"Play It Right" (A Capella) by Mountain Man
When the sounds / Come together so close to my face / It’s no wonder we wonder what’s taking place / Or feel like an animal in the night / Play it right
Amelia Meath from Mountain Man along with Nick Sanborn from Megafaun have now come together to form Sylvan Esso, and here is their version.
"Coffee" by Sylvan Esso
"I know my words will dry up on the skin, / Just like a name I remember hearing. / Wild winters, warm coffee / Mom’s gone… Do you love me? / Blazing summer, cold coffee / Baby’s gone… Do you love me?"
"There will be a time when all tracings of human culture will dissolve back into the soil under the slow crush of the unfolding universe. The pool, black and depthless, represents loss, represents mystery and represents the collective subconscious of the human race. By placing these records underneath the dark and obscure surface of the pool, I am enacting a small moment of remorse towards this loss. In the end however this is an optimistic sculpture, for just after that moment of submergence; tone, melody and ultimately song is pulled back out of the pool, past the veil of the subconscious, out from under the crush of time, and back into a living and breathing realm. When I perform with this sculpture, I am honoring and celebrating all the musicians, all the artists that have helped to build our human culture." - Evan Holm, artist statement on his work Submerged Turntables

"Stay High" by Hippie Sabotage (Tove Lo Flip)
"Can’t go home alone again / need someone to numb the pain. / You’re gone and I gotta stay / high all the time / high all the time / high all the time / to keep you on my mind."
Original: "Habits" by Tove Lo
"One day at the office after listening to Beyoncé for 96 hours straight, [designer Lauren Hom] was feeling especially sassy and stuck this post-it note on her water bottle as a joke.
The rest is pretty much history, like your ex.”
If purchased now, you can get a set of four “ex boyfriend tears” shot glasses in time for Valentine’s Day - the most fruitful day for the ex-boyfriend tear harvest. Alas, the flask is not available until February 24th and so you’ll have to make do with storing the tears in an unlabelled Tupperware container again this year.

"Allergic to Love" by Charli XCX (Snuffed by the Yakuza cover)
"You have to go now please because you make me sneeze / Allergic to love - Ah Ah Ah Ah Choo!"
"In a very general sense I want to create a situation where reality itself becomes a questionable point. Where one has to reassess their assumptions and their relationship to things around them. A kind of self-examination and an examination of the power structures that control us: Am I the jailed or the jailer? The oppressed or the oppressor? Or both." - Mona Hatoum in an interview with Bomb Magazine, 1998 (x)
In fashion, all that glitters is either gold or as expensive as gold. The top, a gold-plated snapback from XO Avenue, costs $60. The bottom, geen velvet and metal-plated sneakers from Giuseppe Zanotti, costs $1,295.

The works of Jean-Baptiste Courtier show images that no one would ever imagine themselves having to describe to someone else: “There’s a horse in a kiddie pool, in a forest, all alone;” “It looks as if three seemingly professional synchronized swimmers are practicing their routine in a lake at night.”
