When I think of Diiv (Dive), I think of their music being like words running off the tongue. The Brooklyn band has an incredible rambling guitar energy, like a smooth rollercoaster ride. Hard to describe but completely captivating and full of atmosphere. You’ll find your senses trying to keep up with their incredible sound.
Goat is a Swedish band and their sound is raw Voodoo – world music taken-by-the-psychadelic horns. Every track sounds live and every song is explicit in its world music influence. Bongo drums never sounded as sexy as they do here. This album is a rare gem.
William Schaff is best known for his album cover artwork for the band Okkervil River. He is a tireless creator, working harder than any other artist I know, and has literally thousands of artworks. Whether sending off hand-drawn letters, embroidering while watching TV, or making remarkable scratch boards and etchings, his work will leave an indelible effect on you. His art weaves deep and dark religious and soul searching themes.
