Now I don’t typically write about music at the museum, but there are some artists that I just love and I get really excited when they release new music. So I had to put this info out to the people! There seems to be a lot going on in what I would call the “real” music category right now…

The TIME has released some new music! One of the best bands of the past 30 years, their re-entry to music is a welcome presence. People always want to FUNK! They say the third TIME’s a charm.
It’s been almost three years now, that I posted three blogs about how FUNK has been and is still used in advertising and pop culture. It’s practically 2012 and ain’t a damn thing changed.
