"There’s a precise moment during Invisible Violence, the latest album from local lupine electro-lovers We Are Wolves, that signals a surprising and welcome evolution beyond their typically reliable barrage of krautrock and dance punk. At 3:25 into “Walking Commotion,” the album’s third track, an acoustic guitar and string section grace what, up until that point, was a recognizably thumping We Are Wolves tune blending aggressive synths and shouted vocals.

It’s atypical of their previous work, yet feels completely logical given the band’s development following their 2007 sophomore breakthrough, Total Magique. (...) [They] credit co-producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh with pushing the band to embrace new sonic textures, resulting in a third album with considerable nuance—an important development given the energetic and brutish dance rock the group had been known for previously. Recording under fewer time constraints over two months this summer, as opposed to "Total Magique"’s inconsistent schedule, might have also given them more leeway to refresh their sound on "Invisible Violence".

"Blood Red Shoes are Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell. They are a rock band from Brighton, UK. They know there is a power and intensity in simplicity. And they have a new album. It’s called ‘Fire Like This’.

‘Fire Like This’ is both a progression and a paring down, a record that sees Blood Red Shoes – vocalist/guitarist Laura-Mary Carter and vocalist/drummer Steven Ansell – getting back to their DIY/punk roots. “We started the band in 2005, and a lot of stuff started to happen,” recalls Laura-Mary. “The band started taking off, and we got a bit carried away. So much stuff gets thrown at you, and you just do it, you don’t have time to think about it. But we’ve learnt that isn’t always what you want. We don’t want people telling us what to wear. We don’t want to do that crap video. We’re in control again. And I can tell you, right now is the most happy I’ve been about anything to do with this band." V2

"Brooklyn's greatest natural resources are rats, crime and dirt. Out of this ugly and overpriced ex-industrial vermin ranch has risen a band that are so loud and full of life that they not only make it bearable but they almost make the squalor seem charming and full of possibility. You go to a Golden Triangle show and it's like being welcomed into a clubhouse full of drunken carousing; good feeling permeates what was before merely a room with booze and a stage.

Golden Triangle is a band of three girls and three boys who play music that's loud, spooky, and will make you aroused and ambitious when you experience it live. I guess they're psychedelic or garage or something. Maybe post punks? They have two singing ladies who sound like soulful ghosts. In general the music is like being in a fun haunted house and the ghosts are cool but you never totally relax because, I mean, they're supernatural beings". Hardly Art

Lost Rockers is the new film from Paul Rachman and Steven Blush, makers of the American Harcore punk rock documentary that premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was theatrically released by Sony Pictures Classics.

Lost Rockers reveals great musicians overlooked by pop culture. It offers insight into what it takes to “make it,” and why so many of equal talent to famous stars fall through the cracks. The film tells the life stories of these forgotten artists — of different eras, genres, creeds and orientations — from their doomed paths to fame to their ultimate redemption. You’ll experience amazing music you can’t believe you never heard.

Lost Rockers has only just begun. We’ve shot our first four interviews (Gloria Jones, Jake Holmes, David Peel and Dr. israel) with many more to come, including famous rock stars commenting on their lesser-known contemporaries. Completing our research and moving into the post-production phase will require travel across the US, UK and Europe. Your contributions will help put us on this path.

"We are very happy to present to you the fourth album, "...And Then We Saw Land", by the British collective Tunng. Crafting a unique blend of rustic acoustic based folk, kitchen sink experimentalism, delicate electronics, and pop melodies that don't let go, Tunng weaves these parts into a seamless whole that's anchored by sweet male/female vocal harmonies.

Since last we saw them, the band have been on adventures both personal (Mike went to India, Ashley moved to Somerset) and shared – such as their ten-day voyage of discovery with Malian desert bluesmen Tinariwen, a unique collaboration that aimed to fuse the sounds of the two bands together. An experience that helped shape Tunng‘s approach to the new album “We learned that you don’t always need structure! As long as there is presence, emotion and groove. It taught us that everything is open and adaptable...” Thrill Jockey

Antony Gormley was born in London in 1950. After schooling at Ampleforth College, Yorkshire, he went on to complete a degree in Archaeology, Anthropology and History of Art at Trinity College, Cambridge, between the years of 1968-71. Following his graduation, Gormley travelled to India and Sri Lanka to study Buddhism for three years. On his return to London, in 1974, he attended Central School of Art and Goldsmith's College before completing a postgraduate course in sculpture at Slade School of Art between 1977 and 1979.

