Music for Aliens: Campaign Aims to Reissue Carl Sagan’s Golden Record (via NYTimes)

Carl Sagan’s Voyager Golden Record — of sounds of Earth, recorded greetings and an eclectic mix of music that was sent into space — has long been out of print and pretty much unobtainable for decades.

One copy of the record is attached to NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft, which has entered interstellar space, the farthest artifact ever tossed out by humanity. A second copy, on Voyager 2, is not quite as distant, just 10 billion miles away.

Both are receding from Earth at more than 35,000 miles per hour.

Support Ozma Records’ campaign to create a reissue of this interstellar message for extraterrestrials right here.

Booklet photos from one of the most important rap albums in recent memory. Compton-born recording artist Kendrick Lamar’s Sophomore effort, To Pimp A Butterfly, is a profound, musically eclectic masterpiece that sonically comments/ peeks into the joys, sadness, anger, love, ugly and beauty of the African-American condition during a socially volatile, “post-Racial” America…while remarkably avoiding temptation to point blame. It does, in its stead, provokes a discussion about who we are, where we’re going and whether we’ll be together whenever (or where ever) “we” arrive. 

In an era where the white noise of trap turn-up tunes seem to dominate the airwaves and force us to believe it’s better to party in order to tolerate a message, TPAB is a challenging album. It challenges us to sit down and listen instead. My favorite rap album to date. 



Kevin Parker from Tame Impala performing at Coachella 2015. Who can wear scarves better than Kevin Parker? Not many. His eclectic style with this simple tee and jeans is expressed through a simple scarf (and props to the long hair), his style really suits his expressive and psychedelic rock style of music.
