Video Premiere: Wildbirds & Peacedrums “Keep Some Hope”

wildbirds-peacedrums

I’m excited to debut this video from one of my favourite bands, the husband and wife duo of Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin, better known as Wildbirds & Peacedrums. They have such a raw energy, unsettling in the best way possible, driven mostly by Mariam’s vocals and lots of drumming from both of them. If you’re unfamiliar with their music here’s a couple amazing live examples to watch here and here (the 6-min mark of the second link gets me pumped every time).

“Keep Some Hope” is the infectious new single off of their latest album Rhythm. The video was directed by Anders Malmberg, you can watch it below!

Frames on Frames on Frames by Artist Taylor Holland

Taylor-Holland04

A couple years ago I wrote about Taylor Holland’s Fra[mes] project in which he digitally manipulated ornate frames from the Louvre. He since partnered with Sainthill Lijsten, who do restoration work and framing for large institutions like the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to create real versions of the absurd frames.

Here are six antique frames filled with repeated elements from the frames themselves, using custom molds built from the digital images. See the rest below.

Luke Ramsey

I was walking down West 4th last week and ran into my bud Luke Ramsey, painting a little mural out front of what will soon be the Patagonia Vancouver shop. I love everything he makes! This one was inspired by the movement of a circulatory system, and if you’re in Vanvouver it’s at 4th and Maple. More images below.
