Empire Of The Sun can walk on dreams and The Killers are dancers Comments | Oct 24 2008

Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.

The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.

Hedi Slimane Comments | Mar 12 2008

Hedi Slimane

I know this interview with Hedi Slimane is old but I recently found it on. It gaves some basic insight into such a respected designer who left Dior in 2007. Being known for furniture design, fragrances, store design, and photography, Slimane is noted for the slim silhouette of his menswear. Anyhow here’s some more insight quoted by Kanye West ”Hedi Slimane is not even a real person. I’m saying that in the most positive way. Saying that he’s not even a human being. Hedi Slimane is truly a god. Bow in the presence of greatness.

Hedi also has a photo diary located here ->www.hedislimane.com/diary/index.php

The photos are nothing less than captivating so instead of me trying to explain their meaning, or what makes the composition work just go look and form your own opinion.

To display some of the neat effects and features of the video what better way to do it than with the video Homecoming by The Teenagers. The Teenagers are from Paris and are recording some love music.
