Air’s special brand of electro-cool heats things up in the sexy, spacey Love 2.
Alison Sudol lets her hair down for Bomb in a Birdcage, the singer-songwriter’s rock-infused piano pop follow-up to A Fine Frenzy's acclaimed first album.
I was wandering around the Serious Eats website, a food blog about chow in the NYC area, and spotted this odd baked good. In Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, you can find a recipe for Frida Kahlo's Pan de Muerta, which is a traditional Day of the Dead treat made to honor those that have passed on. Oh Ms. Kahlo, I don't know if this is what you were going for with your recipe but know that I find it somewhat cute and smile-worthy.
While being a sicky-poo this weekend I caught up on YouTube videos and boy, I found a unique diddy. Jack's (wouldn't it be nice to be on a first name basis with him? I think so) most recent project, The Dead Weather, just put out a new video for the single I Cut Like A Buffalo a couple of weeks back and I can't believe I am this late in seeing it! Jack looking as fine as ever in a video he himself directed?! I'll take it! And another thing, if you're familiar with Twin Peaks, let me know if you get a 'Special Agent Dale Cooper's dream involving the red room and the little guy dancing' vibe...
The first graphic novel I ever bought was Death: The High Cost of Living. I was a teenage gothette just figuring out that there were all sorts of strange and wonderful things out there that I hadn't discovered yet, and then one day my friend came to school with a little thing called the Death Gallery, full of these gorgeous pictures of this little goth girl that sorta even looked like me (if you squinted and washed out the color). What the heck was that? I'd seen plenty of comics but nothing that looked like that.
I know, I know, it's Twilight, and Bella Swan is probably the most anti-feminist character in the history of 'literature,' but this soundtrack is GOOD! The last one was laughably terrible and full of your standard Hot Topic fare: Paramore, Linkin Park, and a mid-90s-esque ballad from R-Patz himself. But this one's got original tunes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Lykke Li, and Bon Iver and St. Vincent. I know, right? My personal favorite is 'Slow Life' by Grizzly Bear featuring Victoria Legrand of Beach House.
Here at Bust, we love Ruffeo Hearts Lil Snotty . They specialize in super quality, handmade apparel, made by the designers R. Mackswell Sherman, and Sarah Jones in Redhook, Brooklyn. Their rompers and mixed-pattern dresses are amazing- Sure to stop traffic. Even Martha Stewart likes Ruffeo Hoodies. More over, RHLS will be hosting a phad-shun show in Brooklyn Monday, October 19th, at Death by Audio. RHLS will be revealing their winter line while you shake to music by acts such as MNDR and Nameless .
Sufjan Stevens played his second show at the Bowery Ballroom on October 5th as part of a small tour he is performing to workshop some new songs. Opening band Cryptacize got the sold-out show warmed up with pretty song stylings and herky jerky dance moves provided by lead singer Nedelle Torrisi. Nedelle also took the stage for background vocal duties during the entirety of Sufjan's set. The start of the evening was a bit rough due to a confusing mush of lines waiting outside to get in, and two flooded bathrooms ('you can go, but just don't flush,' the security guard warned).
This just in -- a new 'younger' version of Thelma and Louise is in the works and is set to star Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Amber Heard (Pineapple Express). Leighton, we love you as Blair Waldorf, but can you really handle a classic like T and L? It's like asking us to believe Serena van der Woodsen can do Shakespeare -- it just ain't gonna happen. Plus the title is Cowgirl Bandits. Who gave this the green light? And how come I don't have their job? So what do you think, ladies? Is it a travesty, or is it awesome? I think you know where I stand. photo courtesy EW.
Clare And The Reasons are listed as being Chinese Traditional music on their MySpace profile, but they are not Chinese nor Traditional. What they are is a Brooklyn based band fronted by Clare Manchon who is releasing its second album, Arrow, on October 20th. The first initial notes off of Arrow are sweet in such a way as to fool listeners into settling in for what they think may be a placid ride into musical dreamland. That doesn't last for long. Five minutes into the album and it's clear that the songs contain a wealth of depth underneath that candy-coated shell.
