Reaching 21 years of age is considered a rite of passage for most young people, but for Sky Ferreira, who did so just three months ago, the milestone is little more than a marker of where she’s been so far. “I’ve literally been doing this half my life, since I was a preteen,” she exclaims, referring to her well-documented origin story as a major-label casualty-turned-major-label outsider (while still being on a major label). We’ve just sat down at Brooklyn eatery Cubana Social, and Ferreira is extremely amiable, prone to exaggerated facial expressions and gesticulation; she’s in constant motion throughout our conversation. Coming off of a busy day that included a photo shoot in Manhattan, she’s decked in a backwards leather cap and oversized buffalo plaid flannel—a baggy slacker in fishnets.
i think i missed the intro guys :/
SHANGRI-LA ALBUM ARTWORK
Jake Bugg - What Doesn’t Kill You
Music video for Jake Bugg’s new single for his yet-to-release album, titled ‘Shangri La’, which is now available for preorder on iTunes.
The Vaccines - Melody Calling
MEET: LE BARON.
This Mexican band surely isn’t new. Now on tour for the second LP of their career, Magnetismo Colectivo, it seems their sound has grown since the indie-driven and dark Esplendor, bringing us now a more cosmic and epic sound.
The first single of Magnetismo Colectivo is Celebrar, a joyful tune accompanied by a highly hipster video which you can watch here. Personally, I like Piel (the second single) even more. Not as happy or nice as Celebrar, but its dark, electronic and sad side give this album an interesting twist.
Anyway, make sure to check them out.
