on june 17, my brightest diamond shares her sophomore release a thousand shark’s teeth. recorded in berlin, new york and los angeles featuring twenty different contributing musicians and inspired by robert parke harrison’s imaginary photography, the paintings of anslem keifer, music of tom waits, tricky and french composer maurice ravel, so many beautiful elements are presented. flowing inside dark string arrangements against poetic lyrics, sincere heartfelt breaths and screams while theatrical pulsations penetrating through drums and hypnotic bass demonstrate a high class quality of magic and sound.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
