Friends, Romans, Countrymen – lend the 3rd Millennium Sound your ears.
I recently introduced 3rd Millennium Sound (3MS), a Facebook group devoted to sharing and discussing a particular strand of really interesting emerging music styles, including Electro-Pop, Darkwave, Industrial, contemporary Trip-Hop, Shoegaze/Dreampop, maybe a little EDM, perhaps some TrancePop, etc.
Group member contributions have been wonderfully illuminating – even I had no idea how many fantastic artists there were working this vein. So today, for Saturday Video Roundup, a sampling. Let’s start with some shimmering ElectroPop hookiness from Sweden’s Melody Club.
Farmer Moran needed a new workhorse, so he went to the local auction. There he spotted a strong, lean stallion he thought would be fine.

Moran, though, was confident in his own judgment. Undeterred, he outbid everyone for Lightning.
There are barely words to articulate Berry’s importance to Rock & Roll.

Dedicated to my girlfriend Julie, who had surgery this week and who loves marbles as much as I do.
I’ve been working on a little series. I have always loved glasswork of any sort, and marbles have fascinated me since I was a kid. My macro lens provides me with a chance to explore this interest in new ways. Here are a few selections from the set.
Apollo 18. I did five variations here. This one – the original – seems to have been the favorite of a majority of people expressing an opinion.
The Attorney General should resign – whether he’s guilty or not. Here’s why.
By now you have probably read a good bit about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and whether or not he unlawfully met with the Russian ambassador to discuss the 2016 Presidential election. There is a great deal of lawyering on the horizon, but for the moment here’s what we need to understand.
In his confirmation hearing Sessions was asked directly about contact with the Russians by himself or the Trump campaign. At that moment, there were a couple of ways to answer.
