First Friday: Elvis Costello “No Action”

We woke up this morning and really wanted to hear “No Action” from Elvis Costello stellar 1978 album, This Year’s Model. They really don’t make them like Costello anymore, except for the fact about an entire generation of new bands sound exactly like him.

The NY Times just called Deerhunter frontman, Bradford Cox, a lo-fi genius. We don’t have much of an argument due to the fact that over the past 5 years, there hasn’t been many bands we have enjoyed more than Cox’ main Deerhunter project. Atlas Sound, his side project, ain’t bad either, and you can stream the Atlanta man’s Parallax here.

Matthew Feyld, Jaret Penner and Michael Swaney open a show at GALLERY STEINSLAND BERLINER in Stockholm, Sweden this August 26th, and we don’t really know what else to say about it besides the fact that those little humps up there are cool. The only reason we know about this space is because Erik Foss showed here last year, and that show looked good.

Quoddy Factory Visit Video

Quoddy Workshop – Lewiston, Maine from Oliver Wilkins on Vimeo.

We own a few pairs of Quoddy shoes, and we have always appreciated the fact that they are handmade in Lewiston, Maine. We have always hoped that they were handmade by some old Maine dude, and it looks like they have been made by some Maine dude who really cares about quality. This is why you buy American. ….

There isn’t much to say about MF Doom other than the fact that he is one of the most talented cats in all of music, not just hip-hop. And through all the albums and projects he has worked on in the past 10+ years, his debut, Operation: Doomsday remains our all-time favorite. Music wise, it opens with “Doomsday,” and closes with the ’80′s cartoon ode, “I Hear Voices, Pt 1.” Enjoy.

… And this is another song to cry to…

Not even that the song is sad, but Sigur Ros “Untitled 4″ is like cutting an onion: there is something in the guitar tone and the lead singer’s voice that causes your eyes to water. That and the fact that this is one of the greatest songs ever. We are sure someone is sad or longing or drifting on a glacier here.

Andrea Wan is a Canadian artist working out of Vancouver B.C.  Her illustrations have a very unique style and something about her use of colors with the subjects she chooses really pulls you in.  We like the fact that it is cleaver, surrealistic and sometimes a little dark and strange.

Kanye West for ID magazine

3653c1ebb805x403.jpg Kanye West for ID magazine tom ford the sure fire sporting duds mega homme headlines fact culture

Kanye is sort of the sure-fire way to sell things these days, fresh off his mega big album and the fact that he is a celebrity willing to blow up because he feels that blowing up is the only thing he can do. No filter, big money.

Kanye is in ID magazine, interviewed actually, and is in the spread sporting duds by Tom Ford, Dior Homme and Erickson Beamon, stuff to us that never really looks good on anyone who isn’t famous.

“That’s Dior Homme and not Dior Homie.”

Not quite sure what is weirder? Kanye West showing up at the Facebook offices for what appears to be motivational speaking/performing/singing a new song a cappella, of the fact that he is calling his latest album, or possibly calling it, Good Ass Job… ? Bottom line, we love all of it. Weird and weirder with Kanye means better and better music. Nice suit, too.
