Andy Warhol, who infamously stated that, “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes,” was undoubtedly one of the first people to amalgamate his creativity with pop culture. The concept of having 15 minutes of fame is seemingly part of modern culture; we are saturated with reality TV, YouTube, Instagram and Vine stars…

If you find yourself discussing deep philosophical matters with a totally naked professor from London School of Economics -either you are tripping balls on acid in your living room, or- you might as well be at the Burning Man. This festival during the past 30 years gained a reputation for being, well….quite trippy. As almost every solid…

Tame Impala

in Artists/Musicans

My first thought about the band Tame Impala was that it might be an anagram of Vlad the Impaler. I was happy to discover that I was wrong. Urban legend told me that the main man Kevin Parker named the band after his Impala guitar, in a personal quest to tame it. Other sources (Wikipedia)…

Sea Pony

in Artists/Musicans

I love the sea, I love ponies, and I’ve just discovered a band called Seapony. This cutely named band is based in Seattle, with Danny Rowland as guitarist and songwriter, Jen Weidl as chanteuse, and Ian Brewer on bass. Their first record was the Seapony EP, self-released and modest. I enjoyed the track I really…

Moonduo

in Artists/Musicans

I saw Moon Duo play at a festival last year, and always had a funny feeling I’d come back to them. Ripley Johnson from Wooden Shjips plays guitar, and Sanae Yamada plays synths. There doesn’t seem to be much information available about her, but live videos and my own experience at No Direction Home (UK)…

Jhon Zorn

in Artists/Musicans

Madness is beautiful. Be it as it may, John has musical-genre outputs like a blackjack dealer has cards. His artistic footprints evidence his jewish roots and a curious taste for the occult, like all good film-music making arbitraries, this guy’s endeavour is huge. Formed as a multi instrumentalist, he’s musical journey begins after learning piano,…

US BABY BONES

in Artists/Musicans

Us Baby Bear Bones have just released their debut EP entitled “What Starts with A U End With An I”. I like their long ambiguous titles. I first encountered the band live in Brighton, at the legendary Prince Albert pub. The band is fronted by two girls, who were wearing matching outfits and a lot…

Day Joy

in Artists/Lifestyle/Music/Musicans

Day Joy is Michael Serrin and Peter Michael Perceval. Their music began from friendship and humble beginnings writing on the porch late at night in dreamy Orlando Florida. It moved into the living room where it has developed into the lush and layered recordings you hear now with the help of some modest recording equipment…

Weste

in Musicans

Last week I came across a new band that surprised me with a sound almost alien, as described later, and shrilly. Upon entering the site where you can hear the new band I realized that I knew the person in the photograph. Clara Trucco.   At that moment I wrote to her and she told…

Rick Owens

in Artists/Designers/Lifestyle/Musicans

Nuclear white is, apart from a colour that is not commonly seen on the street, a range of white used mainly for work uniforms; stewardesses, chemistry workers, doctors and even astronauts. For most artists, one of the most important and hardest things to find and incorporate into their creations is the “rough diamond” Not only…
