Clues/"You Have My Eyes Now"

Clues are a band from Montreal and are comprised of ex-members of such bands as The Unicorns and The Arcade Fire. Together they make alternative/noise/rocky music with lyrics that are chillingly genuine. I haven't heard any album as new and fresh as this one in a long time.

Their new music video for "You Have My Eyes Now" was directed by Tim Heidecker from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

"Dear Diary"

So a while ago Vice was promoting a new book by Lesley Arfin.

Anyway it's called Dear Diary and it's SO good. It's a chronical of Lesley's real diary. She delves into her experiences with drugs and sex, and even interviews the people she wrote about now to get some sort alt-girl perspective. It's incredibly well-written and dark, and funny, and a great little gem of a book!
