Madlib Invasion: Madlib Lecture in Sao Paulo, 2002

Music // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Back in 2002, before Madvillainy, before Champion Sound, before the first volumes of Beat Konducta, Madlib travelled to Sao Paolo where he gave a shy but insightful and inspirational lecture at Red Bull Music Academy. In this session he reveals the secrets of his choice equipment, a $300 sampler. He says, "Anyone could do it. You just gotta use your brain." We say, "That's some brain."

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
We love checking in on on one of our all-time favorites Pat Perry. He recently updated his blog with sketches and pictures from a cross-country motorcycle roadtrip that included "sleeping in lizard dust behind Dollar General, breaking down a hundred miles from any town in Texas, getting directions from junkies, getting advice from junkies, getting made fun of by junkies, camping in the Walmart parking lot, being harrassed by police...

No Fuckhead you are not a Storyteller

Design // Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister, creator of the firm Sagmeister & Walsh, talks about the transformation of the term storyteller in to a meaningless buzzword. “Story-teller” has been swept in to the lexicon of trendy art-speak, which bears many similarities to corporate jargon, in that it is a way to say something that sounds good without having to think too critically about it. 

Sam Falls Pixel Crunches EFG's Singing Bridges

Music // Monday, July 28, 2014
Sam Falls’ video for EFG’s “Singing Bridges” delivers masterfully deconstructed slices of sewn together Spaghetti Westerns while psych-rockers Imaad Wasif (vocals/guitar), Josh Garza (drums) and Tom Biller (bass) channel classics of their own: pristine echoes of Bowie, The Cure, Blue Cheer and Jesus & Mary Chain, all woven meticulously into the fuzzed-out track. For the world's dystopian love songs, the sounds of EFG, coupled with Falls’ manipulation of iconic, ‘deinterlaced’ analog films, does not disappoint. So adjust your speakers accordingly and watch the Technicolor trip to the badlands here.

"Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album" @ Royal Academy of Arts, London

Photography // Monday, July 28, 2014
Strapped with a Nikon F, Hollywood rebel and innovative director Dennis Hopper was adamant on documenting his experiences between the years 1961-1967, declaring “the world is on fire with change…”. Hopper used this period to foster his creativity, accruing over 18,000 photographs, including images of the Hell’s Angels, Civil Rights activists and the contemporary icons in art, film and music. 

"Fragments" by Patricia Voulgaris

Photography // Monday, July 28, 2014
Fragments is a collection of abstract, black and white constructions by New York artist Patricia Voulgaris’. Her process is a visual metaphor for the way we distort and recollect memories. Compositionally speaking, the photographs are all quite different from the next, but each image contains a focal point which punctures the otherwise disorientating image.

Just a casual drive in town with giant children all around.

Our favorite track, "Do You," has new video directed by Hiro Murai. Watch it. Enjoy it.
