Went down to Athens Friday night for a show organized by Henry of Chunklet Magazine featuring Man…or Astro-Man? at the 40 Watt club. Soundscreen Design did a limited edition 7″ record for the event to celebrate Touchable Sound, our new book on rare, DIY and underground 7″ design. You can check out images of the packaging (which included an old computer circuit board) on Chunket’s site, linked above.

Saturday night was another amazing time with the Of Montreal gang at Variety in ATL.

Onesies. Lots and lots of onesies.
Of Montreal has never disappointed me with their live shows. Such a talented group of musicians and always a great performance…not to mention an all around stellar group of people.
Thanks to everyone for the good times!

I’m loving this band right now. I also have a total girl crush on the singer- she’s mesmerizing to watch. I saw them play at Mercury Lounge earlier this month, and am hoping to catch them again at CMJ.
You can download a bunch of their songs on their blog.
My favorite track right now is “All Around & Away We Go” – looks like a fan has made an impromptu video for it:
My good friend and extremely talented designer Sena also used one of their songs in a video following the production of her 2010 Lookbook. Featuring makeup by the beautiful Erin Green.
Their new album, Color Your Life, was released in March. You can see a few live videos on Pitchfork.
Fur for spring/summer!!
Sorry PETA. 😦
I don’t know why I find the idea of fur in the spring so appealing. Maybe it’s because it’s perfect for my sleeveless Fitch vest (a Scandinavian version of a mink/ferret). I wish these were vintage, but I wouldn’t say no if someone wanted to get me a present…
I recently logged onto Amazon to order the new Jonathan Franzen book, Freedom (very good btw) and was recommended to check out Maripol: Little Red Riding Hood. Damn you Amazon, you know my taste. I had to get it.
It’s a big, heavy brand new book produced with Marc Jacobs. Maripol has just launched a collaboration with MJ designing accessories for his stores. If you’ve never heard her name before- Maripol invented Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” look, sparking a world wide style craze.
The book is an autobiography by the French born stylist-creative director-producer-designer-artist-muse Maripol, who moved to NYC at 19 in 1976. The book is a comprised of her sketches, notes, inspiration and some descriptive text sprinkled throughout. There are polaroids of her friends and clients; Madonna, Debbie Harry, Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones- some of which she’s etched or scribbled on.
As the art director of Fiorruci (a store referred to as the “daytime Studio 54”) she was able to launch her own jewelry line, characterized by rubber bracelets, cross iconography and day glo colors. You can find many of these reissued now at Marc Jacobs (who was a big fan of Fiorruci in the 1980’s to come full circle).
Maripol still lives in NYC in the same loft in SoHo for the last thirty years…a true icon! I highly recommend checking out the book, or coming over to read mine 🙂
