Fantastically weird video for "How Do I Know" by Here We Go Magic, from their latest LP A Different Ship. Directed by Sean Pecknold.
Photojournalist William Miller bought an old Polaroid SX-70 instant camera at a local yard sale. After a few snaps he realised that the camera was malfunctioning, but instead of tossing it in the nearest river he began to take an interest in the way the camera turned normal shapes and colours and spewed them out into a series of abstract, sprawling landscapes. Below are some of the beautiful images from his Ruined Polaroids series.

Some really simple but beautiful digital manipulations by Portuguese artist Luis Dourado.
I'm really enjoying this tune by London duo Sunless '97. There's a lot to take in (synths! saxes! steel drums!) but it has a really great laid back party vibe. Looking forward to hearing more from these guys.
"This is the story of a nine year old boy named Caine who built an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his father’s used auto part store. A dollar gets you four plays, and two dollars gets you a five-hundred turn FUN PASS. Business was slow until independent filmmaker Nirvan Mullick spotted the arcade and plotted to change Caine’s life forever."
Here's some candy for your eyes and ears on a Friday morning. French band Part Company have a little bit of that MGMT peyote-pop thing going on, which is translated perfectly in a great desert video featuring elephant masks, coloured dust fights and gratuitous boob shots. Oh yeah this is probably NSFW. Lotsa boobs.
H/T to Mr Knudsen for this one.
I love a good cover song, I love a good burger, and I love a good woman, and this post is going to cover all three! My number one lady Anna Lunoe and the dudes from Wordlife (Kato and Adam Bozzetto) have made a great fruity house cover of the Suzanne Vega/ DNA hit from 1990, and it's available as a free download over on Anna's Facebook page.
Anna has a bunch of exciting releases coming up this year, so keep an eye/ear out for her!
