The Cake Shop needs your help
For a variety of reasons, I tend to dislike pleas for crowd-sourced help for the arts. I’m not against the method of funding all together, but its become a lazy and indulgent means in many cases.

Revolutionary or Routine?
While reading up on more about Drones and “drone warfare,” I came across this somewhat empirical analysis of drones by Time Magazine’s Winslow Wheeler. Its a by-the-numbers assessment that doesn’t paint a pretty picture for drone advocates. Check out our POLY post on drones and their current use around the globe here.

Brooklyn’s Violens are back with the release of their second LP, True, via Slumberland on May 15. Direct comparison is a cheap way of measuring a band, but I’ll commit the sin anyway; Violens sound like an updated blend of The Smiths and Belle & Sebastian. I mean this in a complimentary way, as the threesome successfully manages to capture the indie instrumental virtuosity of...
