Week that Was (10-18-12 to 10-24-12)

Time for some new music. This week’s “Week that Was” features a lot of stuff I love, especially the Bago and Steffaloo tracks. Steffaloo’s album “Would You Stay” dropped earlier this week, and you can download the Bago mixtape right here. As far as the Mistah F.A.B. song, the 3rd verse is left open on purpose, with F.A.B. encouraging fans to record their own remixes. If you choose to do that, we’d love to hear them! Enjoy the rest, and let us know what we missed! Don’t forget to enter our contest for free Daughter/Choir of Young Believers tickets right here!

Pygmalion Music Festival: An Interview With Founder Seth Fein

Although writing about the final festival of the summer season brings me down a bit, just looking at the Pygmalion 2012 lineup makes it all better. Festival founder Seth Fein has jam packed the 3 day festival with the big name likes of Grizzly Bear, Dinosaur Jr, Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, and Best Coast, along with local acts Common Loon, Elsinore, and Santah. 54 bands will make their way to the Champaign-Urbana area overall, and you can catch all of them for the price of $100. To buy a festival pass, click here.

The great man that brings all of this to the generally quiet (maybe not quiet anymore) college town is Seth Fein. The Smile Politely founder (Champaign-Urbana’s independent online magazine) and Nicodemus Agency owner is a very busy man, as the titles show. Luckily he answered a couple questions for ACITM, which should help you learn more about the festival and CU’s musical savior himself. Check it out after the jump!
