AT THE NEWSSTAND

Kim Gordon on the cover of the new issue of Purple (but ours is better…).

The Sleeping Beauty

The series Sleeping Boy by photographer/film maker Ada Biligaard Søby is reminiscent of the old tradition of odalisque paintings. Nevertheless, this time, rather than the exotic female, the white male is captured in his private space where our presence as the voyeur is not evinced.

FROZEN WAVES

Stay Wild magazine posted these stunning wave pictures by Jonathan Nimerfroh. They got solidly frozen while performing their perfect shape…just incredible.

SONG OF SONGS

All rejoice, Nicholas Jaar bears gifts, this time an alternate score for Armenian director Sergei Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates (1969). Aptly named Pomegranates, the score comprises of twenty tracks that span the life of Armenian bard Sayat-Nova, the King of Song. The film itself is luscious, poetically described by Parajanov. Transcendent.

WHY MAKE SENSE

Nice touch: bespoke cover art for Hot Chip’s forthcoming album Why Make Sense, coming in 501 different colour combinations.

Superhero Trivialities

Superheroes taking a leak (by HRJoe)

Superheroes never pee. However, Indonesian photographer Edy Hardjoe tells the story as if they would. And as with any ordinary photo shooting, light is shed quite a bit, nicely documented in this behind-the-scenes piece:

BoredPanda has more of this.

NICE BREATH

The Museum Tinguely in Basel has embarked on an intriguing series of exhibitions dedicated to our five senses, kicking off with verve with Belle Haleine, focusing on art that addresses our sense of smell. Of course, this is something that Sissel Tolaas knows a thing or two about, and she will indeed ’show’ her project The Fear of Smell – the Smell of Fear on site, which we also used for our seminal issue #23, impregnated with a dozen scents. There are not many copies left, by the way, so if you haven’t yet, you should order one asap.

MONDAY MUSIC: LOWER DENS

Lower Dens return with a new album and a great 80s-inspired video…

PLANT TALKERS

Plant talkers for your plants and for all your friends with indoor plants from our friends at Third Drawer Down.

mono.ride

Oh yes, the new data-enhanced Rapha Pro collection looks like a crooked mono.kultur logo in motion. And in case you don’t care about riding, you can also sit, of course. Or take the train, tonight.
