Alex Kisilevich


I love this strange series of photographs by Toronto artist Alex Kisilevich. Dark and banal, but oddly funny, I'm looking forward to seeing more work from Kisilevich.

Charles Bradley - The World (Is Going Up In Flames)


Here's yet another great artist who would've passed me by if it weren't for the excellent Aquarium Drunkard's end of year list. Charles Bradley, the "Screaming Eagle Of Soul" is somewhere in the middle of Otis Redding and James Brown, and at 63 years old shows us all that it's never too late to make your debut album ("No Time For Dreaming", out on Daptone Records). I absolutely love this album, try and snag yourself a copy.

Tree, Line


I really love this project by site specific artist Zander Olsen...

‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’

20. Ty Segall - Welfare Bread
19. Jonti - Twirligig
18. Peaking Lights - 936
17. Clams Casino - Instrumentals

*I did originally have a song embedded for each of these albums so you could sample them, but it basically killed our blog with too much info. Feel free to check out any artists you're not familiar with on Hype Machine.
