The Pentacles - Now You’re Gone

Someone should make a tee shirt that reads “Geeks Do It Better”. It would be sold at American Apparel and then removed from the stores after the very slight backlash. The Pentacles, a band I discovered via the Stuff Smart People Like podcast and they discovered via the This Is What A Scientist Looks Like Tumblr, is the joint musical effort of an immunologist, a geneticist, a journalist, an astrophysicist and a computational biologist. Feel like you haven’t done a lot with your life yet?

I gave their album, Tête-à-Tête, a listen on their Bandcamp page and, once pay day arrived, decided to download it on iTunes. I have “fuzzy morals” on whether or not it’s okay to pirate digital media but I definitely feel that some artists, particularly smaller acts (ones that probably aren’t collecting Bugattis in their massive garage) deserve a little cash for their work. Pay it forward folks. That’s how you use that phrase, right? I’m not quite as smart as these guys so I think I get a pass on that if I’m wrong (and also if I used too many commas).
