Wow. I guess Americans really will try to sue anything.
Luckily, this sea otter doesn’t seem too cut up about it.He’s like: “Look at all the fucks I give…NONE!”
Whereas this one…This one’s thinking: “FUCK MY LIFE! FUCK MY FUCKING LIFE!”
And this histrionic little dickhead just enjoys a drama.Any old drama.
But this pompous sea otter knows his rights. He understands legal strategy better than me. He’s also got a whole load of family money to support him…and a healthy property portfolio to fall back on in case he has to relocate. Smug bastard.

HAERTS are female-fronted band of four guys and one girl, who hail from Brooklyn, New York. Their first single is a beautifully tender piece of lo-fi pop, set to a montage of home video-style clips. I’ve looked for other stuff by them, but this song is the only one I can find. I’m guessing that as it’s on Vevo, they are already on the brink of mainstream success. Judging by ‘Wings’, they sound pretty great and I hope the rest of their songs live up to expectations. Lead singer Nini Fabi’s vocals are sweet, but powerful – like a mixture of Gwen Stefani and Stevie Nicks.
This song is sort of what I was hoping for when I first listened to HAIM. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed.

I so wish that they had this in my gym! Instead, they play Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj videos…

Love this song. The accordion in it reminds me of ‘This Is The Day’ by The The…except I think I actually prefer this song by Dead Gaze.

No, seriously. Tyler, the Creator has directed and starred in an ad for Mountain Dew. It gets weirder, though – he voices a female goat called Felicia…a really violent goat, who gets some kind of hallucinogenic kick out of drinking Mountain Dew.

The Black Angels have a new album out next week, and the artwork that goes with it is all so fitting and perfect. The psychedelic line drawings evoke Wes Wilson’s classic ’60s gig posters, and the brown parcel paper texture really emphasises that beautiful hand-drawn aesthetic.I’ve tried to find out who the illustrator is, but I’ve not had any luck. If anyone knows who the work is by, please feel free to comment and let me know. Thanks!
Edit: The work is by the very talented Matt Cliff, who unfortunately doesn’t have a website. Thanks for getting in touch, Matt!
