Hercules and Love Affair “Blind”
As promised, Antony Hegarty joined Hercules and Love Affair on stage at the Meltdown Festival in London yesterday, where they performed their beloved 2008 single “Blind” together live for the very first time. Before the performance begins, Antony tells the very happy and funny back story to the song: “We recorded it in a 10-dollar studio”, he says. “We canned it for like two years because we were like, ‘This sucks.’” Watch footage of the song below, via Stereogum.

ASiEL is the freshest and most original artist in the Colorado music scene. He is also a brilliant out-gay rapper. His profound lyrics pour over the edge of anything you’ve ever heard before. Yes, ASiEL’s lyrics are obscene. But they are obscene with a purpose. ASiEL uses his quick and calculated poetry to attain a single goal: freedom. Freedom for all LGBT people – his brothers and sisters.
