“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    wow, there was this song that i heard on an indie movie trailor called “the faithful” and fell in love with the song. There was no way of finding out what song it was as the instrumental part was being played. Well, it turns out it is this song from SIA. I cant believe I stumbled upon it a year later. And i saw the Six Feet Under finale, I wouldnt have picked a different song.

    You’re forgetting one of the best ones of all. It was when Nate and Claire went to Seattle. They were coming up to Lisa’s house and Our Way to Fall, by Yo La Tengo came on. I almost jumped out of my seat when I heard it. That song means a lot to me.

    Thanks for the repost
