Echo Chamber: Morrissey

“We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.”

Ham Sandwich – Ride A White Horse (Goldfrapp cover)

20 Jul

This is by far the best cover of this song I have heard. Love the natural feel of the acoustic instruments and of course, her voice ist just fantastic.

(Ham Sandwich live at Tower Records, Dublin for the launch of State Magazine.)

Studio Killers – Ode to the Bouncer

19 Jul

The lovely animator/illustrator Eve Wineberg introduced me to the Studio Killers a couple weeks ago. I’ve been loving the provocative elements, mix of cg and traditional animation.
A Denmark/UK trio recently released the a teaser music video for their upcoming debut album. Already it’s started a buzz on the interwebs—partly due to the elusive air about them.

From what I’ve gathered, the Studio Killers are a female trio, Cherry (vocals) Goldie Foxx and Dyna Mink. Note these are aliases. The actual artists don’t prefer the spotlight (or perhaps it’s PR) and hired a animation/design shop to create avatars, giuving them a kind of Gorillaz front. I could continue to prattle on about this, but go ahead and check it out for yourself.
