The internet exploded this am with the news that on Jan. 20, 2015 beloved punk trio Sleater-Kinney will be releasing a new album, entitled No Cities To Love via Sub Pop Records.
The intoxicatingly powerful band is made up of Carrie Brownstein (former BUST cover girl) on guitar and vocals, Corin Tucker also on guitar and vocals, and Janet Weiss on the drums. The band formed in 1994 in Olympia, WA, and put out seven albums before going on a hiatus in 2006.
If you have yet to hear them, or have forgotten what they are made of, I suggest you watch Jumpers, now. Read More

Miranda July is at it again. The director, artist, writer, and overall creative powerhouse just launched a new messaging service in collaboration with Miu Miu, and it's awesome—though anything involving both Miranda and Miuccia Prada is enough to turn my eyes into giant cartoon hearts.
The app, titled Somebody, was created to explore the chaotic opposite of the efficient and concise communication we enjoy today. As July told AnOther, Somebody is the contemporary reimagining of “singing telegrams and the way romantic messages used to be delivered by friends [back in] high school. Read More

In the past year, Buzzfeed, that pinnacle of workplace distractions, has become something of a crystal ball for those searching for a deeper understanding of his or her inner psyche. I swear sometimes it's like a tiny internet paw is reaching through my computer screen and telling me, "It's okay if your sense of direction is akin to a drunken toddler. Everything is going to be okay once I tell you whether or not you win at eating." Well, that is a bad example because, duh, I freaking RULE at eating. My ability to smash a sushi boat cannot be rivaled. Read More

Last night, November 17, was the release party for “It Chooses You” by Miranda July--as well as the grand opening of a pop-up shop based on the book. In the spirit of the book, the author and her team hunted through the NYC classifieds in search of once-meaningful objects for sale. Upon purchasing these artifacts--such as Japanese dolls, oil paints, an old paper cutter, and deer hooves--July interviewed the sellers. These items are being resold at the original asking price, plus tax, at July’s resale shop within gallery/studio Partners & Spade. Read More

N.Y.C.-based editor/designer Hamish Robertson is a busy man. You would think that being the online design editor of Vanity Fair would be time-consuming enough, right? Yet somehow Robertson finds time to create websites for well-known businesses (like vegan treatery, Babycakes), publish zines and prints as Brown Griffin (from his Brooklyn apartment), and curate Afterzine, a beautifully compiled arts and culture publication.
