Morning Music Notes – Tyrion Lannsiter in the Cizzastle

Let us kick off your morning with a 7 minute track from Swedish band Holograms. The track is called Lay Us Down, off of recent release Forever.

The black and white video is in an interesting portrayal of an interesting song, that starts off with a choir and morphs into a sprawling rock track.

Season 4 of Game of Thrones is about to be unleashed on us. What better way to promote a medieval kingdom show than to have a hip hop album. Big Boi, Common, Wale, and more all not only provide songs, but even have some Game of Thrones inspired raps. Let’s hope they aren’t as cringe-worthy in execution as they are in principle.

The piano that John Lennon and Paul McCartney played in the movie Help! is now up for auction. I assume it won’t cost much more than a hip hop album about Game of Thrones, right? The 1907 Bechstein Concert Grand is estimated to go for around $85,000 USD. (via Rolling Stone)

One of my favourite live bands, The Decemberists, return to the concert stage. On May 30, the band will play a benefit gig in Portland, OR and play their 2002 debut Castaways and Cutouts from front to back. At least you won’t have to act out the part of a screaming whale victim for this album. (Joke only for Decemberists fans who have seen them play The Mariner’s Revenge Song).
