Music Video: King Krule "A Lizard State"

Music // Wednesday, January 08, 2014
One of the Juxtapoz offices favorite album of 2013 was King Krule's brilliant 6 Feet Beneath the Moon from XL Recordings. Not only does the 19-year old singer/songwriter have one of the most unexpected voices in contemporary music, but his songs are like mini cinematic escapes, a unique brand of storytelling. Director Jamie-James Medina takes this quality to heart and transforms Krule's jazzy "A Lizard State" into a Hitchcock showcase.

Saber's exhibition features a wide range of paintings, created with his signature technique of blending unforgiving aerosol art with exquisite abstractions in charcoal and oil. The works aim to be an aesthetic reflection on American society, just like the 1963 movie The Ugly American starring Marlon Brando.

Graffiti // Wednesday, January 08, 2014
In the past few years, with the influence of people like Revok exposing the possibilities the city offers, Detroit has become a spray-painting destination for domestic and international writers. The city is everything you would expect (rundown, dilapidated, dangerous, etc), but also has amazing resources available and is having a rebirth of creativity in many ways. In this new video produced by MOCA, Revok and Pose share their thoughts and enthusiasm on Detroit, all while painting two massive Nekst tribute pieces on the exterior of the MOCAD with the help of others.
