new music monthly

SHINee Subbed turns 2!

Activity-wise, 2016 goes down as one of SHINee’s biggest years, with new music on a nearly monthly basis and international promotions up the wazoo. It was also a prolific time for personal achievements, with major film, drama, and solo album / concert debuts. More than 600 subbed video releases helped document the ride throughout, and I look forward to 2017 being just as busy and rewarding for both SHINee and Shawols alike! As always, thank you to everyone who follows and supports SHINee Subbed; I appreciate all the reblogs, kind messages, and help in spreading the word to other fans, especially those not on Tumblr! The more people that get to experience all these great subbers’ work and enjoy SHINee, the better! Let’s keep going! See you back here next year! ♥

As robots, [Daft Punk] are even more secretive than before. Bangalter smiles ironically and never lets you in on the joke. De Homem-Christo, on the phone from Paris, is a master deflector. When asked a question about what their image says about them, he responds: ‘I was not programmed to answer that.’

Introducing @music on Instagram

The music community is –– and always has been –– an important part of Instagram. For the past four years, we have become the home for artists big and small –– a place where people across the musical spectrum come to share stories, reveal their creativity and connect directly with fans. Today we’re launching @music, a new account dedicated to exploring music around the globe, from those who create it to the community around it. Each week, we’ll take a look at the musical experience on Instagram. That means showing you a different side of artists you know and love, like Questlove (@questlove), and introducing you to up-and-coming talents from around the world, like Tricot (@ikkyu193). It means highlighting music photographers, album illustrators, instrument makers and, of course, fans. In the Instagram tradition, we will also welcome community participation with a new, music-themed monthly hashtag project. Music is a huge part of all of our lives here at Instagram. It’s a passion of ours, and we know it’s a passion of yours. So follow along at @music –– we think you’ll discover something new. – Kevin Systrom, Founder and CEO Art by @jaredeberhardt
