The recent passing of Cy Twombly has prompted me to write this. While we focus on music and mostly the music we create, I'd like to take a moment and bring to light some of the brilliance of Cy. His work fullfilled art world empties. It was a gathering of ideas, a laugh, a cry, and a poke. It was brilliant, crass, delightful, and proposterous. The work of Cy Twombly has not only inspired me in my own life as an artist, but my life as a musician. I will continue to find joy in his work, especially the most simplistic pieces, which is where I felt he excelled.
I remember my first visit to the MoMA (I saw two of the pieces featured below). Cy had two large rooms to himself. In one room were the giant chalkboard-like paintings...obvious and powerful upon first glance. Then after a while they become more constrictive, leaving the viewer gazing back upon their memories...of childhood, or more recent experiences, clashes with culture, understanding, or ambivalence. Each piece somewhat improvisational, like free jazz on a canvas. I was enthralled and beyond inspired. I will forever be. Thanks Cy!

To some of those miscellaneous do-gooders
Last week I visited a far off land called Tulsa, OK. The sounds and visions enjoyed by my ears there are rarely perculiar, but this time I was more attentive. I took myself out for the evening along with some family and new friends. We played cop watching games, marco pollo, and spotted hundreds of sex hungry brain clouds out on the town. Then we ventured into the Sound Pony. A slightly pretentious, well-intentioned establishment with live music nearly every night of the week. My ears perked as sounds surrounded them briefly by a group that goes by Slothpop. Not the best name, but certainly memorable as was their performance.
Beats dripped down from the ceiling creating melted cages around each listener. The voices popped bubbles growing off mossy guitar synth rock. Simplistic song structure taking unexpected turns. Slothpop is female lead vocals driving a talented group of musicians. Many in the crowd took pause to hear them out when nothing else in their evening struck their fragile minds. My pleasantries divided upon the night and I was forced to flee, but in the moments I saw them, I was overjoyed to witness this in my homeland, where my family live, where the buffalo roam, and where the sloths pop.
Slothpop is performing at Moe's BBQ in Denver on July 7 & The Laughing Goat in Boulder on July 8.

Naked Ape shows us we no longer have to fear zombies, in fact, we may have a new workforce on our hands. Think of how much money America could save by paying them in brains. Forget paying Jessica Simpson millions of dollars to wash a car with a burger, we could get the sexy zombie chicks to do it for flesh burgers. On the downside, the car may have to be rewashed after they are done with it, they cannot be held responsible for the chunks of flesh left behind.
The beat alone in “Fashion Freak” will sink it's decaying teeth into you, rip off your flesh and infect you. The lyrics, like slippery sausages, roll around escaping snarling dogs mouths, the more they are encountered, the more drooly and slippery they get. This video will make you want to hide under your covers for a week, or oddly arouse and shame you. Watch out here they come, make them happen.
