So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

Margaret Glaspy shares 'Emotions and Math' video

Before she heads out on tour, Margaret Glaspy has delivered new visuals for her 'Emotions and Math' song, which were directed by Glaspy. "I've never worked a desk job and this was my one opportunity,” Glaspy said of the video’s concept. “At some point in your life you miss someone with all your heart, whether it be your mom on the first day of school or a long distance relationship. Touring constantly, I know this feeling well. I wrote the idea for this video in the back of the van on tour, naturally, and flew out to LA between tours and shot it with the director, Claire Marie Vogel, who was a joy to work with."
