While we'll always be a fan of underwater photography and motion, that's not the full reason why we're showing you this music video. José Lourenço, a a writer and director based in Toronto, recently reached out to us to tell us about Muscle Relaxants, a new video he created for the indie rock band, The Rural Alberta Advantage.

Music is one of the most influential mediums in our lives. We listen to certain musicians or bands because they write songs that convey how we feel, or they inspire us to live our lives in a certain way.
These music philosophy pieces were created by Mico. "I like music and typography, so I combined them on this project," he says.…
Lately I have been geeking out to Beck's Record Club project on his website. The premise is that Beck gets together with fellow musicians to record a cover version of an album in one day. Previous collaborators have included Feist,… Continue

As we slip further and further into the digital age one thing that is being lost is the look of the bands you love. Albums from Pink Floyd to Britney Spears, from Johnny Cash to Slayer all had a style and feel that went along with the music. When I was a kid I would put on a CD and pull out the liner notes and read all the lyrics and check out the 'thanks' list to discover what other bands they were into. Thankfully there are people like…

I was at a gig last Friday and it was one of the highlights of my life, musically. We three (two friends and I), had managed to get our hands on tickets to one of two concerts Lisa Hannigan was playing in Galway's Róisín Dubh. The venue is notoriously small and we were packed in like sardines with 150 to 200 others, all of us anticipating a good show and nothing more. What we got however was a spiritual and emotional experience that will be difficult to top.
According to artist Jonathan Viner, young Russian women like to listen to music in the buff. Wearing high fidelity headphones, some of the girls seem to be calmed by the music, while others look a little freaked out.
