Flatsound

April 19th, 2011

His name is Mitchell Welling AKA Flatsound

He is a musician, a writer.

He wishes he was a friend, a cat, asleep

Support the artist and buy his gorgeous album i clung to you hoping we’d both drown’

The cowardly lion doesn’t write love songs


I saw the sea

March 11th, 2011

I guess ‘I saw the sea’ is about the sensation one might feel while sitting on the beach using all senses, watching, smelling and listening to the ocean, in stereo, and trying to grasp this enormous wonder. ‘Stargazer’ and the rest of this gorgeous album draws inspiration from this divine occasion, and Mutual benefit turned this to an audible delight.

Yellow bird project

January 27th, 2011

I am all cited to tell you about this wonderful nonprofit organization I have discovered,  based in Montreal founded by 2 uni grads, Casey and Matt. Its called The Yellow bird project, and they work with an amzing roster of indie artists ( Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Beach house, Devendra Banhart, Grizzly Bear, Joseph Arthur, to name but a few), to create unique T shirts designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the artists.

Read what they say about themselves: ..”You can think of us as a tree of creativity, with branches joining together indie musicians, charitable organizations, and t-shirts with a fashionable punch. We’re a non-profit Montreal based organization dedicated to bringing our customers the finest of quality, originality, and philanthropy. We seek out only the coolest of cool artists, collaborate with them to design awesomely awesome tee-shirts, and give all the prettiest of pretty profits to charities of the artists’ choice.”

The mission:

1. To raise money for charities directly through the barter and trade of our fab tee-shirts. Unfortunately we no longer accept goats; money proved to be an easier currency to store.

2. To raise awareness for charity organizations and their aims through artists’ endorsement. YBP is a very different venue for these charities. It brings in a lot of younger people and encourages philanthropy from treble and bass clefts. It is definitely more work to have multiple charities, rather than one fund, but we think it allows the artists to pick something that is truly important to them. 

3. To raise the profile of artists we like. We by no means want to or presume to have the ability to make artists into marketed machines and different versions of Ms. Spears, but we want to help raise their profiles and get them the attention that they deserve. We hope YBP can in some way help artists and music to prosper, and in turn help those less fortunate.

Listen to their Theme song written and performed by The tallest man on earth:

Oh holly night

December 19th, 2010

It seems like it all comes down to this night, something special about it, there is something in the air, and ‘Oh holly night’ ( Banjo or freakout song) is definitely a left turn from Generationals last song. It`s so funny, listening to Banjo or freakout`s album with my headphones on, while they play this horrible birthday song for this table of guests at my local coffee shop…there is this sickening ritual, a happy waitress coming out of the kitchen with a cheesy looking birthday cake with a lit candle, and they start playing this real horrible song, it happens around twice a day, thank god I am armed with my AKG headphones, and even better, with Banjo or freakout`s excellent album that I downloaded awhile back, its just that this band name turned me off for some reason.. and again, a post with an added value, our graphics. I have asked a regular customer who later on had become a dear friend, for his opinion about our graphics. He made a face, not saying whether he liked it or not, and just said’…well, this is definitely your style’….

Generationals

December 19th, 2010

‘Nobody could change your mind’`s intro killed me. It made me forget work, it made me forget serious issues I have been dealing with lately. Just 8 bars, its amazing what few notes could do to a person on a gloomy night. Generationals announce March street date for sophomore album on Park the van. Plus a little collage from Lofiles and street artist Alias from Berlin, some Photoshop masking I have been using lately.

Watch ‘Victim of trap’ viedo


Stoner

December 13th, 2010

‘Stoner’ is a perfect title for this EP, actually it is an excellent definition of my past state, and now when I don’t get high or drink, music makes me fly, and ‘Stoner‘ does it to me big time.

Matilda and Marc AKA Valleys the create a haunting world of their own, using technology mixed with lots of heart and some great kicking ass guitars and make the music I would have been proud to make. Check out this extraordinary ‘Ordinary dream’.

More from The Brothers

January 7th, 2010

themakingof

More from this incredible band, The Ramirez brothers, in Jaffa`s flea market, indoors in a coffee shop and outdoors strolling through the funky alleys. We have 2 parallel sets, one that I was shooting with my tiny home camera, no external sound, no editing, and you could see the results right now. The pro session will be posted later.
