It has been a while since the last Group of the Week (I had a feeling it turn out this way…).
Anyway, if you do a bold extrapolation from the two groups featured so far, I like Metal and Electro-Pop. While this represent a minor portion of the music I listen too, I will continue with James Blake — another Electro-Pop act. His latest album is entitled overgrown, and I really like it. He also has a cool webpage.
Today, I found a show he performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris.

I decided to display some more photos on my webpage and to remove the password protection from the photo gallery.

Let’s do a contrast to the first Group of the Week.
Burial does great electronic music, which I follow since his 2007 self-entitled album. Now there is a new EP Rival Dealer. Read about it on Pitchfork.
I don’t listen to Metal that much but I really like Woods of Ypres and particularly their last album Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light. The reason I write ‘last album’ and not ‘latest album’ is that their founder, singer and guitarist David Gold was killed in a car accident in 2011.
I intend to make Group of the Week a series, though it will certainly not be a weekly series. Let’s see 🙂

What a great idea! Make sure to switch channel with up/down buttons!
The 2013 Nobel Price in chemistry was awarded to computational chemists. I am very happy to see computational science receive the supreme honor in research.
Who says you need to spend a lot of money for a great music video?
The opposite demonstrated to perfection by the Ingenue video of Atoms for Peace (Thom Yorke of Radiohead‘s new side project).
