Week that Was (9-13-12 to 9-19-12)

My browser has been running slow all week because of all the songs I kept open after hearing to remember to post them here. So I’m taking a hit in the facebook creeping/online trolling department to keep bringing you good music. It better be appreciated!  A lot of cool stuff coming in this week, thank you to everyone that’s been sending. Keep it up! We’ll be debuting a new weekly feature on the blog, with rising artists creating a playlist and answering some fun questions. Stay tuned, and let us know what you think of the  week that was!

Week that Was (8-30-12 to 9-5-12)

North Coast has passed and we are left with the transition to fall. Luckily Pygmalion festival is right around the corner, so get ready for tons of awesome ACITM posts around that! The feature band this week is anonymous New York duo MS MR. Check out their freaky video below, as well as the rest of the “Week that Was” after the jump. Enjoy! As always, keep the music coming!

Top 10 Acts to See at Pygmalion

If you’re a U of I student tired of totes ragin’ every night at the krazy keggers at Sigma Delta Zeta Phi Omega Zeta Beta Kayta and want to see good music for 5 days (instead of hearing Bruno Mars and New Boyz at the ∑∆πΩZßK house), this festival is for you. If you’re a Chicago resident still really upset that Pitchfork/Lollapalooza/North Coast had to end, and just a little more music would make you feel better, this festival is also for you. Pygmalion Music Festival can be seen as summer’s last stand, or fall’s bright start. The festival that takes place September 21-25 offers 90 bands playing at 10 different locations throughout the Champaign-Urbana area.

As we did with Lollapalooza, picking the shows you could not miss and basically crafting your schedule for you (It’s ok to admit it), here are the top 10 acts to see at Pygmalion.
