Kitten – “Yesterday (What’s Love)”

27 May

I’m so sick of Facebook that I consider deleting my account every few days.  That website does have its benefits, though. Having hundreds and hundreds of virtual friends naturally leads to an occasional post introducing me to something cool.  Take this band I found there yesterday, for example.  Kitten has tendencies toward a familiar femme-fatale art-punk foursome – BUT, and I say BUT – they have a few uniquely redeeming qualities.  Their singles are infinitely remix-able, their sound has a transgender appeal, and (most importantly from a popular standpoint) they’re very danceable.  So why hasn’t Kitten broken into the mainstream?

Good question.

They’re too good.  They deserve your deliberate consideration.

I hate art.

The Jurassic Park Art Show Wholly Dedicated to People.

We’re embarrassed that we just found out about this Jurassic Park-themed art show held in LA well over a year ago. Regardless, the Just People exhibit deserves our latent attention. By showcasing pieces only devoted to the characters of the dino-flick, Curators gave a unique and humorous perspective on the iconic film.  We’re big fans of the Laura Dern pop art.  Full gallery at UPROXX.

Diet Wiegman has been transforming trash into instantly recognizable portraits by carefully arranging rubbish and manipulating light.  Since at least the early 1980s, Wiegman has shown a unique and acute mastery of familiar artistic elements such as depth and light.  Check out his website.
