Last week I talked a lot about our current border and immigration issues here in the US, and that is important, but you know what else is important? The Internet!
Not only does the internet allow you to do super awesome things like read this blog or CRASHING THE FCC Website – TWICE – in order to defend Net Neutrality, but the internet also allows you to discover up and coming artists like the inimitably talented Jana Pochop.
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of listening to Jana Pochop's newest EP Throats Are Quarries. (Take the 18 minutes to listen to all 5 songs, you'll be glad you did). Besides featuring songs that have a raw minimalism to them and haunting minor-key vocals, the songs are also immaculately well written. Pochop pulls out the stops in her poetry. The use of enjambment in "Adore You," "the spin on the needle, making love-/ly, lovely sounds..." Adds a visceral sense of yearning while the song discusses love and seemingly inevitable loss.

In the end, we matter.
