Joel Sossa shows us once more that it’s not about just taking a picture, it’s about capturing the right moment with just the right people. He makes it look so easy, but for any of you whom have shot a lookbook or editorial attempting to stage scenes like this, you know it’s not that simple.
Happy Music Monday! Today is all about Thunderhank, two brothers from LA, Henry and Sam Bellingham. Heavily influenced from the pop music their parents played to them as babies, and current slow tempo electronic, their sound feels just right. Aside from the fact that this is the first of their officially released tracks, you would think they’ve been at the game for a lifetime. We spoke with Henry about Thunderhank and he mentioned that as their full length album has come to life, House and Tracker are the slower songs of the group. Listen for beautiful layered sounds; chattering drum line, light and playful synth, strong guitar, and melodic complimentary vocals.
We’ve featured Abadabad before and got a fantastic response, so in the name of great music and a group of musicians from Brooklyn that continue to impress, we give you a peek at their new EP The Wild.
Their first single, All the Bros Say feels fresh yet is mastered with our favorite signature Abadabad low-fi classic summer sound. It’s tempo feels good enough to carry you into an August evening in high spirits. Listen to it below.
Make sure to check out the rest of the seven song EP, The Wild, when it is released September 11th.
Erik Gustafsson captures the shit out of mood in his photography. I love his raw depth and the imperfect element to his photos. I thought about writing to him to ask about all of the stories from these photos, but I think I like it better not knowing because I get to create my own. Stories that is, because I have no idea what the hell Erik’s process is, maybe he can comment on this post and let us know his secrets, or not. Regardless we love his work and can’t wait to see more.
Spirit Sisters is a solo project out of Providence, RI. We are presenting a few tracks from his first formal project. When we asked him about the project he responded, ”I won’t say much else, as I want the listeners to appreciate the songs as they are to them. Along with that, it’s worth noting that I make music that can hopefully be enjoyed as the primary activity. Headphones/hi-fi recommended.”
We say, it’s great music to get creative with, put it on in the background and crack on that art project you’ve been wanting to finish for a long time.
