I always love hearing what my friends are listening to and one of my friends sent me this song, Fort Knox by the Goldfish, the other day.

I am so upset that I have never heard of Goldfish before!  This song just makes me want to get up and dance, and the music video is so silly that I can not help but laugh.

I love interning here at World Music/CRASHarts because I get exposed to so many new types of music that I would never have the pleasure of hearing if it wasn’t for them.

I decided to finally give Agnes Obel a listen because I kept finding reviews praising every live performance she has played.  I found her on spotify, and I have been listening to her second ablum Aventine all day!

I suggest you give Agnes a listen, and to get you started, here is my favorite song off the album, “Dorian.”

Make sure not to miss her when she makes her Boston debut at the Sinclair on November 10th.

I am constantly trying to find new music, but because of that sometimes I forget about the music I used to love. Here is an EP, Dark Star by Jaymes Young, that came out last September.  He came onto my shuffle while at work, and now I am back to having him on repeat.

This is the new fashion film for Rag & Bone’s new fall/winter line of clothing.

The dancing in the video is choreographed by Kyle Abraham, who is one of our upcoming performers!

If you love this short film, make sure not to miss seeing Kyle Abraham live in Abraham.In.Motion, Friday October 10th at The Institute of Contemporary Art.

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music
Billy Joel

It’s not Goodbye, it’s See You Later!

Today is my last day as the marketing intern at World Music/CRASHarts (I could cry), and there just so happens to be a torrential downpour going on outside. Hmm… coincidence?  

I am SO grateful for the opportunities I was able to experience while here, and World Music/CRASHarts will always be near and dear to my heart! Over the past couple of months I have been able to discover new artists and styles of music, broaden my marketing and communication knowledge, work with some pretty awesome people, and even learn how to navigate through parts of Boston (the road design here is questionable).

I’m going to be heading into my bittersweet senior year of college in a couple of weeks and couldn’t have asked for a better last “official” summer as an undergrad!

Lastly, much thanks to all you world music fans for keeping up with my Tumblr blog posts while I’ve been here. It feels like I just started posting a couple of days ago, but nonetheless, it’s been a blast. :)

Seeya later,

As you begin to realize that every different type of music, everybody’s individual music, has its own rhythm, life, language and heritage, you realize how life changes, and you learn how to be more open and adaptive to what is around us.
