Eyecandy Smörgasbord: THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD LOOKS LIKE NOW feat. Sedition, Soft Hair, ABRA, ANOHNI, D.R.A.M., Builders Club, Robert Rushkin, Mykki Blanco
Lana Lackey and Tyler Kohlhoff: mixing pixels with Flock of Seagulls hairdos and outré garments with leafy locations (and doing it well).
ANOHNI – “Hopelessness”
I don’t know what it means but sometimes things just make sense without needing an explanation.
The self-titled debut album from ‘Soft Hair’ really shouldn’t be this good. (I mean, look at the cover. Look at that video.) But it just is … so the world will have to deal. Go listen now. It’s like Steely Dan in stilettos, or Pink Floyd on a sugar high, or MGMT doing an album with Todd Rundgren.
Speaking of things that are way better than expected: the D.R.A.M. debut is such a fresh breeze blowing though hip-hop and pop and music and art and human existence right now. Love that cover.
BUILDERS CLUB – “UNDER WATER”
This is what fashion editorials should look like today.
Please, for the love of all that is holy, watch the Builders Club short film about legendary artist Robert Rushkin. It will be the most inspiring ten minutes you’ll spend today, I promise.
PARALLELL STUDIOS – “Unsatisfying”
A short animation about the tiniest frustrating moments in life. Got any suggestions for episode 2? Send them in. Parallels studios will animate the best ones.
ABRA – “Pull Up”
Self-directed and unapologetic.

This pictures just makes me smile. The world can still do that, too, you know. See you at the show?
