As you know, we are once again heading to the Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in SF this weekend (August 8-10, 2014), and while most people are getting ready for Kanye, Arctic Monkeys, Tom Petty, Lykke Li, Death Cab, or The Flaming Lips, there are a few bands of note playing in the afternoons that we are the most excited about. Woods would be one of those bands. They have always kept the DIY aesthetic true to their hearts, and we love their new video for "New Light" animated by John Andrews. Go see them on Sunday, August 10 at 1:10pm on the Sutro Stage. And get their new LP, With Light And With Love.

Sometimes you just walk right into a gallery and know you have something moving on your hands. That is what we felt like with Jenny Morgan. Her work is stunning, well-executed, alluring... and we have her on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Juxtapoz. We go to Jenny's Brooklyn studio to watch the development of her new body of work.

When you hit newsstands this month, you will see that we talked to Britt Daniel in our September 2014 issue about over 20 years of Spoon album covers. And, wouldn't you know? Spoon's new LP, They Want My Soul, was released today. We think its one of the top 5 albums of 2014, and to celebrate Britt being in the mag, the album coming out, there is a great collection of Todd Baxter's photos that made the cover of They Want My Soul being used for the video of one of the album's highlights, "Inside Out." Go watch.

Over the last month on Juxtapoz.com, we’ve been documenting the behind-the-scenes making of Jeremy Fish’s animated mural that coincides with his next art exhibition, Yesterdays and Tomorrows. Using various Adobe programs, including Adobe Creative Cloud, with animator Brady Baltezore, Fish has taken 100 11x14-inch ink-on-paper drawings and turned them into one continuous animation. This past weekend in San Francisco...

Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work . The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time. A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time...

Ahead of her upcoming show at Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday, we stopped by Deedee Cheriel's studio for a little visit! Deedee Cheriel transforms personal experience into folklore through an amalgam of influences both personal and universal. East Indian Art, spirituality, environmentalism, ritual, and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest all inform the artist's work and give context to often-personal narratives...

Just recently we got back into listening to Beck's 1996 epic "Odelay", and found that his 2014 album "Morning Phase" was quite nice as well. But the reason we are here today is because the very talented Sophie Mueller directed a video for Beck's "Heart Is a Drum" track. Black and white, a little eerie, and for the best track on the album all makes this a nice watch.

In 2013 Kevin Bradley, one of America's most prolific letterpress printmakers moved 30 tons of equipment across the country from Knoxville, Tennessee to his new studio, The Church of Type in Los Angeles. This video by Jeremy Lynch is a fascinating look into a man redefining the idea of contemporary letterpress and bringing his own vision and style to the epicenter of American Culture.
