Back in July, Lagunitas and Juxtapoz helped sponsor one of our favorite musician's art shows; Courtney Barnett. In the midst of a worldwide tour for her infectious new LP, "Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit." Well, that is Courtney's art all over that cover, as well as a bunch of drawings she has been making on tour over the years. We interviewed her at the time, and now we have a little video to show you of the opening and the vibe.

Remember a few weeks ago when we told you we were excited about the new Deerhunter album, Fading Frontier, out on 4AD on October 16, 2015? Well, we are still really excited about the Atlanta bands new LP, and now even more so because the track "Breaker" has a video, a video that is simple and nice, for a track that is a nice return to a more experimental pop sound that made us love the band in the first place.

There are a lot of musicians who also paint or create other forms of art, and we have covered many on the site and in the mag in recent years. Arrington de Dionyso is one musician and artist we really love right now, and our friends at Saint Laurent made us aware of his fine art-side of his career recently, and we gathered a great group of works from Arrington, which seem to compliment, if not illuminate, his music.

Deerhunter is back! The Georgia-band had been on a slight hiatus due to lead singer Bradford Cox being hit by a car, but now they are set to release Fading Frontier on 4AD on October 16, 2015. Which means by then we will have a ton of leaks and tracks already heard, the first one being a video for the song "Snakeskin" directed by Valentina Tapia.

FKA twigs has to be one of the leading musicians working in the world of art and video right now, with just a fantastic canon of crazy work already in her young career. The newst WTF goodness comes on her new 16-minute music video for the release of her new EP, M3LL155X, which includes treatments for the tracks "Figure 8", "I'm Your Doll", "In Time", and "Glass & Patron". She calls this opus "an aggressive statement conceptualising the process of feeling pregnant with pain, birthing creativity and liberation."

First thing you notice when speaking with Chuck D is that voice. It has the command of someone who has spent over 30 years as one of the most important MCs and intellectuals, not only on the subject of hip-hop, but of music and culture as a whole. Leader of the seminal musical force and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Public Enemy, Chuck is also an accomplished artist who earned his degree in graphic design at Adelphi University and became one of the originators of fusing logo work and art into hip-hop.

Update from an older post, with evidence that these guys are really good: Tame Impala's new LP, Currents, out today, July 17 through Modular, is really good. On the occasion, we wanted to share the new video for the track "'Cause I'm a Man" because its the summer sounds we prefer. Tame Impala and lead singer/songwriter Kevin Parker always seems to have a very good feel for the visual aspects of his music, and having the Currents cover be done by Kentucky-based artist Robert Beatty is pretty cool, too. Can't wait to see them at Outside Lands this August! Check it after the jump.
