Boxes of Death 5 @ Gauntlet Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 08, 2014
This Wednesday, October 8th, Boxes of Death 5 will open at its second destination, Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco. Boxes of Death is an art exhibition where 50 artists are each given their own coffin to do with what they want.

Music Video: CARIBOU "Our Love"

Music // Tuesday, October 07, 2014
We have been looking forward to Caribou's new LP, Our Love, to drop, and finally today its "officially" out for consumers to purchase. We think its one of his absolute best albums, and Caribou just released a video for the title track with music video director Ryan Staake of Pomp & Clout. The director say of the video, "In "Our Love", I wanted to create a slow, brooding film that contrasted the seeming limitless of youth with the reality of death in later years. The film (which was photographed by Luca Ciuti) was shot on location in Ireland, at the beautiful Lough Ine House, about an hour and a half outside of Cork."
