run for your life ! (part.2)

I've already shared you a nike+ track some time ago (here), made by LCD Soundsystem. This track, "45:33", is excellent, it really helps you to do that extra mile.

Nike asked 4 artists, including Goose - a belgian electropop dance band, to make one new track, called Passo4. For now, it's only available on the Italian itunes store, but thanks to me, you can have it here !
enjoy your jogging !

Who made who - Passo4 - part1
Alex Neri - Passo4 - part2
Stylophonic - Passo4 - part3

vic de wolf

Victoria de Wolf is young belgian artist, with a lot of talent.
Born in 1984, she studied illustration at St-Luc, a famous art school in Brussels, and still studies graphic communication.
Besides being a graphic designer and an illustrator, she paints, but not enough if you ask me...


the subject of this post is not new, but i have some bands I'd like to share !

New York is the coolest place on earth, and one of the 5 boroughs has the hottest music scene right now ... Brooklyn !

the pioneers : TV on the Radio - Staring at the sun

the new scene :
MGMT - Destrokk
Fleet Foxes - Mykonos
White Rabbits - The Plot
Dirty Projectors - No More
Grizzly Bear - Alligator (Choir version)

don't forget Vampire Weekend, battles or dragons of zynth !

but brooklyn is fashion too :

the tuymans experiment (belgian cultural channel) did an experiment with Belgian painter Luc Tuymans (who's paintings go for millions). What if you take art out of its usual context and expose it in the street? Would people even notice it?
96% of passers-by ignore the painting...
