Born in 1999, Asthmatic Kitty Records was originally conceived as a platform for musical projects by a community of artists from Holland, Michigan, a small city on the shore of Lake Michigan. Some were Holland natives, and others had come to attend local colleges and universities. While the original Holland nucleus has now dispersed to various parts of the country, the fellowship is still growing, with new friends and shared projects with other independent labels. Asthmatic Kitty is now based in Lander, Wyoming, Indianapolis, Indiana and New York City. Asthmatic Kitty was named after Sara, a voluptuous orange and white longhair who wandered out of the woods in 1995, pregnant, starving, and afflicted with various parasites and ailments, including feline asthma. Although she still wheezes a bit, especially when being chased by her sister Tabby, Sara today enjoys a healthy and happy life of luxury. Cast-off animals make the best pets!

Animated by Sufjan Stevens

Lyrics:
Praise the mountain and the rain
All the gifts that still remain
But the greatest gift of all
And the law above all laws
Is to love your friends and lovers
And lay down your life for your brothers
As you abide in peace
So will your delight increase

As the mystery of the cross
Asa Lovejoy lost the toss
And the fountain in the rain
Where my sorrow still remains
So I run to my friends and lovers
I lay down my life for my brothers
As I abide in peace
So will my delight increase

Sufjan Stevens - Tonya Harding (Official Audio)

Buy/listen here: http://smarturl.it/tonya-harding Lyrics: Tonya Harding, my star Well this world is a cold one But it takes one to know one And God only knows what you are Just some Portland white trash You confronted your sorrow Like there was no tomorrow While the rest of the world only laughed Triple axel on high A delightful disaster You jumped farther and faster You were always so full of surprises Are your laces untied? What’s the frown on your face for? And just what are the skates for now? Tell me which is your good side? Are you lonely at night? Do you miss all the glory And the mythical story Of the Olympian life? Yamaguchi in...

Order it here: http://smarturl.it/greatest-gift Lyrics: As if you know the story of Wallowa Lake: Leviathan first hid in the deep where her children sleep She kept them hidden from the plague But have you heard the story of my mother’s fate? She left us in Detroit in the rain with a pillow case Fortune for the paper weight We followed her to Joseph, near the Indian raid She wept among the weeds, hide and seek, for the fallen chief Spathiphyllum on his grave And like the cedar wax wing, she was drunk all day We put her in the sheet, little wreath, candles on the crate As the monster showed its face As she...

Get it here: http://smarturl.it/greatest-gift Lyrics: Suppose the world was not informed by real estate or power lines The hidden river of my life, pursued by love The whispering stone, the valley ford, the candy corn, the spirit finds Abuse has left me on on my side, a single stone I’m a walker, I’m a dreamer, tree house greeter, pentacostal preacher I’m a rocker, yeah I’m a schemer, compost preacher, pioneer believer A small betrayal, a simple thought, to shrug it off, unoccupied The precious lake, the river bed, the rising tide The sad surprise, the day of flags, the flooding fox, the clever chime Awake my soul, awake my heart,...

OK Go - Obsession - Official Video

This video has a lot of flashing colors. If you're susceptible to seizures, be careful, please. Your viewing experience will look significantly better if you manually set your YouTube resolution settings to 1440p or 2160p (for desktop, click the gear icon in the lower right). Just leaving it on “Auto HD” results in some pretty intense distortion during a few sections, because when the the colors and patterns get crazy, there’s actually just too much information flying by for YouTube’s normal HD compression. We broke the matrix. The good people of YouTube have been working with us to...

Sufjan Stevens "Futile Devices" Live on Soundcheck

HEAR THE FULL INTERVIEW AND PERFORMANCE: http://wny.cc/nmATYT Sufjan Stevens has made music about historical events, roadways -- even serial killers. But his latest project, electro-pop album "The Age of Adz" (pronounced "odds"), is an inward-focused project dealing with the primal side of themes like love and death. Plus, there's a whole cosmic thing going on too. Before back-to-back concerts in Prospect Park next month, he joins us to perform live in the studio.
