I've been waiting a couple of months to post this churning, frothing Tamaryn burner called "Love Fade". Above are some stills from the video for this habit-forming smash hit, directed by Christin Turner and co-starring Alexis Blair Penney. Sink your claws in and hold onto it until it drowns you.

That is a photo of Christopher Owens shot by Matt Irwin while we walked around trying to get drunk on Easter. Check out Matt's site because it looks like he gave it some of Naomi's botox. Just kidding Naomi!!! The botox was from Leoncie. Look at this video Christopher made for the song "Curls"... it's duh'mmaculate.
Today T Magazine's Moment Blog posted about DIS as "Web Originals". Click here to check it out. In the photo, shot by Francesco Carrozzini, we are wearing our own looks (particularly shoes) with sporadic additions from Siki Im.

"Gouge Your Eyes Out" by Grave Babies Grave Babies are from Seattle, which apparently means they shoot up a lot and hate their lives. Their demos, which come on cassette tapes, are a sulking aural manifestation of how I feel in this 101-degree heat, following my apocalyptic fourth of July at Coney Island, a decrepit human wasteland if there ever was one; rife with mutants, drownings, and a blanket of trash on the beach, luminescent and refracting the [...]

"Someday soon you'll be on fire, and you'll ask me for a glass of water. I'll say no. You can just let that shit burn, and you'll say please please please put me out. I promise not to do it again, whatever I did to you." Those are the lyrics of "Someday Soon" by Harlem , one of the best shit bands in America, who I have a huge crush on. It's perfect because, in this definitive video by Aaron & Ben , one of the boys in the band lights his hand on [...]
SALEM 's title track from their forthcoming debut album King Night is a rapturous and brutal apogee in their sound, LOUDER than anything they've previously recorded. I could assign this hymn of celestial rape equally to a cinema soundtrack highlighting the cataclysmal rapture of heaven and earth, entrails and viscera spewing forth from CGI ignition; and to a tinny old radio late at night, in a car filled with cigarette smoke on a desolate outland highway. Music such as this is precisely why I've installed a smoke machine in my tiny 3rd floor [...]
This week marks the first anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson. I realized this fact this morning when I picked up the NY Post and my favorite cunt alive, Andrea Peyser, insulted Michael's children and Michael posthumously in a ceaseless tirade about how everyone should stop talking about him. I actually kicked off my own week of Michael nostalgia by watching a DVD of Captain EO. Anjelica Huston's look in this 17-minute movie is my new #lifeGOAL.
A hushed excitement envelopes the vaporous hiss of San Francisco's Tamaryn on "Sandstorm", her first single from her debut album The Waves (out 9/14 on Mexican Summer ). The cacophonous whisper interrupts a slow and churning buildup of Slowdivey momentum, clearing a crest and crashing down like a swirling breaker. The excitement bleeds into contagion and it's evident that this record is seismic. One of my favorite contemporary musicians (period.), Tamaryn has faithfully shadowed the dream pop that soundtracked the most vital moments of my adolescence and is bringing forth a new stimulus for squalling, guitar-driven colossal [...]
This is one of the best videos I've seen all year. Geneva Jacuzzi has been my favorite female pop star for an eternity and a summer. Were we in another society, one existent in a horizontally distant place and time, civilizations would certainly erect monuments of Geneva as a sphinx, coiled and staring, menacingly judging the proletariat beneath her. We should all be afraid of Geneva. Her power is beautiful, cruel, and punishing. Where in God's name is MTV? Geneva Jacuzzi "Do I Sad?"
I'm feeling that same Kim Gordon influence that Courtney's talking about... except that... we're so different. Free Kitten "Harvest Spoon" [ Fanks Matt Irwin ! ]
I saw Dean & Britta perform this song live with Dennis Hopper's Warhol Screen Test last summer in Prospect Park. Although it was one of thirteen screen tests shown, it stuck with me the most profoundly and it prompted me to revisit a few films from his career that changed my life and my perception of Hollywood. Blue Velvet 's performance is one that I find to be the most indelible; it's disturbing, funny, vulnerable, sexual, and arresting. That wasn't the only time last year that I felt connected to an artist shortly before [...]
Today the trailer was released for the new Sofia Coppola. Featuring the enchanting Stephen Dorff and the enchanted Chateau Marmontin a tale based upon the relationship between Ryan and Tatum O'Neal Somewhere 's a giant visual percocet I've been waiting to swallow for quite some time. Everything Sofia Coppola touches turns to drugs. I find her work to get continually better, Marie Antoinette being my favorite lucid delusion via Coppola to date. The soundtracks to her films often feature the same cast of musicians, most notably Phoenix, who seem to be in charge of the whole [...]
Amanda De Cadenet circa 1990 is my total and complete idol.
