As easy as 1, 2, 3, here’s an animated tutorial so you, too, can write a ‘filthy dubstep banger.’ Silly little student trying to crawl away at the end…you can’t escape the Mohawk Dubstep Squirrel that easily!
The new single from Tanlines has been kicking around my brain-space for the past week — enjoy it, and the very satisfying accompanying video directed by Julian Baratt of The Mighty Boosh fame. Dripping with Lynchian flavor, it’s the perfect dark foil for the song’s warm pep.
The 60 Seconds Left video features on Pitchfork are sometimes silly, sometimes slow, sometimes intimate moments with musicians. This most recent, with Dirty Beaches’ Alex Zhang Hungtai (he of the slick pompadour and Roy Orbison-cool tunes) gives a glimpse of a young entertainer who likes to laugh and knows his […]
After being introduced to a wider audience through the popular Drive soundtrack, Chromatics have been prepping a new release, and now it’s here — a huge, 17-song album that’s available now through iTunes, with a double-vinyl release supposedly on the way. Above is a video for one of the tracks […]
We’re happy to see MakerBot making new fans! The L Magazine shares a video of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer taking a tour of the MakerBot factory in Brooklyn and explaining his excitement over the prospect of small-scale, high-tech local businesses pumping new life into the neighborhood. “(We’ve gotta start) […]
By all accounts, Claire Boucher, with her musical project Grimes, seems to be shaping up into this year’s most-adored new punk chanteuse — punk in spirit, certainly, if not purely in her music, which shoves bouncy 80s synth-pop and Cyndi Lauper-ish melodies through some dark, industrial corridors to create something […]
As the kind of person (old? crotchety?) for whom the idea of a concert where everyone is sitting/laying down nearly comatose usually sounds far more appealing than the typical standing-room-only setup, this Kid Koala headphone tour had me at ‘hello.’ Coming to Fort Greene on April 3rd and 4th, it’s […]
Speaking of Björk, here’s her video for “Hollow” off of Biophilia, which employed the aforementioned gravity harp. The song is pretty haunting and weird — Björky, if you will — and the video, a collaboration with a biomedical animator, goes along with that just dandy. Watch the DNA strands float […]
In terms of bizarre, laborious projects involving needlessly complicated simple tasks, this ranks right up there — but, still, you’ve got to respect the nerdy artistry at work here (or just kind of gape at it, like, ‘Weird,’ but, hey, we all love gadgets, right?). Plus, it’s Björk. Speaking of […]
Here’s another iPhone case for the camera enthusiast. The iCA iPhone case transforms your phone into a camera with perfectly charming retro appeal. Not only an aesthetic upgrade but a tactile one as well, you can embrace the entire experience with a working shutter button! It comes also with a […]
Good things come in small packages — and we’ve got a little gem here that does triple duty! This little-speaker-that-could not only functions as a rich-sounding mini-speaker compatible with a range of sound sources, it also acts as a radio and an on-the-go phone charger. That’s right; if your phone […]
