WHY 2012?

The economic crisis did not inspire a film about the collapse of civilization, director Brad Grimm said -- mythology did.
When actor and writer Sam Lawther began working on the concept three years ago, lore about the date 2012 made it seem like "the perfect time" for the film, Grimm said.The classical Mayan calendar will finish a 5,125-year cycle on Dec. 21, 2012, according to New Age writer Daniel Pinchbeck. On that day, the sun will also line up with the Milky Way galaxy -- a once-in-26,000 years event, according to Cornell University's "Ask an Astronomer" Web site.
But there were more surprises ahead. The crew decided to feature a white buffalo in the film. One of the rare animals was born in November 2006 at the Woodland Zoo in Farmington, in southwestern Pennsylvania.Grimm learned some Native American spiritual leaders see the animal -- and a black buffalo born at the zoo a few months later -- as signs.
"The white buffalo signified a warning, whereas the black buffalo meant the creator had given up on humanity," he said.
It was one of many "freaky" occurrences, he said."I don't want to sound weird, but something about what we're doing is kind of on the right track," he said.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home.
