  • REVIEWS: MIKE GIANT

    reviewsd_mikegiant

    By Swindle Magazine

    Mike Giant’s career is the result of genuine curiosity and decades of drawing for five hours a day. He’s been—and remains—a world-class graffiti writer, tattooist and illustrator with his REBEL8 line. He’s made zines, skateboard designs, animations, prints, collages and stacks of interesting artist and company collaborations. He travels all over the world, rides his bikes, practices mindfulness, smokes a gang of weed, and is a fully tattooed goofball that one can bring to dinner parties. [Read More]

  • NEWS: FIFTH ST.TROPICALIA

    news_tropicalia

    By Charly Wilder- The Village Voice

    Tropicália in Furs, a hole-in-the-wall Brazilian record shop in the East Village, is the kind of place New Yorkers worry will disappear from the city forever. A tiny alternate universe where Technicolor dots bounce off glossy LP covers by Os Mutantes, the Cramps, and Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, it’s never crowded or empty, and the same affable connoisseur is always behind the counter.

  • NEWS: MURALS IN DUMBO

    news_muralsdumbo

    By DumboNYC

    A collaboration by a group called 303 Collectives (named for the studio number at 135 Plymouth Street in Dumbo) painted the Water Street wall (between Jay and Pearl Streets) over the Memorial Day weekend. I spoke with Craig Anthony Miller (aka Cam) yesterday, who was kind enough to speak about how it got started and the images in the painting while traveling in his car. 303 artists include Cam, Demon 202, Tron, John Breiner and One 9 (who wasn’t there for the painting).

    They work long hours and have to put up with rain, sleet, snow and hail — but unlike postal workers, they have to do it while hanging on the side of a building.

    New York’s mural artists are hardly a vanishing breed — this boutique business is still a big draw among companies looking to stand out amid the city’s sea of billboards and hanging mesh ads. [Read More]

    They might play the hottest dance clubs from Paris to Ibiza and Tokyo to Milan during the weekends, but on school nights, wunderkind tech-house DJs The Martinez Brothers spend their time hanging in their parents’ basement in Monroe, New York. [Read more]

  • REVIEWS: ETERNAL COOL

    By Matt Harvey & Jamie Peck-NYPress

    With the June 9 release of its latest album (and first for local indie Matador) quickly approaching, Sonic Youth—one of the most influential New York rock bands of all time—seems to be coming home to roost. 
    Not only is the group putting out records with a small, New York–based label, but its members have spent the past week skulking downtown—below Delancey Street even!— and making it known that despite having a few decades on the kids making today’s noisy rock music, they’re still a force to be reckoned with. Without further ado, this week’s all–Sonic Youth “Bash Compactor.”  [Read More]
