Thanks to the recently released remastered demo-collection RESSURECTION, the original version of this song - once long ago featured on Virgo Four's 4-track tapes somewhere between 1984-1990 - brought with it some housy remixes like this on by the great Caribou.
Swedish mellow-tronica band Museum of Bellas Artes makes you dose off into a psychedelic fairytale full of goldilocks and horses. The vintage imagery they use gives it an almost 3D effect...a bit like the nightclub colors of their video for Watch the Glow! Released by Force-Majeure
the mysterious producer Ifan Dafydd is haunting everyone with him maybe being the new alter ego of James Blake. Nevertheless enjoy this trippy-jazzy-winehouse-gem that will slip and slide into your ears as some warm brandy onto your tongue...
Chailift, the band of Caroline Polachek -known from their amazing BRUISES -song I ♡ so much- is back with an almost unpronounceable song called Amanaimonesia, with brings us a rich sound and a wicked rhythm. Good to hear from them again!
Also check out the walk-through video for their upcoming album!
The Coasters didn't even scored a hit when this song came out in the 50s, but got quite big after Young Blood. And of course, thanks to Taratino's Death Proof, you must have heard this song during Rose McGowan's breathtaking but in the end fatal saloon lap-dance.
Now fashion-bff Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini bring this tune to the next level with their remix. Besides music these girls are everywhere to found in design+art+fashion+collaborations!
Mr. Deer just got back from another great fashion/trademission to the ever spectacular BREAD & BUTTER SUPER trade SHOW in Berlin. 3 days of wondering around and discovering new brands and the latest styles for next season(s).
And in between the big shots like Adidas, Diesel, Levi's it's always great to discover smaller emerging brands in clothing and accessories. This year in January my eye already fell on the Swedish jewelery brand MINT. And this year, thanks to a nice visit from one of Mint's enthusiastic collaborators I got even deeper into the brand.
From the tree, where the charms, necklaces, bracelets,... are displayed in, to the playful and Scandinavian-nature-goes-creatively-cool graphics on the packaging the Mint-brand gets your attention immediately and makes you smile.
Tiny golden hearts and love-trinkets create a vintage atmosphere that make you think back of some of your childhood 's greatest memories... like falling in love for the first time! Thanks to these little cherish-able objects you can now take these thoughts everywhere with you.
And what I like so much about Scandinavian design is that, besides love, nature and animals are also always present. The same here, you can find an octopus, some elephants and of course -my favourite- a Mr. Deer!!!
Check out their colorful mintsweden.se website, an experience that reads as a mood-board full of drawings and pictures that reflect the soul of the brand : creating charming objects that help you create your own unique style and image. Through fun and happiness, bright colors and materials, to be found in every design of the collection, your creativity and imagination will emerge and take you on a fantastic voyage full of wondering owls, smiling cats and rainbow-colord rain drops.
You can shop for this happiness at their online shop or go and try them out in a wide range of stand-out shops around Europe! Check it out and follow their latest new on the new Mint blog!
and p.s.: I luv their packaging ; )
Hoofs up from Mr. Deer!
