Lately I just cant seem to stop listening to Grimes, Austra or The Hundred in the Hands.  I posted a video from Austra back in June.  So I'll save a video from them for last ...

Canadian musician Claire Boucher aka Grimes is ethereal, cute and moody. I can't get enough...this appeals to the angst ridden gay boy of my youth..or the moody thirty year old man of my present..whatever.  Press Play...I'll go smoke a clove.

Brooklyn based duo Jason Friedman and Eleanor Everdell make up The Hundred in the Hands, they first grabbed my attention when their song Commotion played on rotation at work.  When I heard Eleanors voice inflections I instantly thought of Siouxie Sioux.  I hate comparing the the two because they are completely different, and there really is no comparison. The Hundred in the Hands live below...

...and just 'cause I love them so much, Toronto based Austra with a video for their song Lose it.

It's been a long time...

 I shouldnt have left you without a dope video to sit through...or something like that.  Feast your eyes on the video below.  My husband, Brazilian architect Guto Requena, invites Freunde von Freunden inside his space(no pun intended).  I like Guto's esthetic; his eye for pop culture is evident.  He mixes mid 60's mod with  today's urban esthetic. His style is definitely relatable to his generation and speaks with a certain kitsch factor that is still refined and polished.  When should I propose?

Guto also remodeled and designed the Panamby Apartmen in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
