This is easily the riskiest and, potentially, most interesting signing Topshelf Records has made. The two songs they have out remind me of a more laid back Polica/CHVRCHES, which I’d want to hear more of before I cast any concrete judgements. I have a good feeling about this one though. I’ll shut up; just try it.
Jared Leto shouldn’t have played a trans woman in Dallas Buyers Club because he’s not a trans woman.
Jamie Foxx shouldn’t have played a homeless person in The Soloist because he’s not homeless.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shouldn’t have played a gay man in Be Cool because he’s not a gay man.
George Clooney shouldn’t have played an astronaut in Gravity (and Solaris) because he’s not an astronaut.
Arnold Schwarzenegger shouldn’t have played Terminator in Terminator because he’s not a cybernetic warrior from the future.
I’m pretty sure Brad Pitt isn’t actually a figment of Edward Norton’s imagination.
STOP ALLOWING ACTORS TO PLAY CHARACTERS THAT AREN’T EXACT REFLECTIONS OF THEMSELVES.
My friend Nick outlining my exact frustration with a lot of Tumblr’s arguments against Jared Leto’s Oscar win. I’m not a big follower of the Oscars; the argument is far more interesting to me, so I’m interested if you have thoughts/counterarguments on this.

I just played this on my radio show; the theme this week is bad acid trip music (which is an educational topic). Willing to bet we’re gonna get some calls/emails about this one…
