Music of the Day: More Yoakam!

Aw, hell; if I’m going to post the Yoakam/Owens duet, I may as well post the next song from that performance as well (and a Yoakam classic). Feels like a requiem for my recent California dreaming.

Music Biz: Old Money Edition

The Hip-Hop Hypocrisy of Chick Guevara: or, Boringly Bourgeois in Brentwood with the Bronfmans (Bang-Bang)

I know this sounds like an exaggeration, but I seriously was waiting this week to see the Readers’ Comments section on this NY Times Magazine piece on M.I.A. Comments such as this one made it all worthwhile!

They released the piece earlier this week and I read a bit, until I got bored. Do I need another illustration that the best way to “make it” in the music biz (read: anywhere in the arts) is to marry into old money?
