How and Nosm "A Different Language" @ Jacob Lewis Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 06, 2015
Raoul and Davide Perre, aka How and Nosm, have, over the course of their careers, had their passports stamped excessively, producing a plethora of meticulously detailed murals (including the famed Bowery Wall), and illegally painting countless passenger trains and walls.

And we are sure some people will be on the flipside and like to see Courtney Barnett dressed up like a clown for the track "Pedestrian At Best" that will be on her forthcoming LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is out March 24 via Mom + Pop.
