Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods that includes 15th Century Icons, the Hudson River School, and even Picasso.

One of the absolute best albums of the year in the rock category would be The War On Drugs' "Lost In the Dream." The opening track, "Under the Pressure," now has a music video directed by Houmam. If you like hazy, long road trips, perhaps accompanied by a few mushrooms, then you will enjoy this.

We watched this short video essay a week or so ago and found we were still thinking about it this morning, specifically this quote: "What Selznick sees as waste and excess becomes the essence of a different kind of cinema and sensibility, in which shots linger and veer off to include others, in which in-between moments seem to be essential, in which time and place seem more critical than plot or story."

We have a close Juxta-family connection with Action Bronson, and when we caught a look at his newest video for the track "Easy Rider," a video that pays homage to the 1969 Peter Fonda/Dennis Hopper film, we pretty became convinced that Action is having the most fun in the music industry at the moment. Directed by Tom Gould and coming off the upcoming LP, "Mr Wonderful," ... enjoy.

Behind the scenes of any functioning system exists a complex internal mechanism, acting and reacting, coordinating and handling all inner operations. Often, this intricate arrangement exists without an outward visible presence, but we trust it's there, all cylinders bobbing in sync...

Arcade Fire have turned most of their support of their last LP, Reflektor, into an ongoing art project. Stage personas, TV specials, lots of masks, etc. Seems only appropriate then for their newest music video for 'You Already Know," the band can be seen shooting what appears to be a slightly higher budget selfie video with talking/singing paintings. We approve.
