Ladies and gentlemen, FEELS II is in the books. Much love and many thanks to all the folks involved in bringing our first art and music festival to reality. Bringing together a host of musical artists, from Kool A.D., Teebs and Kreayshawn, to visual artists like Ryan Rocha, Bud Snow and more, FEELS II was one to remember.
On the heels of some exciting new releases and a Feels II collab, we caught up with indie zine gods Nighted Life and its founder Nick Garcia. He put us up on Nighted’s origin story, the back catalog, and which shooters to look out for in the 2015. Also included, some thoughts on tall tees and “knowing better, doing worse.”
A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.
Some vibrant nostalgia from the mind of Michelle Guintu. East Bay raised but SF residing, Michelle has developed her aesthetic simply by painting the things she likes. From 90’s R&B superstars, like Missy and Aaliyah, to Joe Montana paintings and McDonald’s installations.
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.
