Most Instagram challenges are ridiculous, but some of the staff and a bunch of users are participating in #JanuaryRecordADay. It's one of those silly picture-a-day things, but it's vinyl, so we're all nerding out. Check out the challenge's rules in the replies, and leave your links if you're participating or want to talk vinyl.
Another #SoundNoSound clip is live, this one has vocals, a montage of some videos, and a shot of a vocalist's backside at the end. Brian Marquis, Brian Southall, and Culprit also posted their own "headphone videos" today. The timer on the website ends at 9:00am PST tomorrow. Final guesses?
Update: An AP.net user decoded the binary in the headphone videos as: "Everybody wants to lose control. Just to feel a little something that wasn't there before. Everybody hates to let things go. Clinging to the threads of what we know. The sickness longs to grow."
There's an new video up on Sound-No-Sound.com that has some audio - very programming heavy with distorted vocals throughout the track. A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, Colin Frangicetto, and Will Noon are the latest to tweet about it. The timer on the front page has just under 4 days left. Hear the sounds in the replies - anyone?
Who likes viral mysteries? The latest is the website sound-no-sound being tweeted out by quite a few musicians. After some snooping around you can find videos of Soupy Campbell, Justin Pierre, Shane Henderson, Vic Fuentes, and many others on the "control" page. And then there's also the "music box" page. We've also discovered Adam Pressley's name in the page source, who looks to be from the band Prussia. Ok, so that's what we currently know ... the rest is now in your hands.
Pop culture site Buzzfeed posted a music video called "Punch (Let's Be Real)" that went viral (not because it's good or entertaining). The Brothers (formerly The Great Valley) created a pop-punk version of the song which was posted about on the site. Listen to it in the replies.
