i know it enough to believe it…

at the age of 11 years old, going to a private catholic school and being shelter-shocked to any sort of reality, listening to music was my breakthrough to the other side. hole‘s album live through this was a favorite album to listen to during those early nineties. it was courtney love in her finest glory screaming victimization and wanting acclimation, dressed in ripped fishnet stockings, running mascara, and slips of satin and lace. listening back again, each track off live through this still feels so lustful, dirty, and imperfectly raw.

About The Author


“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
