Indie alt-rock band Son's of an Illustrious Father release introspective single before heading out on worldwide tour.
Alt-rock trio Sons of an Illustrious Father, comprised of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and actor Ezra Miller continue tearing up the indie scene with their unique, "genre queer" sound with their latest, self-titled single.
The Howard Bilerman produced track features a creative blend of retro guitar lines, attention-grabbing vocal harmonies, and entrancing strings, arranged by The Dears frontman Murray A. Lightburn. The single produces a psychedelic vibe, with lyrics that are reflective and engaging, touching on the experiences the group has shared over the years and their evolution as a band.
In an interview with Highsnobiety, Aubin shared that the single's message "started as more of an active reflection" and that "It feels like a moment of seeing us from afar, but also being very much ingrained into the experience which was in our lives, and was particularity for this tour." Miller and Larson followed up this statement by saying that when the track is performed, there are various feelings of intention and affirmation, almost like a "physic manifesto."
In addition to the release of a new song and the increasing popularity of their 2018 album, Deus Sex Machina, Sons have begun a massive worldwide tour, including shows opening for Priests in the U.S. this summer and a headline show at the Village Underground in London.

Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
