Good news of the week:
Chvrches released their Recover EP. It features the tracks “Recover,” “Zvvl,” and “Now Is Not the Time,” plus two cool remixes. They’re playing in our city in a month and we’re stoked.
Bad news of the week:
Lil Wayne released his new album I Am Not A Human Being II. The opening track has Wayne rapping over classical piano. If that alone doesn’t put you off, read his lyrics. If you’re still not convinced, don’t follow our blog.
Disregarding the immediate and persistent violence, this music video from the Russian band Biting Elbows is one of the most original we’ve ever seen. NSFW.

Japanese-born photographer Satoki Nagata has captured some stunning images on the wintery streets of Chicago. Nagata finds that successful images “show the multi-dimensional relationships of the world through symbolic and abstract forms,” and sees photography as capturing “the bright light line, the significance of existence of the person appears.” According to the artist, transparent layerings are created by flash with slow shutter speed and no reflection is involved in these images.
