Here’s a first look at the new single art I designed for the Lana Del Rey x Wealstarr “West Coast” remix.  The new remix drops soon, so be watching/listening for it!  It’s got this spacey, helium-infused vibe that is reaaaaaaally cool.

ARTWORK WEDNESDAY: Music Video Masterpieces

Check out this incredible music video from Mister D & Anja Rubik’s new single “Chleb”.  I have to say it rivals my favorite music video ever made - “Push It” by Garbage, which you can see below.

The video at first may seem really silly, but it is so impressively multi-layered, and by the end it has virtually created it’s own world… a real homage to web art.  Andddddd, how can you not love all that crazy bread witchery!

What is your favorite music video of all time?

THERE WAS A PⒶRTY…

So I had a party a few weeks ago, and my friends can get as messy and wild as me.  Looking around the next morning, I knew this havoc had to be documented in the best way possible.  No sensible explanations need apply…

The most valuable advice I can give to a blogger is - don’t try to be like anyone else. You enjoy writing a blog the most when you aren’t always having to look over your shoulder, trying to compete with other bloggers. Be YOU and your readers will be people who like you and your blog for what they are. There really is no point in wanting to cater to a huge audience if none of them are really that invested in your words or work. Authenticity is important and always assume that your audience is actually smarter than you might think they are. People can tell when you are being basic or fake.

5 Questions With… HER

image

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

It’ll have to be 5… “It is what it is.”

Where are you based out of?

NYC

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced at one of your live shows?

The CRAZiest thing I have ever experienced at my show actually happened right after the show.  A fan came over to me and asked me the same question, before I could even answer he had a tattoo gun in his hand and said, “I want YOU to do this.”  He wanted me to give him a tattoo… After a couple of whiskey shots, I put some rubber gloves on and began my art piece.  I tattooed the band logo right on his wrist!!  He forever had been inked by a 3AM, whiskey infused, “do-I-need-to-dip-the-gun-in-the-ink,” virgin tattoo artist!

If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?

Elvis, The Rolling Stones, and the Beastie Boys.

Any big projects in the works this year?

We have a new music video coming out this summer, and will be touring in Europe in the Summer and Fall.  We just got back from touring Europe in February.  Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, and Austria showed us such hospitality, and the crowds were full of energy.  Real music lovers!

MUSIC MONDAY: Lana Del Rey Album Leaks

A while back, rough cuts of what seems to be at least half of Lana Del Rey’s upcoming album, Ultra-Violence, was leaked on the interwebs, so I thought I’d compile them all together for a closer listen.  I have to say… If this is it, I’m a little disappointed.  I do like “Hollywood” and “Starry Eyed”, but I’m pretty indifferent to the others.  I guess I was hoping for something a little spunkier and darker, as she hails it to be.

We’ll just have to wait and see what makes the final cut in May!

* UPDATE!!!!! *

Lana just posted the final master of her lead single for Ultra-Violence, “West Coast”, on her YouTube.  Maaaaaad Tori Amos vibes…

CINEMA SUNDAY: Grey Gardens II

I absolutely love the Grey Gardens movie HBO made in 2005 inspired by the original documentary.  Jessica Lange does such an incredible job at capturing every nuance of Big Edie’s boisterous personality.  Drew Barrymore also did a wonderful job, as well.  I recently rewatched my copy of the film and enjoyed it even more than the 1st time I saw it.  If you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, I highly recommend you pick it up or rent it.  A definite must see!
