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.

MTV CK ONE Brazil // ft Sky Ferreira

img_5577


There was plenty going on in São Paulo last Tuesday night, amongst which was MTV's CK One Party, featuring none other than CK One poster girl, Sky Ferreira. Open bar aside, I was curious to see Sky in real life. Because even with her fame/notoriety and papp-ability, her music career never really quite happened. Considering her myspace/Michael Jackson hype, her epic record deal signing and the truckloads of money that was thrown at her (and subsequently, squandered by her), the fruits of her talent have yet to appear. Unless you call an oversexualised, over-hyped and eventual flop of a video that looks more like a make-up advertorial, a fruit.

 

One by Sky Ferreira

 

Not that a million plus views are anything to be sniffed at; but when at least that much was spent making an album that was never released, the value of it has to be questioned. And not saying either, that Sky isn't a hard worker (I have no idea whether she is or not), or that any of it is her fault.

 

I'm Just Saying.

 

Anyway, so the music didn't quite happen for Sky; but fashion on the other hand, has always loved her. And girl sure can work a camera angle, as is evidenced with her burgeoning career as a model allowing her to showcase her music somewhat. But in spite of all that: Sky Ferreira can actually sing. And I was curious to see her in the flesh.

 

With MTV's gorgeous Gaía Passarelli and DJ duo Database on the decks, as well as Brazil's own Copacabana Club in support, Sky came onstage superbly late. She looked more than a little dead-eyed, though with freshly straightened and possibly touched up roots. She did a few unmemorable songs with an acoustic guitar played by her boyfriend (so I was told) before singing to a backing track a number of songs including the very CK appropriate, 'One'. But she could definitely carry a tune. And work a diva hand. What more does a pretty girl need?

Here are some pics of the sets, first up with Copacabana Club, then Sky:
