  1. Apesar do Homem se assumir como racional, e por isso superior aos outros animais, desde o início dos tempos que manteve uma relação estreita com os outrosnão racionais - que o alimentavam, vestiam, acompanhavam e auxiliavam nas tarefas quotidianas. Desde a deificação encontrada nas primeiras civilizações e suas religiões, incluindo o animismo (p.e. isto, aquilo, aqueloutro), passando ao seu posterior banimento e rejeição com o advento de outras religiões (p.e. a Católica), o culto dos animais, reais ou imaginários, nunca abandonou a espécie humana. Quer do domínio público, quer na privacidade do lar, ou mesmo em locais de acesso restrito, eles foram exercendo sobre nós um poder místico ao longo dos séculos. Do passado chegaram-nos diversas representações artísticas que o comprovam. Aliás, nos nossos dias continuam a existir, quanto mais não seja pela sua utilização metafórica (cf. “O Triunfo dos Porcos”). Nesse sentido, surgiu esta ideia [Circus], a qual, à semelhança de outras festas que têm acontecido lá fora, propõe o uso de máscaras animalescas para numa festa multi-disciplinar arrebanhar quem quer ter vida sem ser marioneta de teias que não teceu. Juntar-se-ão às artes circenses as visuais (como bons hipsters que são [ou mesmo não o sendo] conhecem de gingeira a Wasted Rita, Mariana, a Miserável, João Drummond, e também graffiteurs). E como não podia deixar de ser - DJ’s e música electrónica. Ao todo, duas salas do Maus Hábitos vão receber tudo isto, e ainda mais, com video jamming, e oferta de produtos (é alternativo, logo, a WeSC está metida). A informação útil está toda abaixo. Caso estejam interessados em ir e vos faltem ideias para adoptarem uma personagem, encontra-se no fim uma dúzia de inspirações.

  2. Conner Youngblood recaptures an intimate atmosphere for a song based on guitar and piano. Not only lyrics are heart-felt, but also drums are properly placed. “Proportions” is exactly that: different parts suitable to be put together in order to get harmony. Or more precisely, a restful track to listen at night on way back home.

  3. As it’s been announced, Spoek Mathambo’s going to release his second full-length (but the first on Sub Pop). “Father Creeper” LP will be out next Tuesday and it’s being streamed on SPIN. By its turn, the label offers one more piece - “Let Them Talk”, rockabily touched song. It was surprising! To get it it’s just needed to fill in the box on the bottom.

  4. Gold & Youth first presented this video/teaser (the regular font on their logo, as fashion demands, but it’s just a pointless remark) and after some hype revealed the full version (below) you can also download on their tumblr for free, after subscribing their newsletter.

  5. This post’s terribly late because when it originally was going to be posted, tumblr had one of its famous breakdowns, and I lost what I had written. So, after a month and a half and dozens of exams, here it is, at last! Since I got it, A Lull grew up a solid basis of fans. In part it was due to their US tour, but to it much contributed the EP guest remixes. But who exactly are A Lull? They’re a Chicago quartet adherent to American indie/rock roots we’ve been hearing a lot of since our teen years. ‘Till now, and especially after listening to “Some Love” (which is cute, but not necessarily new, if you know what I mean), it’s all OK. But wait, there are the remixes. And not talking ‘bout them would be nonsense. They’re actually one of its the best features. Brothertiger chose to construct the perfect scenary of any paradisiac beach with a balearic remix. City Light kept faithful to the original. Sun Glitters made a rich rework of the single, a mix of his fingerprint chillstep with dreamwave and a little appointment of shoegaze. All of them lovely. And have I mentioned it’s all free? Indeed, it is. 

    Artist: A Lull

  6. Memoryhouse haven’t spared some of the press that wrote ‘bout them in 2011, claiming they read too many bad articles concerning their new songs. Still, if they hadn’t been hyped on the web as they were, probably they wouldn’t be as recogn as they’re today. Just sayin’. Even more because I’ve been following their project for so long… The duo posted today “The Kids Were Wrong”, on free download on the box and blah blah blah. The single’s part of upcoming “The Slideshow Effect”, due to next February, the 28th 2012 on Sub Pop.

  7. With Census starting up in a moment in our country seeing that LA trio Autolux included the homonymous track on their new EP made me smile, it’s a funny coincidence. This and “The Bouncing Wall”, both from their August 2010 “Transit Transit” album, pair with an instrumental track, a Bobby Evans remix (Brother Reade and Widows’ producer), and “a mix of a sound installation Autolux created for the Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie) show, Parallelled Opposites, at Merrry Karnowsky Gallery in LA in Nov 2010”. Foggy music for grey days, at least for me.
