Priestess – Prior To The Fire Album Review

The first thing that pops into my mind while listening to this Montreal four-piece’s sophomore effort is, “Who came first, the Priestess or The Sword?” And then I think about how The Priestess And The Sword sounds like a horrible ’80s fantasy movie replete with scantily clad bodybuilder types and busty wenches aplenty.

Adam Friedman Mixes Collage, Screen Printing, Acrylics & More Into Bizarre Landforms

With his most recent body of work, Adam Friedman combines traditional landforms with some truly interplanetary shit. His mixed media pieces initially come off a little like illustrations in a scientific textbook, but closer inspection reveals worlds where land is replaced by oceans and mountains by lava-like flows.

Royksopp – “This Must Be It” Music Video

Wrinkly old men and women in a primitive yet modern instrumental utopia? Loinclothes, bows and arrows, and BBQ meat central? Fever Ray / The Knife vocalist Karin Dreijer Andersson sings for Röyksopp’s new single, “This Must Be It,” and the video is a weird weird take on a community that’s a little bit hippie, a...Read...

With a style that embraces creatures as well as tribal influences and sophisticated patterns, Skinner is an artist who truly knows his style, yet never becomes boring.
