We made some moves over the 4th of July weekend with our inaugural W&B Bike Night. Taking an evening ride through the Town, we stopped off at Surf Club and Morcom Park before settling in at the backyard boogie in the West. Thanks to Max, and Dispo Max, we have some pics to help tell the tale.
We sit down with Queens D Light, a formative member of the Malidoma Collective, and fresh off the release of her most recent musical offering California Sunflower. Our own Will Bundy chats with the artist about authenticity, her inspirations and her unique sound with accompanying photography from Max Gibson.
We take a look back at the closing party for our first group show in Oakland. FEELS brought together 12 local and up and coming artists at the Grid Gallery in West Oakland. Their work, and the subsequent turn out were equally incredible. Many thanks to all the creatives who came together to bring FEELS to fruition.
Around the end of our group show, we spoke to visual artist and longtime W&B contributor Danielle Schnur about psychedelic booties, iconic tragedies, and new experiments in her latest collection of painting and collage work.
If there’s a theme to this collection of tracks, it’s that I’ve been sleeping. The tone here should probably be a little apologetic, even. For one, I wasn’t all that impressed with Big Sean until recently. But with the handful of tracks I’ve heard from the album so far, it looks like dude actually has a serious project on his hands. “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay”, for example is looking like a new anthem. As far as Timber Timbre goes, I’m just glad Jesse put me up when he did. On the other hand, there are some more familiar faces here too. The grimiest Nas track in years, the latest from The Weeknd and some quality Drizzy round things out. Also, not to jump the gun, but that Thundercat album is going to be fucking crazy. Anyway, it’s the weekend. Enjoy yourself.
