The Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Products on Friday 10 October 2008

The Teddy Bear’s Picnic is a series of art works which place a sinister twist to popular fairytale characters. Within this world, Gretal discovers something more delicious than candy, Little Red Hiding Hood undergoes a ghastly transformation, and Repunzel uses her long, golden locks to commit atrocious acts. It is a world where button fetishes are contagious, childhood nursery rhymes are interwoven with macabre themes and happily ever after is anything but.

AU’s Verbs

Michaella Solar-March Reader Find

By Michaella Solar-March in New Music on Wednesday 8 October 2008

Verbs, the second album from Portland band AU (pronounced ‘ay you’), is surprising, and excitingly ahead of its time. Moving through 20-person chorus cries, subtle lullabies, whispered melodies, and screeching and scratched guitars, you never know where the journey will end. Psche-folk, freak-folk, electro-folk-noise, or whatever you want to call it, AU’s genre sprawling music paves the way for a wider breadth of experimentation in folk-inspired electronic production. We interviewed the group’s front man and founder, multi-instrumentalist Lyke Wyland.

Diplo remixes Santogold

Huna Amweero Reader Find

By Huna Amweero in New Trends on Thursday 21 August 2008

Diplo’s most recent venture — titled Top Ranking — takes Santogold’s glittery debut and smashes into a whole lotta dub. The superbly quirky musical conglomeration reworks Santogold’s weird pop sound with some fantastic dub tracks, with Diplo adding some 80s pop, 60s soul, punk and Top-40 gloss just for kicks. If dub is not your […]

Aeroplane are Ital-disco

Michaella Solar-March Reader Find

By Michaella Solar-March in New Music on Tuesday 19 August 2008

How many bands can you name who’ve formed over drunken conversations at parties? Add another to the list. Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano of Belgian duo Aeroplane met around six years ago at a party, and decided to work together after discovering a shared appreciation for 60s and 70s psychedelic pop, Fleetwood Mac, Brian Wilson and 80s synth pop pioneers Brian Eno and Giorgio Moroder. ‘At the beginning Vito made me listen to the demos which he made and I found it very interesting!’, Fasano says. ‘I wanted to do disco-rock-electro music with my influences, and after several working years, we both found our own sound’.

Transplant Community

Snell Reader Find

By Snell in New Trends on Wednesday 9 July 2008

A new idea has emerged in Norway that we think could be the precursor to things to come in the way our societies interact and develop. The general gradual demise of traditional gathering places such as town halls, community centers and churches has seemingly gone in hand with a generational shift and sharp increase in online virtual communities. However, humans still need to rub shoulders at some point to get things done, until, say, we perfect the sensitive hologram.

Flash Mobs equals frozen conformity

Marty Silk Reader Find

By Marty Silk in New Trends on Thursday 26 June 2008

In a world steered by trends, it’s easy for individuals to be consumed by the norm. But there are few creative groups pioneering a new style of non-conformist mobilization. They are known as a ‘flash mobbers’. A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public space, perform an unusual action (usually freezing in motion) for a brief time, and then quickly disperse.

How old must Kermit be now? Not to old to collaborate with skater-friendly retailer Supreme and photographer Terry Richardson.
