Cool Cover: Ayanis‘ Direction
Details: This one looks like it could wonderfully be straight out of the ’70s (except for the bike, possibly. I have no idea what kind of motorcycle that is). I love that outfit, and the lighting is so smooth for this photo.
Snail Mail @ the Neptune, Mon. 1/28 – Show Preview by Dagmar
Snail Mail – aka Lindsey Jordan – makes a return to Seattle tomorrow, Monday January 28th. The 19-year-old Jordan released her debut full-length album, Lush, last summer on Matador Records. Impressive! For her first album, she worked with producer Jake Aron, who, having worked with artists such as Beth Orton and Jamie Lidell, proved to be an excellent choice. You can also definitely hear Sonic Youth in the Maryland-born singer-songwriter’s sound. Snail Mail will perform as an entire band on Monday, with Choir Boy as openers.
Artist: Yung Lean
Video: “Friday the 13th”
Why You Want to Watch: Swede Yung Lean gets his wings in this Ingmar Bergman-esque video directed by Suzie Q and Leo Siboni, a French duo who has worked with Yung Lean on previous videos. Also collaborating with Yung Lean again is Director of Photography, Erik Henriksson. Nice work!
