M.I.A. – New album, drama, & “Born Free” Video

I’m a big fan of M.I.A. (real name Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam) and I’m really excited for her new album “Maya” coming out on July 13.  She caused quite the stir this week in relation to a piece that just came out in the NY Times.

I haven’t had time to get through the whole article, but I can see why Maya’s pissed.  Then a couple days ago she tweeted the journalists cell phone number.  And then today she released what appears to be her own recordings of their conversation.  It’s funny how journalists feel the need to twists peoples words almost like there just trying to get them to fit into their idea of a perfect story.  Lynn Hirschberg who wrote the article told The Observer that she found it interesting that Maya would put a “spotlight on the story in any way, shape or form….

Five New Art Prints by Alex Pardee

Alex Pardee, although sometimes terrifying, is still one of my favorite artists out there right now.  This past weekend he dropped a pretty crazy set of five new art prints.  “The Zookeepers Secret”,“The Grandfather”, “Red Handed”, “The Piggyback 2″,  and “The Giant Kitten” are all 17″ x 22″ giclees prints, have editions of 100, and are $45 each.

One of my favorite prints by him is currently hanging up in my living room, and although I don’t usually go for his scary prints I’m contemplating picking up “The Zookeepers Secret” for my bathroom.

Check out the other 4 after the jump. Continue reading

Ken Garduno for As Tall as Lions

Last year artist Ken Garduno did one of the coolest album cover for one of my favorite bands, As Tall as Lions.  Apparently they asked him to do the tour poster for their new headline tour which kicks off tomorrow.

The poster looks awesome, and I wish I could make the tour but unfortunately no dates are coming by me.

Dates and textless art after the jump! Continue reading
