You could describe the music of Sevendeaths as something very visceral. His sound seems to punch right through you, shaking out your ears in order to reveal itself to you. His latest release Concreté Misery is gripping, dark thirty minutes. It is a combination of cold stone techno with foggy white ambience: it’s an intriguing combination and a thrilling listen. The EP’s opener “Petrograde” serves as the best taste of Sevendeaths and truly is a modern masterpiece. It has a sublimeness to it yet feels absolutely based in the earth: it feels like a vision from the past of the future.
Will Holmes is an English born designer and illustrator based in Brooklyn who’s creating some rather fancy lettering. He recently updated his portfolio and I have to say that the Letter Dump section is quite amazing. He’s displayed a wonderfully wide range of styles with every letter illustrated in a different manner. You can also see a few of his lettering pieces below.
Portuguese artist Hugo Barros has a gift when it comes to the art of collage. His hand-crafted works create fantastic compositions that are filled with cosmic imagery and surreal sights. He shows skyscrapers that burst from desert dunes and waterfalls that cut away to reveal giant volcanic clouds below. A trip through his portfolio is a journey into a strange and magical place and it’s a journey that comes highly recommended.
Since the release of The Grand Budapest Hotel there’s been a streak of interesting stories around Wes Anderson and the way he creates his films. The first interesting site was the color palettes of Wes Anderson, a Tumblr that takes key scenes from his films and defines a perfect palette inspired by it. As you can see above the results are quite fantastic.
A few weeks ago, The Cut named a few photographers to watch. They ran the spectrum of what fashion photography is now and the one who stood out to me was obviously the weirdest of the bunch, Charlie Engman. His image featured an older woman staring at the camera, caught somewhere between fashionable folly and curmudgeonly crankiness. It’s charming and ugly and beautiful, something easy to fall in love with. The image—Above.—is from a series Engmand did called MOM that he did a few years ago for The Room. It’s an incredible series that shows that fashion and style are not tied to age.
