FKA twigs – Cellophane

FKA twigs is back with a new breathtaking track called Cellophane, accompanied by a clip directed by Andrew Thomas Huang (Björk’s collaborator) in which twigs shows everything she has learned in the art of pole dancing, moving sinuously in front of her monsters.
She climbs on that pole like an ivy while we hang on to that thread of her voice, so delicate and vulnerable that it seems to be about to break and instead is as thin and resistant as a cellophane film and keeps us for the whole song wrapped into a dense cloud of synths, strings and wonder.

Cuco – Hydrocodone

Hydrocodone is a music video dedicated to the memory of our past and future selves. It’s an abstract journey through a young man’s memories before and after a big accident“.

Hey Cuco, you’ll be fine.

Kevin Abstract – Peach

Kevin Abstract is on fire. After he released two EPs and two videos in two weeks, he also drops a new clip for the track Peach that features contributions from two other Brockhampton members, Bearface and Joba, both of them singing in falsetto and enjoying life in LA with Kevin.

Loyle Carner – Angel ft. Tom Misch

Loyle Carner and Tom Misch are together on a Portuguese adventure, eating pasta and cycling like Elio and Oliver in Call Me By Your Name. Definitely the best match in music.

Divino Niño – Maria

The Chicago’s band dropped a dreamy single Maria ahead of its upcoming record Foam, due out June 21. The clip is inspired by the Mexican telenovelas and we just can’t stop watching.

Jackie Cohen – Chico Chico

Dancing in a supermarket parking lot has never been so fun.

SIRUP – Pool

I still don’t know very well who, how and why but he is SIRUP and his first album Feel Good is out on May 29th. Now don’t ask yourself too many questions and push play above.

Goldwash – You Don’t Wanna Feed the Fire Anymore

Dedicated to all fans of dreamy melodies, lo-fi sounds and Mac DeMarco. He is Goldwash and will soon be a star.

IAMDDB – Urban Jazz

From the hotel, to the soundcheck, to the backstage, to the live. In this video put up in 24 hours you can follow IAMDDB in every move before a concert, through a series of scenes mainly in black and white with which the artist declares she wants to express “the vulnerability it takes to make timeless music“.

Mark Ronson – Late Night Feelings ft. Lykke Li

Did anyone say Friday?

Casa Plenaire, the perfect refuge signed Child Studio

Casa Plenaire, the perfect refuge signed Child Studio

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art, Design

In the last few months, we’ve seen holiday plans go up in smoke and canceled trips, and the idea that we still have a long way to go before we return to travel saddens us. Many studios and designers have been looking for innovative solutions to make us travel with our minds, like the Overthought project, but some have gone further and imagined the perfect place to spend the quarantine, like Casa Plenaire. The designers of Child Studio, in collaboration with the skincare brand Plenaire, which gives its name to the project, have created a series of renderings with 3D modeling programs giving shape to their idea of the ideal place to live the lockdown.  

It is a sea view house that, in its soft and not angular shapes and light colors, recalls the typical houses of Santorini. In the center of the house there is a round bathtub, on either side of which two short stairs lead to the bedroom with a window overlooking the sea and an opening leading to the terrace with the floor covered in polished tiles.  

On the opposite side of the Casa Plenaire, there is, instead, a sort of inner courtyard with an outdoor shower and characterized by bright orange walls. Like any self-respecting summer house, in every room are scattered beach accessories such as straw hats, beach towels, open books, shells, magazines. 

Moreover, through the few furnishing elements present, the designers of Child Studio wanted to pay homage to some iconic pieces such as the Anywhere Lamp by Greta von Nessen and the Pastil chair by Finnish designer Eero Aarnio.

Shishido Mazafaka’s fascinating and creepy accessories

Shishido Mazafaka’s fascinating and creepy accessories

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

Shishido Mazafaka, aka Doooo, is a Japanese DJ who, when not busy writing and recording new songs, devotes his free time to a strange and unusual hobby. In fact, Shishido loves making accessories of all kinds, from small handbags to phone covers, from stamps to chargers for the computer. So far, nothing strange, the silliest thing is that each of these objects is made by simulating human skin, with hair and skin flaws, making the end result both fascinating and gruesome at the same time

This strange effect, which cannot fail to remind us of Qimmy Shimmy’s small sculptures, is made of silicone rubber and meticulously worked to perfectly replicate parts of the body such as ears, mouths, fingers or navels. The working of a single piece takes from one to three months, but not all the work is done by Shishido Mazafaka himself. Without revealing the secrets that allow such a realistic result to be achieved, the artist stated that to achieve it, he gets help from his partner Jurjen Hasseling, founder of the JUR production studio, who divides the design and modeling phases. 

Among the friends and fans of Shishido Mazafaka, these accessories are in great demand, so all creations can be purchased and range from prices ranging from 120,000 Yen to 390,000 Yen, which is between 1,000 and 3,000 or so. 

Would you ever go out with one finger and one eye hanging around your neck?

Discovering Buckingham Palace with HomeAdvisor

Discovering Buckingham Palace with HomeAdvisor

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Art

Who has never wanted to know what is hidden inside some of the most famous buildings in the world? The British company HomeAdvisor wanted to give us a gift, commissioning a team of designers and experts to create posters with the interiors of Buckingham Palace

Excluding the summer period, during which few rooms are open to tourists, the 775 rooms of the English crown house still remain a mystery. After several studies and drawing information from various sources, the team chosen by HomeAdvisor has created seven posters, some illustrating the plan of the palace and others illustrating some rooms. 

Specifically, we find the plan of the Central Block, the first part that can be seen entering Buckingham Palace, with the famous staircase of honor covered by a luxurious red carpet and the walls covered by portraits of the members of the Royal Family. In this wing, you will find some of the most famous rooms, such as the State Dining Room, where a long mahogany table that is said to be polished so many times that it does not need a tablecloth. It was in this room that Kate and William held their wedding reception in 2011. 

It continues with the so-called White Drawing Room, where meetings with a few people take place and where the public can enter, as opposed to the Room 1844, destined for meetings with the most illustrious visitors, from presidents to celebrities. 

Next to the latter is the Regency Room, which is the room usually seen on television during the Queen’s speeches. 

This is followed by the floor plan of the Queen’s Apartments. It is said that of the 775 rooms of Buckingham Palace, Her Majesty uses only six daily, to which access is allowed only to a few intimates, including the room to receive the Prime Minister. 

Finally, the last floor plan is dedicated to the East Front characterized by a style that draws on the Chinese one, merging it with many furnishings taken from a former royal residence in Brighton, the Royal Pavillon. 

Get lost in the corridors of Buckingham Palace!
