Diplo Gets His Vogue On
Diplo Gets His Vogue On
Beyoncé - 4
We swear this isn't an ironic listening. We love Beyoncé and 4. OK, we might unironically skip straight to track 5, 'Party', produced by Kanye West and with rap by Andre3000, because we ain't no stay-home-mums that need all those ballads about being broken hearted and finding the right person. But, after that, the album turns into a beautiful compilation of classic r'n'b, soul and a bit of sweat-inducing booty tracks - not too many though - that sound surprisingly courageous considering the actual state of pop music. And for that, we bow down and hail Queen B. P.S. Get the deluxe version, for those extra couple of amazing tracks.
Bassike
The name of this label has been interpreted in many ways; from 'bass-seekey' to 'base-ike', but the correct way describes exactly what this label is about: BASIC. Bassike delivers easily breezily cut staples with an interesting little twist that keeps them from being your run of the mill. For those that live in climates like that of Australia (where Bassike hails from) or Brazil, you'll know how easy it is to make fashion faux pas when the weather gets hot and the prospect of wearing anything but a bathing suit becomes slightly unappealing; Bassike is all and everything you need.
Game of Thrones
Before watching HBO's Game of Thrones, I assumed the series would tend a bit more towards the blood-dripping Danish movie Valhalla Rising rather than fairy-tale stories a lá 'Lord of the Rings'; and for that I didn't really like the series at the beginning. But slowly, I found myself submitting to tales of bad kings, midget juggernauts, savage warriors and... dragons. And that happened probably because there aren't exactly good guys and bad guys here, like there are in Tolkien stories - and that is, of course, a simplification of his work. Another reason I relented to this series is because of the intriguing political backstage element that leads to the ever-happening dance of thrones. Oh, and did I mention the gratuitous nekkid-ness?
The Norfolk // Sydney, Australia
Of the slew of new spots having opened up in Sydney in the last six months, The Norfolk on Cleveland St in Surry Hills has been one fated with success. Owned by some of the same kids that have brought The Flinders back to life (and currently, it's incredibly quick onset of 'The Norms'), you'll undoubtedly find The Norfolk rammed with all kinds, vying for a bite, a beer and a spot in the garden out back. The aim of the game is to cultivate Aussie pub culture at it's best; and it's doing a pretty decent job so far - if only you could get a table!
Super Sad True Love Story
Super Sad True Love Story is the third book from the writer of the best selling Absurdistan, Gary Shteyngart. Incidentally, I read him name dropped in Flavorpill's Ultimate Hipster Reading list and in the same sentence as James Franco (they're buds, apaprently) just before I finished his latest offering. Don't let any of that put you off, or take away any of the sad scary brilliance of Super Sad True Love Story; written from the perspective of one 39 year old Lenny Abramov, son of Russian immigrants and in love with the impossibly cute and cruel Eunice Park. A satire that cuts to the bone, Super Sad True Love Story is exactly it's title. And it's good.

Syndromes

im-ur-sydnromes_golden_filter

 

So The Golden Filter have been making a short film, and soundtracking it with their music...that's what they were teasing about a couple of weeks ago! The short film is in collaboration with Scandinavian director Kristoffer Borgli and is about a girl with some X-Men/Misfits (MISS YOU MISFITS! HURRY BACK!) kinda steez and how she gets caught up in the bloated, gold lined underbelly of the rich, according to the PR. Judging with my own eyes, it seems beautifully and thoughtfully filmed as well as excellently soundtracked by Stephen and Penelope to boot.

 

'Mother' is the tune that accompanies the trailer below, and has the sonic trademark of a ponderous, TGF beat. To my delight, there are some new elements in there that I really enjoyed; the Yeasayer-esque synths, with the hissing high hat in what sounds like real drums and off beat accents that lift the track from simply fashionable to something spookier and infinitely more interesting. This is an exciting and dynamic addition to The Golden Filter's soundscape with which to put Penelope's ethereal vocals.

 

Sydnromes is due out on the 10th of October. Be on the look out, I expect it to be pretty good.

Necking Kanye and Condo

Yo // Young Ye

 

Oh Kanye, Kanye, Kanye. He's been a little quiet for a while, no? Mr West, we miss your 'Ye-isms, where you been? One thing's for sure, his scarf collabo with M/M Paris' Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag is due to be released on Monday over at MMParis.com and Colette.

 

mm_kwscarves_all

 

Now, there's been rumblings over these scarves for some time, and I really do think they're beautiful (and I would really really love one - ANY one! I find them all wickkkked). But fat chance of that methinks, since only 100 of these French-made silk twill scarves were done in each of the five designs, which were based on the George Condo paintings commissioned for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Its 250 euro a pop to have a piece of Kanye/Condo around your pretty little neck. Which one is your fave?
