i want to get in the sunrise.

it all started with a stumble and i get old and i get humble
the sky cracked a million ways, making me blind
and as the trees grew higher and higher and the fish began to fly
i went and stole some wings, and thought “why can’t i?”

after seeing radiohead live and sitting in a post-haze of non-moving traffic for over 2 hours, what do you really listen to? when brooklyn’s yeasayer‘s debut album all hours cymbals began to play, it worked perfectly from start to finish, beginning with the tribal harmonies, pounding drums and underlining simplicity of sunrise.

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
