We are digging these new street pieces from Seimiek, an artist from Peru. We like that every once and a while, we see art that kind of refreshens our enjoyment of good street work. There really isn’t a lot like this in the US these days, but maybe Peru has got something going for it.
There really isn’t anything better than the opening of the Pixies’ seminal Doolittle album. “Debaser” is one of the great songs in American Indie Rock, and triumph of songwriting and literate lyrical content. End it all with “Gouge Away,” and you have not only one of the best albums of 1989, but of the entire canon of American Indie.
There really isn’t anything more bizarre than airplane safety graphics. Seriously, they are the most devoid of feeling graphics and cartoons you can ever find. Luckily for us, there is a place in this world wide web that has commentary attached to each amazing “safety tip” you find on an airplane.
We aren’t quite sure that Radiohead does Xmas songs, so in light of this assumption, we are going with something light: Thom’s cover of Neil Young’s “After the Gold Rush.” There really isn’t anything sweeter sounding than this song in its original form, but Thom does nothing to take away from that. Enjoy.
This is the first song that Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett did in 1998 under the moniker Gorilla, later named Gorillaz and later a B-side to a Gorillaz single. It is definitely on the side project experimental vibe, but it really isn’t that bad of a song, and it shows the initial concept of a group that would go on to make interesting, progressive pop tunes with world conquering purpose years later.
