Well, the first review is in, this time by way of Lauren Kinney who fuckin live-tweeted her first listen. Read from the bottom up. Check out her music: http://www.laurenkinney.net

And yes, that is her embroidery work taking on the cover artwork of this past April’s Lamb EP. She is a multi-faceted, multi-talented woman living in Los Angeles, California, a city which may or may not sink into the Pacific sometime soon (just a reminder).

Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State. 

As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion. 

So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
