Last Friday night, our Juxtapoz editor was one of the few lucky people to get into the very special (and free) Blur concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of Converse Rubber Tracks. The show, which was brilliant, fun, and loose, featured the band playing almost the entirety of their new LP, The Magic Whip, with a few classics in the encore. Today, we have an exclusive of the new track, "Ghost Ship," and the encore of "Song 2" for you to watch today. Enjoy!

Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/ink-drawings-by-eugene-andolsek http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/ink-drawings-by-eugene-andolsek Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek
Using graph paper, a straight edge, a pair of compasses, and self-mixed colored inks, Eugene Andolsek created these wildly colorful and detailed geometric drawings. A stenographer during the day, Andolsek was untrained as an artist and would draw to escape the monotony of daily life while sitting at the kitchen table with his ailing mother. "The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.

Whatever twists and turns art may make in the relative favor or disfavor awarded any paradigm of style or content at a given moment, there is always a perennial divide between those who feel that less is more and those who feel, rather, that more is, well, never enough. These opposing attitudes, or competing aesthetics, have borne different names over the years, but let us simply call the former a kind of Minimalism and the latter a matter of Maximalism...