Gormley's work has revivified the way in which the human form is appropriated. Frequently using his own body as the subject of his work, Gormley's innovative use of the body, as a vessel for memory and transformation, explores the collective body and the relationship between self and other. His investigation into the human condition has been realised in highly acclaimed large-scale installations such as Critical Mass (1995), Allotment (1997), Inside Australia (2002), Domain Field (2003), Another Place (2005), and Blind Light (2007).

Swedish band , The Radio Dep is releasing a new album "Clinging to a scheme" on Labrador Records in the coming month

"The band has combined the most unequalled components from their previous albums “Lesser matters” and “Pet grief” with soul guitars, P-funk, glittering, distorted synthesizers, cut/paste-beats, 70’s futuristic orchestra sounds and sounds you don't know what they are. Things you've never heard before. "Clinging to a scheme" is way beyond pleasing - it's absolutely breathtaking."

Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam
Ari Marcopoulos - It might seem familiar
27 February 2010 until 16 June 2010

This spring Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam presents an exhibition by the Amsterdam-born photographer and filmmaker, Ari Marcopoulos. Marcopoulos (b. 1957, Amsterdam) set off for New York in 1979 and quickly became a significant documenter of alternative youth culture in America throughout the last three decades. Foam is showing work from his entire oeuvre, ranging from photos of the emerging hip-hop and downtown art scene in New York in the 1980s and the snowboard and skate culture in the 1990s, to frequent depictions of his own family in Northern California over the last ten years.

Marcopoulos’s work is characterized by a remarkable feeling of intimacy. Whether it concerns celebrities from the world of music or art, or his own family, he approaches his subjects in an intuitive manner and he always knows how to get close to the heart. His photos are direct, extremely personal and subtly structured. Recurrent themes are art, music, graffiti and the vulnerability of the human body. The exhibition shows a cross-section of his work from the last 30 years, varying from grainy black and white copies, monumental colour photos, videos, books and zines. Foam

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA), in the very heart of Europe, attracts people and organisations from around the world. Since centuries, Amsterdam has been a hub for world trade. In the years to come, the local authorities will make a joint and critical effort to pro-mote the more intensive use of their territories.

To give international investors and companies a better opportunity of getting to know about all the possibilities of the area an unique experience was created. What in the old days used to be a model of the landscape from wood and foam, committed to stay in one spot, now became a digital interactive standalone application with a voiceover which allows delegations to travel around the world and show in easy access the look, feel and facts of AMA.

Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, where she visited Disneyland and went to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era. Her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.

Irving Penn (1917–2009) was one of the great photographers of our time. Focusing specifically on his portraits of major cultural figures of the last seven decades, Irving Penn Portraits is a glorious celebration of his work in this genre.

Alfred Hitchcock, New York, 1947

The exhibition is brought together from major international collections and includes over 120 silver and platinum prints, many vintage, ranging from his portraits for Vogue magazine in the 1940s to some of his last work.

Marlene Dietrich, New York, 1948

Penn photographed an extraordinary range of sitters from the worlds of literature, music and the visual and performing arts. Among those featured in the exhibition are Truman Capote, Salvador Dali, Christian Dior, T.S. Eliot, Duke Ellington, Grace Kelly, Rudolf Nureyev, Al Pacino, Edith Piaf, Pablo Picasso and Harold Pinter.

Truman Capote, New York, 1948

This fascinating survey brings to light the significance of Penn's visual language and provides a rare opportunity to explore his innovative use of composition, light and printing techniques. National Portrait Gallery, London

This video shows a summary of various student's projects displayed at the TROIA pixel room in Bremen, Germany in 2006. The projects are the results of a class called "Live SDI", which took place at the HfK Bremen (University of Fine Arts) in 2005/2006.

They are experiments with light, sound, emotion, ambience and space, meant to be more than mere video displays, creating an animated room. The walls contain real LED pixels, which makes a difference from normal video projectors. If all lights are turned off, the room turns pitch black. All lights on is increadibly bright. The room has a refresh-rate of 50 Hz, so the impression of the live-performance was quite intense.

The project was challenging, but fun to carry out, sadly enough we never managed to have a huge club-party in that room, due to security issues.
