Hey NYC, what are you doing tomorrow evening? Head out to Sikkema Jenkins gallery for the opening of “The Cut,” a solo exhibition of Antony’s visual art (piece pictured above with more viewable here). The show is inspired by a poem of the same name and will be available for viewing until July 12, 2013. Sikkema Jenkins is located at 530 W. 22nd Street in Manhattan. See you there.
GOOD MORNING, SUNSHINE! Time to wake up and watch the new Nightlands video. The She-Policeman-directed work is for the new new new track “To The Moon.” It’s only appropriae that most of the footage is NASA lunar expeditions. Watch above. Nightlands are currently on tour; you’ll find all their dates below.
“The song is meant to evoke a feeling of isolation and loneliness, but also wonder and innocence – a remembrance of a time when the moon above was an invitation and a gateway to the stars.” – Dave Hartley
Happy hump day. Here’s a brand new session from Cayucas! They perform “East Coast Girl” live on the streets of Amsterdam. Satisfied? You shouldn’t be! Not until you’ve seen Cayucas live that is. They have a full summer of touring planned, including shows with JBM and Brazos; find all the dates HERE.
What happens when you pair Eric Wareheim with Major Lazer? We were all curious to know and then we found out. The new Wareheim-directed video for Major Lazer’s “Bubble Butt” (feat. Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Tyga & Mystic) cannot or maybe should not be described with words. Just watch the creative and potentially NSFW (depends on where you work ?!?!?) video above.
“Bubble Butt” is just one of the many b u m p i n’ tracks found on Major Lazer’s Free The Universe. If you’re late to the game and have yet to pick up record, do so now at iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution or your local record store.
Here’s something we can all look forward to. The 10th anniversary reissue of Damien Jurado’s Where Shall You Take Me is available next Tuesday. For those of you who are not familiar with this work, know that the album is Damien’s fifth full-length, originally released in 2003. The double lp includes previously unreleased basement reel demos and the Just In Time For Something EP (never before released on vinyl). You can stream “Omaha” today and check out the track listing below. Pre-order at SC Distribution.
This reissue is also dedicated to Damien’s late label-mate, Jason Molina. “If it were not for Jason Molina, I may not have ended up on the Secretly Canadian record label. The guy practically twisted one arm behind my back, and with the other, walked me through the front door of where I am today. I am eternally grateful for the guidance, knowledge, influence, and inspiration he so graciously shared with me. The reissue of this album is dedicated to his life and legacy.”
