa dimaknai sebagai evolusi, pertanda kebangkitan, kembali menggairahkan musik rock, juga, selayaknya spirit musik rock yang dekat dengan pemberontakan.

MANJA: GAMES WE PLAY

Seolah ogah kehilangan momentum, Manja kembali menyentak lewat komposisi “Games We Play” Setelah sebelumnya meluncurkan single pertama “Rise” belum lama ini dan disambut amat baik oleh publik.

BANANACH: VIRGIN FUCKBOI

Not exactly sexy, it’s not funny and they’re not going to be rolling around in mud like the Slits; but it’s the closest thing to art that “post-punk”… has offered in a while.

RILO KILEY – I REMEMBER YOU

A beautiful, melancholy Fleetwood Mac-esque indie rock. One of my most favourites of Rilo Kiley’s composition.

THE WONDERFUL MS MERCHANT

One of my biggest 90s crushes turned 57 today. Happy birthday and stay wonderful, Natalie Merchant!

HOME

“I’m going home,” she said.
“Where’s home to you?” he asked.
“My house?” she said, confused, and laughed a little.
“Home isn’t a place,” he paused, “it’s a colour, a song, a scent, a feeling, a person, that first sip of good whisky, but it’s not a place.”

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE

I have a forever soft spot for this song. I immediately get little tears in my eyes, get goosebumps each and every time.

PTC PARTICIPLES CIRCUIT: THE SCENE THAT CELEBRATES ITSELF

Fenomena yang sedang menggejala pada label rekaman Pohon Tua Creatorium (PTC) belakangan ini relatif mirip dengan kejadian pada awal 90an di wilayah Thames Valley, London. Para musisi skena indie—didominasi pegiat shoegaze—kerap kongkow-kongkow di area tersebut, saling mendatangi konser satu sama lain, meminjam personel, tukar menukar anggota, mengisi posisi lowong antar band: The Scene That Celebrates Itself.

CHIEF JOSEPH SURRENDERS

Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce peoples surrenders to U.S. General Nelson A. Miles in the Bear Paw mountains of Montana, declaring “Hear me, my chiefs: My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, THE CATCHIEST SONG OF ALL TIME

“We Are the Champions” is the catchiest song of all time, according to science. “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People, Europe’s “The Final Countdown”, and “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi were also in the list.
