My newest obsession off The Brink. It’s kind of a grower, I put it down for a week and picked it back up this morning and now I’m IN. Anyway, this track is one that got stuck on repeat.
The Jezabels - No Country
This came up on my walk to work and I’m super into it. Really fun lyrics, reminds me of an Australia Kathleen Edwards
"I sleep in late
Oh what a wonder
Oh what a waste.
It’s a monday
It’s so mundane
What exciting things
Will happen today?
The yard is full of hard rubbish it’s a mess and
I guess the neighbours must think we run a meth lab”
Went through the new Glitch Mob a couple times today and this was definitely a stand out. This will be on my run playlist for a loooooooong time.
Just a beautifully aggressive, grungy, dub-steppy song. Relatable message. For listening to loudly.
Have seen this around the tumblrs a lot but noooo artist source or information.
The artist is Lee Price who is a figurative painter from New York who’s works revolve around women and food. Consumption and excess. The majority of the paintings are self portraits.
Here’s an interview with the artist where she talks about the concept a bit more throughly, worth the read.
Country of Origin: U.S.A.
Training: Chouinard Art Institute
Notable Works: Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), Peter Pan (1953), It’s a Small World (1956)
Mary Blair was the concept artist and color supervisor for many of Walt Disney’s most prominent animated films. She worked in a very stylized and graphic way, often using bright colors. In addition to her animation work, she also illustrated dozens of children’s books and designed many of the attractions for Walt Disney World including the It’s a Small World ride and the Contemporary resort.
Mary Blair is hands down one of my favourite artists. I long to see “It’s a Small World” again before they replace all of her gorgeous designs with modern garbage.
