RTJ2 has been one of our favorite albums of the last year and probably has been on repeat in the Juxtapoz office quite frequently. They just released their latest video, directed by A.G. Rojas, for "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck). Featuring Shea Whigham as a police officer (of Boardwalk Empire) and Keith Stanfield as a young black man (Selma), the video is as powerful as the track itself.

In this short documentary, Martin Machado, who is featured in our April 2015 issue, tried to answer some of the common questions that he usually gets about the time he spends on ships. "The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on my six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal.

Earl Sweatshirt (unhappily) dropped his latest song "Grief" along with a track list for an upcoming album. The music video, which also unexpectedly appeared today, follows Kendrick Lamar's surprise release of "How to Pimp a Butterfly" yesterday. Intentional or unintentional, we don't mind, we've been craving some new music and are in hip hop heaven.

The Juxtapoz month of Björk appreciation continues (her classic Post album is the cover of our April 2515 issue).

For his third solo exhibition at Backwoods Gallery, Stephen Ives dives into a raw purgative interpretation of death and fate on the personal as well as grand human scale. Drawing inspiration from the iconic equestrian figures of classical Europe, their heroic portrayal of Great Men and the symbiotic relationship with their mounts carrying them unwittingly onward, Ives attempts to create moments of truth expressing the corruption and purity of the human situation as well as the diminutive nature of our endeavours.

As you know if you follow Juxtapoz Magazine, we spend a week each year in Norway for the Nuart Festival. For the 2014 festival, Nuart founder Martyn Reed was filmed by Hypebeast to capture the essence of not only the festival, but the town of Stavanger, Norway and the concept of bringing and developing art culture on the West Coast of Norway. We think you should watch because Reed gives a succinct message about the positive impacts that any art culture can have on a population regardless of genre.
