I was really sad to hear Gerard Smith, bassist in TV On The Radio passed away on Wednesday from lung cancer. Too young and too sad. TOTR released this video of 'Will Do' last week, and I kid you not it's been on repeat everytime my feet hit the streets. It's a beautiful love song.
With all this rain in SF (I know east coast friends, I have no right to complain) but damn I need some sunshine and color. So I thought what better way to get some quick color was to post Maya Hayuk's newer work she recently uploaded to her website. Just looking at her work I feel like I get a zap of vitamin D. Speaking of sunshine, be sure to check out Rye Rye's video Sunshine to see the below mural was comminssioned for.
Oh and Maya just joined twitter, so that's exciting!
My friend Emily (friend and amazing hair stylist) just turned me on to Twin Shadow. It's safe to say I am now obsessed & will be combing the internet to find everything I can on this magical being. He's coming to SF in April, buying a ticket as soon as I finish this post. Emily put it best when she said: "David Bowie meets joy Division meets Prince." Well put, little lady...I would also add Morrissey, right?
Although the below vid says NSFW, there isn't anything shocking it's just has a bit of a porn vibe to it. You can buy the album on Twin Shadow's site.
