1 clipe novo do Christopher Owens, ex-Girls

por   /  10/07/2014  /  15:15


Gosto tanto do Christopher Owens, o cara que tocava na banda Girls, que fiquei bem feliz de saber que ele vai lançar um disco novo!

“Nothing more than everything to me” é o primeiro clipe do disco “A New Testament” e junta pré-adolescentes muito fofos em um bailinho da escola, com toda a expectativa que antecede esse grande dia.

Pra completar, vale ver as fotos de bastidores do clipe na Rolling Stone > http://www.rollingstone.com/music/pictures/behind-christopher-owens-nothing-more-than-everything-to-me-video-20140709/0769712

E ler a entrevista que o cantor deu ao Pitchfork, falando de se reunir novamente com os companheiros de banda, largar as drogas, encontrar um amor e seguir em frente > http://pitchfork.com/features/update/9451-christopher-owens/

Yeah, it’s a relationship I can’t place a value on. We’re very different people: in upbringing, in habits, in the way we both cook, the books we read, the music we like. Maybe I see something in her that I think is wonderful and wish I could’ve been like that myself. At the same time, I don’t. I’m not a person with regrets. But I can definitely see the benefit of having somebody like that in my life. I mean, I could’ve had somebody more like myself in my life for this period of time and been pushed along down my own paths, my own devices—if that was the case, Father, Son, Holy Ghost might not have even come out. From the beginning, she has kept me aware without judging, without ever saying, “This is an ultimatum,” or, “You have by this date…” She’s never even been rude to me about it when my priorities were completely out of whack. From the beginning, we liked each other for who we were, and it’s always been that way. As time goes by, we’ll remain different people, but we’ll remain essential to one another.

2 clipes pra hoje: Metronomy e Lee Ranaldo

por   /  20/05/2014  /  16:16

Um do Metronomy, que eu continuo ouvindo todos os dias. Depois do clipe de “Love Letters”, dirigido pelo Michel Gondry, e o de “I’m Aquarius”, chega a vez de “Reservoir”.

E outro do Lee Ranaldo, pra gente ficar com saudade do Velvet Underground.

“A movie of a song in a dream of a movie.” Directed by Fred Riedel, the basic concept plays off particular images of the Velvet Underground as filmed by Andy Warhol in the late 60s, casually rehearsing at the Factory, performing (as The Exploding Plastic Inevitable) on St Marks Place with projections and dancers, and even Warhol’s famous ‘Screen Tests’. The character of “The Projectionist” is played by legendary NYC avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs (with whom both myself and Fred studied back in the 70s). Among the dancers can be spotted former SY drummer Bob Bert. Longtime SY associate, director David Markey, is among those behind the camera on this piece. Shot at Sonic Youth studio Echo Canyon West as well as at live gigs in New York City and Los Angeles.

Os conselhos de Patti Smith

por   /  19/05/2014  /  17:17

Para começar a semana, um vídeo da Patti Smith falando coisas da maior importância.

“Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. Life is like a roller coaster ride, it is never going to be perfect. It is going to have perfect moments and rough spots, but it’s all worth it.”

O mundo pré-selfie da japonesa Hiromix

por   /  12/05/2014  /  9:00

Antes de selfie virar palavra do ano, hit do Oscar e atividade nossa de quase todo dia, a fotógrafa japonesa Hiromix já experimentava documentar todos os detalhes da sua vida.

Ela começou a fotografar aos 17 anos e, aos 19, ganhou a décima primeira edição do New Cosmos Photograhy, concurso da Canon no qual ela recebeu a indicação de Nobuyoshi Araki, uma de suas maiores influências. Foi a deixa para suas fotos da vida íntima ganhassem uma popularidade gigante.

O ano era 1995, e vocês conseguem imaginar o impacto que suas fotografias tiveram na época? Ela adotou um estilo “meu querido diário”, com imagens de flores, discos, gatos, amigos e, claro, muitos auto-retratos. Pode ser comum hoje e todos fazemos, mas há quase 20 anos tinha um outro apelo – e muito frescor.

Aos 24, Hiromix, cujo nome de batismo é Toshikawa Hiromi, já tinha quatro livros publicados, o que mostra não só como sua fotografia gera identificação para uma legião de jovens seguidores quanto dá uma ideia do quanto os projetos fotográficos em livros fazem sucesso o Japão.

Em seu livro de 1998, ela dá uma boa noção da sua arte:

“Youth reflects transparency and beauty. Despite our lack of experience, the world often confronts us with unforgivable situations. We believe, more than anyone, in things that cannot be seen. Many unknown worlds are awaiting us. Surrounded by people and things we love, we smile carefree smiles. It is perhaps because I wanted to keep a record of this, that I take photos of myself.”

O que faz das fotos dela arte é aquela discussão eterna. De minha parte, gosto de ver em detalhes os registros de uma vida auto-centrada, que é tão enaltecida hoje, feita há muito tempo.

Cat Power abre o coração

por   /  12/05/2014  /  8:30

Cat Power fala um monte em uma boa entrevista no Guardian.

Patti Smith gave me life-saving advice. She told me: “It’s your responsibility as an artist to stand up if you believe in something.” I was overwhelmed by that. At the time I was just trying to keep myself alive and stop myself jumping out of windows

We wouldn’t have art and music if we all saw things the same. I’ve spent a lot of my life not fitting in. As a culture we forget that we are very different to each other.

I used to lie about what I did. When a cab driver would ask me what I did for a living I’d say: “I’m a writer.” I never thought I was a “good artist”, like people are “good bartenders” or “good cleaning ladies” with efficiency and a work ethic. I didn’t believe in myself.

I’ve looked death in the eye. The day after Sun [her 2012 album] came out I was in hospital with angioedema [a stress-induced and potentially fatal swelling in the body]. They told me they were going to put me in a coma to save my lungs. My friend came to visit and told me I’d made the Billboard Top 10 and all I could think was: “I don’t want to die.”

Songs can be destructive but helpful. Lyrics come from different places. Sometimes they come from a need, hope, memories or dreams, and sometimes they just come for no reason, from nowhere.

Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve seen the same type of people. It doesn’t matter what language you speak or if you can drive a car or not. We all generally want the same thing: clean water, shelter and security for our families.

Testamento de partideiro

por   /  11/05/2014  /  15:00

Uma música para o domingo: “Tempo de partideiro”, de Candeia.

Mas se houver tristeza que seja bonita
De tristeza feia o poeta não gosta
E um surdo marcando o choro de cuíca
Viola pergunta, mas não tem resposta
Quem rezar por mim que o faça sambando
Porque um bom samba é forma de oração
Um bom partideiro só chora versando
Tomando com amor batida de limão
