The legends at Stones Throw have released a free Jonti album, "Sine & Moon", which is a collection of early demos and remixes that pre-date one of my favourite albums of last year, "Twirligig". Below is one the best cuts off the album, a collaboration with rapper Jonwayne that makes me want to march into the Stones Throw office and demand that Jonti makes an entire album of hiphop... his production is just perfect for it. Pleeeease Jonti?

Our good buddy Levins has made a killer mix for Australia Day, featuring a ton of classic Aussie indie tracks from the 90's and early 00's including tracks by You Am I, Custard, Regurgitator, Ammonia and Tumbleweed. My sixteen year old self is giving out awkward high fives just listening to some of these gems.

Ah, the sweet smell of the 90s! This bassline is straight out of the Kim Deal era, and the whole song is drenched in the kind of fuzz and reverb that brings me back to my teenage years. I only heard this Melbourne three piece for the first time ever on FBi Radio this morning, so I can't wait to check out their CRACKSTRENGTH EP on Bandcamp (it's free to download!).
Matthijs Vlot has made a video of Lionel Richie's "Hello", as covered by every person in cinematic history. I don't even want to know how long this took.
MADSTEEZ and his good buddy MAR have painted a commemorative mural to the late, great Dennis Hopper in Venice Beach.
Hat tip to Johnny Idaho for this one.
I absolutely love this project! All words and images below are via Colossal.
"Last December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color."
