Monday Monday, is it possible to take the Nolan Porter option and just keep on keeping on? Is it possible to just carry on painting or to head out to an art gallery or to watch a film or to get excited about the Flying Luttenbachers being in town this week? Is it possible to just turn off the news and turn up the music? Is it possible to just smile at your old school mates who voted Tory and then try to tell you they see the same injustice as you? Is it possible to just carry on opening the hundreds of e.mails from records labels and PR people? From art galleries, is it possible to paint in the same way you were painting last week? Here’s a couple of things that caught am ear….
“Hello Deathbomb Friends, we know what you like. You like Dos Monos. So why not watch a brand new music video from them?” Said someone from the aforementioned Deathbomb. Mr or Ms Deathbomb is right of course, we do like Dos Monos, they’ve been featured on these fractured pages before, Dos Monos are a Japanese/Korean hip hop trio hailing from Tokyo
Meanwhile something rather beautiful that we’ve had hanging around via an open window for a few days – “Leya, Marilu Donovan (Eartheater, Aerial East, Julie Byrne) and Adam Markiewicz (PC Worship, The Dreebs), have a new track “Weight” from the duo’s forthcoming album Flood Dream, an album that’s to be released in March of next year via NNA Tapes. “The lead single and album opener, which features experimental pop vocalist/composer Gabi, hints at the expanded sound of Flood Dream which was written during an extensive touring over four months in the US, Canada & Europe. Flood Dream includes a few tracks from their feature-length score of Brooke Candy’s queer pornagraphic film “I Love You” and follows their debut album, The Fool. With Flood Dream, Leya subvert the academic and classical connotations of their instruments, instead reframing them in a DIY punk ethos and favouring intuition over pedagogy to inform their creative process”.
Those Flying Luttenbachers, in town this Thursday…
Keep on keeping on? You can but try…
More of this tomorrow, maybe….
