An Icelandic music producer who later joins Hyper Island had came up a paradoxical script on how one can turn horrorful events into something fun.
[ Interactive Art Director Student Atli Vidar Thorsteinsson has produced the music video Supertime for the group Berndsen (directed by Helgi Johannsson) which has been invited to the LA Film Festival in June 2010.]

In his decade-long career, Caribou's Dan Snaith has fluidly moved between genres like folktronica, shoegaze, krautrock, and 1960s sunshine pop, assimilating their most familiar traits until they're practically in his DNA. His albums have felt warm, loose, and ecstatic (especially 2003's still-career-best Up in Flames), despite Snaith's behind-the-boards meticulousness.
Snaith's latest, Swim, is even heavier on the precise sonic detail, and it's all the more impressive for it. Made with help from kindred spirits including Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan, and Born Ruffians' Luke Lalonde, it was borne out of a desire to create "dance music that sounds like it's made out of water." Swim is darker both in tone and spirit than its predecessor, 2007's day-glo Andorra, swapping expansive drum-circle arrangements and ebullience for chilly rhythms and a bummed-out disposition. Easy entrance points here are scarcer than on any of Snaith's previous full-lengths-- as with 2005's kraut-centric The Milk of Human Kindness, repeat listens are key.

Definitely my album of the week. Thanks to Kael for putting the album into my dropbox. I'm in love with the track - "Odessa".

Jump jump dance dance + Claire Carré: show me the night.
Pick A Piper is a collective from Weber along with Angus Fraser, Dan Roberts, and Clint Scrivener. Directed by Weber himself, here's a candy-speckled video directed by Weber himself - which was partially shot in magical Iceland, just the way I remember that subdued utopia - for their single “Rooms.”

Just kinda 'stumbled' upon it. N think this is slightly interesting.
"You function essentially with your own antennas, for you feel things more than you understand them. In fact, you're almost always right in trusting your intuition, which is really extraordinary.
You've a great thirst for tenderness. But you let yourself be influenced too easily when your sentiments are at play. Thus you're more often disappointed than satisfied. In order to console yourself, you tend to take refuge in your own universe where everything is idealized. It will be in your interest not to let yourself be trapped by your weakness, especially when one appeals to your goodness or your pity. Indeed, you're generally ready to give everything without complaining.
Your life is often marked with very painful ordeals and responsibilities which are too heavy for your shoulders. Showing a tendency to masochism, you like to arouse the compassion and admiration of others. With age, you forge for yourself a philosophy colored with stoicism.
In the domain of work, your intuitions are a precious asset. But your lack of initiative can prevent you from reaching the highest peaks. In fact, you prefer being able to help others to having success for yourself.
With you, friendship often takes precedence over love, precisely because you're afraid to suffer from the agonies of passion. Above all, you need to be supported and encouraged within the framework of marriage."

So much soul in their tunes.
Thanks to Ryan / DJ Agency for the heads up.
I love the entire album. Even The Intro is good. Here's some, but you wouldn't take long before you wanna bag the entire collection into your playlist. And loop it them for 79 times before you sleep.
They are from South London, and they are only in their 20s. Mind you they were banded since 4 yrs ago.

My mini 8mins of pride, filming and producing a short documentary on a totally foreign and unexpected topic - Long boarding.
From pre-pro, looking for interviewees, shooting, final cut, music-editing.. all in one week. It sure was intense, but the fun making it was paying off after every passing minute as well. Me and my partner Manual Branaa, had some invincible chemistry and synergy, that had made this little production possible without us tearing each other's faces apart by the end of it. Almost. But not.
Here's the manifesto:
It's not an award-winning documentary for sure, but what's more important - i had fun, and it makes my heart smile reminiscing the making of. ;)

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN : My soundscape design proj// Parsons Summer - NYC.
(If you have trouble listening to it/ error in the link, i'll repost it soon.)
Most things come in shapes, forms and sizes.
When grouped, the singular subject forms a pattern. We form a set of behavior, we form a way of living and we form our school of thoughts. We had grown up the way we had been taught, what is to be right, to be wrong, to be embraced, to be banished, to be celebrated, or to be exiled. And then, we fall into the trap of mundane-ness. We begin to form patterns.
Patterns too close to our eyes that we do not see.
There is no right or wrong, just popular opinions.
There is no peace or chaos, just a structure we so carefully weave.
There is never too much or enough, just how much you want.
Sounds, voices and melodies, they are just one of the many tools to tell a story.
To tell a story, is to observe a pattern, so we can break it.
If you can’t get out of a hamster wheel, if you don’t know if you are in one. Pay attention to the monotony, feel one beat at a time, only when you align the beats in synergy, then you can hear them marching to you in unity.
What goes up comes down, what goes down will take flight.
Cringe your toes, and ride on the waves.
You can’t change what is there, but you can change what you think of it.

My partner - Manuel (from Uruguay) brought me to see a really neat young gal, in her red polkadot dress, sat on a small tool along the streets near Union Square, where her little old, black typewriter and some white paper sat fitted nicely on a small wooden table.
She writes poems for people. A street poet. Just give her a topic, a word, a poem for someone you loved, or whatever thing that mean anything (or not) to you. She wants to write, she's hoping to get hired, and she just want to practice. I told her to write about, "Today". She has nice misty gray eyes.
Last of the dark gray days was yesterday
melting into a new groove
boiled out of the old
speaking a new sound
grasping at old straws
hands tied firmly to here and now
taking the form of a passing cloud
