"While my love for music is as preternatural as my love for sugar, oxygen, and affection, I’ve never considered myself to be a bonafide audiophile" – Scott Eastlick

It’s an app, its music, and its art. Animal Collective (the band) and artist Danny Perez collaborated on an installation titled Transverse Temporal Gyrus to help celebrate the Guggenheim Museum's 50th anniversary that combined visuals from Danny Perez and sounds and music from Animal Collective diced, spliced and repackaged by a computer program written by Stephan Moore and played over a 36 channel surround sound system set up on the museum's famous Frank Lloyd Wright-designed spiral ramp.

Now you can download the Transverse Temporal Gyrus app that will play three hours of Animal Collective’s music “in a new and unique way each time you run it.”

From the amazing Internet Archive's 78 RPMs & Cylinder Recordings here are 23 classic songs and stories available as free FLAC downloads collected in Voices of Christmas Past 1898 to 1922. My favorite is "Santa Claus Hides in the Phonograph" (Ernest Hare, recorded 1922) but there's plenty here for everyone including a lovely version of "Noel (Holy Night)" from 1916 by the Venetian Trio and a stirring rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" from 1921 by Navada Van der Veer.

YouTube just doubled down on their live music video investment by adding over 13,000 new titles to their Music Vault live music video showcase. Including performances from “Bill Graham Presents” and “King Biscuit Flower Hour” courtesy of a deal with Wolfgang’s Vault, there are so many great performances here I almost didn't know where to start. I only just came across this late last night but the selection appears to be broad, rich , and amazing. From single tracks to full concerts, from Muddy Waters to Miles to The Allman Brothers to St. Vincent, there's enough great footage here to ruin a week's worth of work time. Best of all, it's free.
