RIP, Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak poses with 008 RIP, Maurice Sendak where the wild things are RIP maurice sendak

Two really sad loses over the past 5 days, as yesterday we have lost Where the Wild Things Are author, Maurice Sendak, at the age of 83. He was seeing a bit of resurgence with his legacy over the past 4 years, with retrospectives in museums such as the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, as well as Spike Jonze taking his masterful children’s book to the screen with a wonderful, heartfelt interpretation.

Thom Yorke Tuesday: “Skirting on the Surface”

Back in 2009, when Thom Yorke was playing with Atoms For Peace, he played Los Angeles and debuted the track, “Skirting on the Surface.” A soft number, and a few years later, it sounds like something that the full band should be arranging, just as they did in Dallas this past month.

New Interesni Kazki Paintings

Creation 605x605 New Interesni Kazki Paintings mural Interesni Kazki

Every time we see the work of Ukrainian duo Interesni Kazki, we think these are two people speaking their own original language. Even though there are artists in the past who had done this storybook, fairy tale style paintings, you rarely see anything this vibrant on a massive building. The paintings are nice, too.

Radiohead started off the American tour for TKOL with a heavy TKOL songlist, mixed with some absolute classics, a WTF moment in “Meeting In the Aisle,” and then two new tracks in “Cut a Hole” and “Identikit.”

We are loving “Identikit.” Key to Radiohead success in the past: Ed singing. More Ed singing please.

One of our favorite street muralists right now, Hyuro, has been mightily busy in Valencia over the past few weeks. Hyuro just sent us a few images of a new work, Primaveravalenciana, a piece we can only assume is tied into the political and reform climate of Spain right now. Beautiful, poetic work.

“Black Herds of The Rain” featuring Conor Harrington

Black Herds Of The Rain from Andrew Telling on Vimeo.

One of our favorite artists of any era, Mr Conor Harrington, returned to Ireland from his new homebase in London to paint a series of 3 politically-charged murals. Andrew Telling, who has collaborating with Harrington in the past, does a great job of creating some mood in tension in the personal work from the fine artist. We recommend checking out Harrington’s exhibition at Lazarides Gallery in March… 2012.
