All formats also available on the Rabid Records Store: http://www.rabidrecordsstore.com/ More information at http://theknife.net *Marit Östberg is a filmmaker and visual artist, based in Stockholm and Berlin. Her works are often focused on images of queer bodies and sexualities. She sees her work in a wider context of feminist fights and histories and her visual world has been described as uncompromising. Uncompromisingly current. Uncompromisingly sexy. Uncompromisingly political. "The film 'Full of Fire' started to grow as an embryo in the song´s lines 'Who looks after my story'. Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human´s lives, desires and conditions? The film 'Full of Fire' consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else." - Marit Östberg

Ken Stringfellow "Superwise" (Spark & Shine)


Simple pop perfection, in the way a member of Big Star, The Posies and R.E.M. could accomplish. I've been loving the lush sound of his recent release 'Danzig in the Moonlight' on Spark & Shine Records. I suggest you give it a listen. And definitely in enjoy this video accomplished in a single shot which I always find more theatric than cinematic.
And for all of my New Orleans readers, Mr. Stringfellow will be in our town on March 5th at Siberia. For all other geographic locations check out his winter tour schedule below to see how close he's coming to you.

Autre Ne Veut "Counting - feat. Mykki Blanco"



Look out The Dream and Frank Ocean.

Savages 'i am here'



London four-piece with some serious Siouxsie and the Banshees meets Joy Division. I'm into it. Don't get too excited though, in true UK fashion, the band only has a 7" and a 4-song live EP for you to check out currently. Let's hope they release an album sometime this year.
