French artist and social activist JR opened a new exhibition, Encrages, at Galerie Perrotin in Paris this past November, and the gallery just released a video featuring British mainstays Massive Attack playing surrounded my massive (hey-o) projections of JR's work. A well done video by Guillaume Cagniard. The show officially ends on January 7, 2012.

When we look back on some of the better albums we have listened to in the Jux offices this year, Lykke Li's Wounded Rhymes and Shabazz Palaces' Black Up were tops on our list. We just learned that artist and creative director Leif Podhajsky designed artwork for both artists this year, as well as a group of great underground musicians and projects.

You have to love a band like Fleet Foxes, who release a critically acclaimed debut only to be just as solid on their sophomore effort. FF frontman Robin Pecknold's brother, Sean, just created this fantastic animation video for the epic track "The Shine/An Argument" off Fleet Foxes 2011 LP, Helplessness Blues. Great work. Stacey Rozich, whom we have profiled in the magazine before, did the character illustrations.

Whether you've heard Duck Sauce's new single Big Bad Wolf or not, we recommend you watch this video. It is strange, creepy, and completely insane, and those are exactly all the reasons that we love it.

Depending on who you ask, chewing mushrooms and holing up in your room isn’t exactly an A+ idea. But among all of the posters that could possibly melt off your wall, William Keihn’s psychedelic foray into low-culture is the kind of simulacra you want in your peripheral. Tyler Curtis interviews...

Youth Lagoon is a new band that has won over many of our friends recently. 22-year-old Trevor Powers has been gaining attention for his pleasing indie rock melodies, and this video directed by Tyler T. Williams is quite fantastic. All together, this is not a bad four minutes and forty seconds to spend staring at your screen and listening to your speakers.

Tomorrow night, September 9, C.A.V.E. Gallery of Venice, California, in association with Thinkspace Gallery, present Dig For Fire: Art Inspired by the Pixies, a group show curated by Kevin Titzer. Most people we know will vouch that the Pixies are worthy of a dedicated art show.

Who doesn't like a good bit of music poster art? Atlanta, Georgia-based Alvin Diec has a great body of poster artwork for a number of great bands, all done with a clever eye and detail to the bands sound and sensibility.

Jayson Scott Musson, frontman of the clever and satirical rap group Plastic Little, branches his creative touch beyond music. His creative vision that is apparent in his music is also apparent in his visual art. His series Barack Obama Battles the Pink Robots is a great example of such a vision.
