Current obsession is a collaboration between Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano called “FLY ART” which they describe as “The best marriage on the internet: hip hop and art”. The pair combines a few of my favourite things: matching lyrics from different hip hop songs with pieces of art, ranging from the Renaissance to Post-Modernism, and the result is amazing. Changing the context of the song and the piece introduce a really unexpected perspective, and I can’t get enough. These are a few of standouts (I am clearly drawn to Kanye and Beyoncé lyrics)

‘“Just be real, don’t bullshit people. It’s like half the campaign of selling a record is trying to convince people that you’re an artist. Well, I am an artist. This is what I do. I don’t have to get Jeff Koons to make a fucking replica of me to try and convince you that it’s art.’

I presume this is a reference to Lady Gaga, whose last album, Artpop, had a cover by Koons.’”

- TheGuardian.com interview with James Vincent McMorrow

"I love that it’s 2013, 2014 – I love that I can do these things with technology. It bothers me when musicians listen to music from the 60s and try and recreate it. Those people weren’t trying to recreate music from the 20s. Why do it?"

-James Vincent McMorrow on his new album, Post Tropical

208. Dr. Dog - ‘B-Room’ + Whiskey Sour

Ingredients: 2 ounces whiskey, 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice, 1 teaspoon sugar.

Mixing Instructions: Combine ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker.  Shake vigorously and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.  Garnish with cherry.

Notes: I once heard the whiskey sour described as the “comfortable t-shirt of drinks.”  To me, Dr. Dog has become my “comfortable t-shirt of bands.”  I can put on any Dr. Dog album at almost any time and feel myself relax like one does when sighting a close friend as they walk through the door of a busy restaurant.  With their seventh full-length album, B-Room, the band seems to experiment on many songs with simplicity, removing layer after layer until all you’re left with is their core sound…their Dr. Dog-ness - a sound which falls somewhere between Levon Helms, The Beach Boys and that one band, in that one bar that you sang along with at 2AM while your buddy kept shouting out “Free Bird!!”  While many will inevitably criticize the band for not straying far from their sound, I couldn’t care less…I just want to put the t-shirt back on and drink a whiskey sour.
