Michael Hurley

By Luke Rathborne in New Music on Tuesday 28 June 2011

Michael Hurley is one of my favorite musicians and I always try to mention him when I get the chance. His records are honest, funny, and heartbreaking (always simultaneously) and I feel like he fills in the gaps where the sadness pours out. My personal favorites are Hi-Fi Snock and Uptown and Armchair Boogie, as […]

Nico Muhly is a young classical composer and arranger based out of New York City. I first came across his work in relation to arrangements he composed for another artist, Sam Amidon’s record, All Is Well, and one day found myself riding an elevator with him. I was too shy to say hello.

By Luke Rathborne in New Photography on Tuesday 28 June 2011

Will McBride is responsible for some of the most beautiful and honest photographs I’ve had the chance of encountering. His work collected in, ‘I, Will McBride’ is really fascinating and spans his career from iconic shots of JFK to reprinted telegraph correspondences with legendary Indian filmmaker Satijit Ray. My favorite photographs of McBride’s seem to capture a rare and unadorned, if not very momentary, kind of beauty.

By Luke Rathborne in New Film on Tuesday 28 June 2011

Lukas Moodyson is one of my favorite Swedish directors. His film, Together [Tillsammans in Sweden] was one of the most beautiful films I’d seen growing up as a teenager in Maine. It’s a story about a mother and daughter escaping a troubled home to live in a commune in 1970′s Sweden, and the influence and change they bring about to the group as a result.

Olaf Breuning’s work is illusory, magic, and funny. He is a Swiss-born artist based out of New York whose explosion of influences (from Slasher B-movie kitch to satanic cults) always manages to create something engaging.

By Luke Rathborne in New Art on Tuesday 10 May 2011

Bas Jan Ader was one of those mysterious artists who wasn’t with us for very long. The visual work he left behind is very brief but is not easily processed or forgotten. His final work, In Search of the Miraculous, in which he attempted to set sail around the world in a tiny one-man schooner, […]

Luke Rathborne Reader Find

By Luke Rathborne in New Music on Tuesday 10 May 2011

Chris Bell’s I Am the Cosmos was assembled posthumously by friends and family members and is a stunning record. I encourage everyone to seek it out. Chris Bell is usually associated as the other musical brother-half of 70s cult band, Big Star (Alex Chilton being the former). But he left some very beautiful music of […]
