Marichka by Deradoorian ...produced by Animal Collective...♥


Not a complete fan of the  Dirty Projectors though...I'm just not always in the mood for it...but here she is : Angel Deradoorian, even her name makes you glow and dream away. This song from her last EP was co-produced by Avey Tare of Animal Collective. No need to say more, this song speaks for itself!

close your eyes now...

Mixtape for the after-weekend! Twin Shadow, Oh Land, Toro Y Moi,...


the party is over...you go home...the beats still thumping in your ears...you come home, but before you turn on the lights you try to ease your music-thrilled body by putting on this chill-out song, just to discover that there is still some adrenaline flowing through your veins ...and in a dazzling after-trip this music takes you further into the night/morning...just enough to put you in a musical mood of no return.

Get quiet with Good Morning by Moon, just enough to be jumpstarted back into action by the Presest Boys...a lot of remixed work by the likes of Twin Shadow, Lightwaves and Lovelife...and of course the occasional it-puts-a-smile-on-your-face-covers.

good morning - moon
i want you, stop cryin' - preset boys
end of days - gobble gobble
white nights (twin shadow) - oh land
still don't know - icona pop
am i dreaming (robopop remix) - neon hitch
girls just wanna have fun - pinup saints
the loveliest creature (lightwaves remix) - savoir adore
spanish teenager (acid washed remix)  - casey spooner
still sound (lovelife remix) - toro y moi
the point of no return - aeroplane

if you like the music, buy it from the artists!

ruben ireland, illustrator - my end of winter melancholy


London based, illustrator and mixed media artist, Ruben Ireland caught my eye via  iiiinspired. His paintings made in ink, acrylic and dirty water...on stained paper, old photographs and found things breathe a sepia-dark-ish atmosphere full of melancholy. Illustrations that touched me right away on this fairly cold February's Saturday. With bears, rabbit-girls and floating dream figurines...inhale his world!

DOORWAY - the new video by PLANNING to ROCK




Miss Planning to Rock is back with a new album "W" and here you can see the first video/song "Doorway"...a dark mesmerizing drone-beat that takes you in an obscure trance. Definitly a bit inspired by her good friend from The Knife when it comes to the voice-deforming.

But nevertheless (luv the word) it is creepy-cool in a way we luv it looong time!

ALEX WINSTON - preview for the Sister Wife EP



After a quite daring and successful but somewhat hidden EP full of great covers (from the likes of Jack Penate, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones,...you can download this "Basement Covers" EP for free here) Alex Winston, singer-song writer from Detroit -now moving to NY-, debuts here with her Sister Wife EP. 


Thanks to the first single/preview as this "Locomotive," her high and haunting voice gets you in the rhythm...and yes you'll feet will get to some taping when listening to this song...you'll have heard it all before but with a new twist and something completely intriguingly addictive ...Even with the deranged video!

Enjoy!

You can pre-order the EP here!


And one of my favorite covers she did on "the Basement Covers"



Killabite + Fear of Tigers >>>TRACASSEUR's Remix for the weekend!

MADAME PERIPETIE - purgatory of art - photography


Madame Peripetie flashed upon me on this windy Tuesday morning. In this era of exhuberant overdressing in the music scene...think Roisin Murphy (by Christophe Coppens), Lady Gaga (a local costume store), Fever Ray...Madame Peripetie brings it all together in her Purgatory Photo-collection.


Extravagant composition pronouncing strong emotions but without real faces. A sort of inner reflection brought to life in a blinded world...purgatory? The compositions really break through the ordinary and  go deeper but on the same time follow close the popular evolution that has started but where no one knows where it's gonna stop.


Madame Peripetie is a German born free-lance photographer with work in books and magazines like
