Can we just talk about Sister Rosetta Tharpe for a second? If you don’t know who she is, you really should. A gospel rock singer who plays the guitar, I mean does it get any cooler that? She was super popular in the 30’s and 40’s and stirred up a lot of trouble among her traditional church followers by incorporating pop culture (which happened to be rock and roll at the time) into her music. She is THEE coolest chick ever, has a golden heart, and was rockin out even as a grandma. Watch or listen to any of her songs I promise you won’t be disapointed.
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

Car won’t start. Nuff said…….
Such a weird/amazing/accidental discovery. Listen to Fineshrine by Purity Ring, these guys are the reason I love music.
