Happy Spirit Day from Tumblr
Spirit Day was created in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a way to support bullied LGBT youth. This year, Spirit Day is October 19, and Tumblr’s staff joins with communities worldwide — inside and outside of Tumblr — to wear purple in support of anti-bullying efforts and LGBT rights generally.
MASSIVE ATTACK, WARPAINT & MARK LANEGAN - CRISTALISED (The XX cover)
Last week, UK singer/Tricky collaborator Martina Topley-Bird shared this fine new cover of The XX’s “Crystalised” on her Facebook page. While details on collaborators (or the project it might be previewing) were left rather scant, it’s clear her past duet partner Mark Lanegan is taking the Oliver Sim part here. And given that the track first appeared on the SoundCloud stream of Massive Attack, whose 2010 LP featured Topley-Bird on vox, it sounds like they have that British trip-hop duo producing or performing as well.
“More to come soon,” Topley-Bird writes, so perhaps this is set for Lanegan’s forthcoming covers album or her own follow-up to Some Place Simple. Either way, it’s a great groove and their voices make a perfect frayed/silky match. Hear it above. (www.TwentyFourBit.com)

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
