"I know people have said this about the last couple of years but, for me, this year feels like the first time it’s been entirely driven by capitalism. I say that on behalf of myself. It now feel like it’s not celebrating the culture of the record store and why they’re so good; it’s about the releases."

WOAH

Converge “Precipice / All We Love We Leave Behind” video by Craig Murray, benefit apparel released

Watch the video here: http://pitchfork.com/news/54784-converge-share-precipice-all-we-love-we-leave-behind-video/

We are proud to release the film/video for “Precipice / All We Love We Leave Behind” by director Craig Murray (Converge, Oxbow, Narrows, etc). Both songs appear on the Converge “All We Love We Leave Behind” album, out now via Epitaph/Deathwish Inc.

The video was conceptualized by Murray, using the narrative put forth of the death of a canine companion as told in J. Bannon’s lyrical writings. Murray uses powerful visual metaphor and imagery to communicate the crushing weight of loss and the strength of unconditional love the song explores.

To coincide with this release, we are offering an apparel design featuring visuals from the film/video. The design is available through the Converge online store. 

100% of the proceeds from this design will go to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Massachusetts.

This work is dedicated to all who have lost their best friends; thank you for all you have given us.

Banner Pilot - Skeleton Key

Half asleep with the sun coming up out east.
We’re driving down Garfield Ave when you said a strange and significant thing:
I can remember the words “this was, a beautiful night,
It won’t ever happen this way again.”

No my dear, nothing much grows around here.
We carry our roots with us, a couple of weeds, pulled up.

Misguided girl you’ll be the heroine of my book.
The plot is the course we took,
The setting can’t be no where else in the world.
And the story opens up with you,
Your broken dreams and cheap perfume.

Laura on Strombo!!! <3

damn, this is an intense interview.

Seriously excellent interview. I didn’t know she’d moved to Chicago. Maybe I’ll run in to her some time. Of course, I’m far too much of a suburban dork to get be her friend, but she seems so very cool and down to earth.

Whenever I watch an interview with a trans women I brace myself for when the interviewer asks something offensive but it never happened here so yeah, it was pretty great. Deff worth a watch.  

Also, goddamn Laura just keeps getting hotter. < 3

What a respectful and actually kind sweet interview.

This is dude (George Stroumboulopoulos) is a pretty legit interviewer, so I’m not surprised that he did well. Well worth the twenty minutes of your time. Also Joan Jett shows up for a hot, glorious, second.
