scarred for life

kelli scarr, is not only a talented musician, she is also a wonderful mother, and a great, new friend.

i was really tired the first time i saw her (and met her), but 10 seconds into her first song i knew that i was going to be blown away. she’s touring this summer, so if you find her playing in your area, please don’t miss it. she is just incredibly moving to watch and hear.

along with her solo project, she’s also part of the bands salt & samovar, and color of clouds.

for more info, you can find her on myspace, facebook, or her blog.

the following song, “anything,” is a rough cut off her new album, which she is currently recording. enjoy.

*if the player isn’t working properly, please listen to the song HERE. it’s too good not to.

alexandra hope | invisible sunday

leave a comment »

last month i wrote about my very talented and busy friend alia raza, who had just directed a music video for the band known as violens. i still think that is one of the best names ever.
well, perhaps because we’ve known each other for 25 years, she has kindly worked some of my duskin pieces into her newest music video project for the song “invisible sunday,” by alexandra hope, an artist on the label manimal vinyl. these are stills pulled from the shoot, and they are




the video and album of the same name will debut in february, so please check back, as i’ll be posting it here.

tune in / tune out

there’s a new playlist up, and it’s now manual instead of auto-play, because if you’re like me, you open multiple blogs at once, and sometimes there’s a scary symphony arrangement between them all that could definitely be avoided. now, you have the power.

i’m still unpacking and working (i have a feeling those words will be repeated through many more posts), so i quickly just thought of some songs i was feeling for my mood right now. how do i sound to you?

“kids,” by MGMT. i really wanted to post “electric feel,” but i couldn’t find an embeddable version. i think everyone is sick of them by now, but i’m having a renaissance. blame it on the kids in miami.

sorry for the poor quality…

it’s a sin: another unhealthy obsession of mine is eric johnson, of the band fruit bats, and, occasionally, the shins. i “pulled” these images off this flickr page, which i assume belongs to his girlfriend, annie beedy. i just outed myself as a stalker. godspeed.
