Ultraviolence

Lana Del Rey is such a bundle of contradictions. This new track “Ultraviolence” is no different.  She has such hard hitting/dark lyrics, but she make this sound like a pop love song.  Her sweet, angelic voice masks her lyrics about domestic violence.  No artist can sing these lyrics “I can hear sirens, sirens. He hit me and it felt like a kiss I can hear violins, violins Give me all of that ultraviolence”, and make people sing along and feel like its a love song.

‘Sideboob’ is real!

Fake ‘Orange Is the New Black’ band has a real album! Joe Caputo’s band, Sideboob is selling their music online.  Early in the second season, Caputo’s passion for music was reaveled and became a good part of the storyline. But another reveal might be even better: You can actually listen to some of his band’s music online, and even buy their album.

The online bio states:

SIDEBOOB, formerly THE ALBERT ROTH PROJECT, formed in a garage five years ago when four friends playing poker were hit with a lightning bolt of rock genius. A band the likes of which had never been seen before in the upstate New York area, SIDEBOOB takes its influences from a wide variety of sources ranging from classic rock to arena rock. The band’s name originates from that time Gabe wore a tank top to the neighborhood pool and his wife wouldn’t stop commenting on how much SIDEBOOB he was showing. Their latest single, “Workers in the Mine,” is heralded as their “best song to date*.
released 06 June 2014
SIDEBOOB is Albert Roth (Guitar, Vocals), Joe Caputo (Bass), John Glickman (Guitar), and Gabe Ronley (Drums).
