A NEW PLACE 2 DROWN

“A NEW PLACE 2 DROWN” is an art project recently released by one of my favorite musicians, King Krule (Archy Marshall) and his brother Jack Marshall. Drawing inspirations from their childhood experiences living in South London, the brothers showcased their creative processes through music, visual art, poetry, and a short film produced by Will Robson Scott. In the short film, I am especially interested in seeing moments of King Krule making beats on the MPC, and the two of them creating art together in their home studio. The ANP2D book is now available for purchase on their website as well as a full length album available for streaming on Spotify.

Noritake is one of my favorite Japanese illustrators I have recently discovered. Known for his minimal approach with black and white drawings of everyday objects, Noritake manages to illustrate and create a very strong aesthetic with simple ideas using bold outlines with his water-based felt tip and occasionally the fudepen. Be sure to check out his online shop for a range of everyday products featuring his illustrations.

music: Chassol – Big Sun

 

French composer, Chassol, has recently been featured at the Red Bull Music Studio for his full length released album Big Sun. By utilizing natural rhythms and melodies from nature, speech, and ambient sounds through looped visuals, Chassol’s melodic harmonies create a vivid display of different cultures and people through his sense of musicality in a unique way. It is truly amazing how he uses music to break down barriers of languages and connect his audience with his travelling experiences through a new form of improvised music. On top of that, it is officially announced in an interview with Gilles Peterson that he will be on the new Frank Ocean album, stay tuned.
