Jamel Shabazz: Street Photographer

Charlie Ahearn’s Film Retraces a Moment in New York Style - Video 1 / / 3

As a teenage photographer in early 80s East Flatbush, Brooklyn, Jamel Shabazz set out to document the then nascent movement of hip-hop. Through the iconic style of his MCs, neighborhood kids and gang members, the unequivocal attitude of New York’s youth was recognized as the calling card of the city’s creative renaissance. Published in 2001, Shabazz’ first book Back In The Days was celebrated as an exhilarating snapshot of the times, and his visual flair has been brought to life in a new documentary by the legendary hip-hop historian and director, Charlie Ahearn.  “On the cover of Jamel’s book were two young men on 42nd Street. They were captured posing in such strong form as a kind of respectful bulwark against all the chaos that you see around them on ‘The Deuce,’” explains Ahearn, the notable filmmaker also responsible for the classic old-school movie, Wild Style. “I immediately knew that here was an original artist for our time.” [1]

"Water Fountain" by tUnE-yArDs // Nikki Nakk (Out 5.5.14 via 4AD)

If you’re in need of a little blast of energy to rile up your weekday morning, look no further than the deliriously infectious new track from tUnE-yArDs, “Water Fountain”. The track is the first single from the forthcoming album Nikki Nakk, and it is now streaming above in the animated-still announcement video. Fans of the band will be pleased that Merrill Garbus hasn’t lost her touch for buoyant, dance-able rhythms and crafty wordplay. “Water Fountain” is a killer jam, and an exciting look at what awaits on the new album. The band also recently announced tour dates opening for Arcade Fire, which you can check out HERE..

THE FADED NIGHTS // A Lullaby Mixtape

The Faded Nights is a mixtape from a year or so back. It was errantly deleted soon thereafter. I recently found it again in a folder, and thought that it might be a nice throwback mix to share again. It’s aesthetic is one primarily of melancholic, atmospheric, ambient sounds. Music for the later hours. Not music that will make you fall asleep, but rather music that might sing you to sleep if you let it. Think of it as a longplay lullaby. All of the tracks are older, but some might be deeper cuts that you’re not familiar with - whatever the case, it’s pretty music for late hours. Enjoy.

Blessa - Between Times

#DarkSide #3

perfectmidnightworld:

Blessa are one of those bands that manage to evoke all of the good memories of a particular era’s sound. Calling to mind the shimmering sounds of The Cure's late 80's output, the lovely melodic pop hooks of The Sundays, and dreamier shoegaze moments from Pale Saints. It all makes for a nostalgic listen, but also an entirely fresh and exciting sound. “Between Times” manages to hit those aforementioned sounds while offering a warm, autumnal haze that makes you wish that it was the orange and red colors of fall painting the ground as opposed to blankets of white. Heads up to themustycodpiece for reminding me that Blessa was out there. It’s easy sometimes to hear something great, only to get sidetracked and forget for a month or two. Highest recommendation!

"Clotheslined" by Special Explosion // The Art of Mothering (Out 2.18.14 via Topshelf Records)

Well, this is just the kind of thing that I’ve been craving. The Seattle based four-piece, Special Explosion, have that perfect grasp of old school indie rock inspiration mixed with genuine talent for crafting new and original sounds. Pitchfork went ape-shit pointing out the band’s similarity to Built to Spill, and sure - that can be heard in the guitar work for sure, but there’s more at work here than Doug Martsch hero-worship. Picking listeners might also point out a light similarity to the earlier work of Death Cab for Cutie and the melodic turns of phrase that made Ben Gibbard a star. But again, faint similarities can be dragged onto any band, what counts is the songcraft, and “Clotheslined” is a blast of laid-back, indie guitar rock that lives inside a world of catchy hooks and killer boy/girl vocal harmonies. It’s the kind of track that will have you digging out old favorites from the late 90’s and early 00’s while marking your calendar for the release of more from the band at hand. I will certainly be on the lookout for any and everything that Special Explosion has on the horizon.
