Continuing the theme of spooky music videos around Halloween time is producer Flying Lotus.

Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Your Taste in Music

10581097_735491803183331_1019362898_n

Taylor Swift’s album 1989 dropped this week, marking a full departure from her cosmopolitan country-pop sound. Vocally, she is breathy, jaded, lower than before. Musically, there is less guitar and more echoing drums. Everyone is freaking out about it—in its opening week, it’s probably going to break a million sales. Smart Girls on Stupid Music…
