Smoke Bellow rehearsing, Baltimore.

I’m going to be in the south of France at the end of June for work, for fun, for my birthday. Have you been? Any tips on places to visit between Menton and Marseilles? Merci.
Stevie Nicks breaks into song while getting her make up done for a Rolling Stone shoot.
This is An Horse playing at The Paradiso in Amsterdam last Friday. I am a terrible live music photographer but I love these guys with every bit of my insides.
Sucking at basketball… No biggie.
Soon I’ll actually be able to reveal more about why I went to Baltimore. It feels like a life time ago. Until then, you can listen to the first song by my dear friend Meredith’s new band. It is terrifically good.

I’ve not been able to get this song out of my head for two weeks.
I have six working days left until I go home for a month. I want to take photos like this of my friends in the sun. I want to swim in the sea. I need books to read on the plane. I need music to listen to on the plane. Do you have any suggestions? [...]
I had a dream last night that there was no music, that one day I woke up and my iTunes was empty and there was nothing beautiful to listen to. It was all gone. I’m dealing with that by listening to all my current favourite songs over and over and over again, committing them to [...]
Can’t. Stop. Listening. To. This. Song.
There is lovely light in these photos from Le Fashion.
Australian pop singer Darren Hanlon‘s dancing is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. This amazing video was directed by Natalie van den Dungen, the lady who unwittingly gave me the idea for my tattoo (which I haven’t got yet, don’t worry Mum) when I spent a weird day with her and Darren in [...]
New music video from An Horse, directed by Celeste Potter. I love these kids so much my heart hurts. Local Natives covering Simon & Garfunkel’s Cecilia.
Some more music for today. This time the PS22 Chorus cover Phoenix‘s Lisztomania.
My friend Seja and her beautiful new video.
I have a bit of a soft spot for Mick.
Comrades, do you ever scroll and scroll and scroll through your iPod and never find anything you want to listen to? I have so much music but I want to hear something new and special. Current loves include the latest Animal Collective album (I know), Papercuts and The Dodos. Share with me?
Tonight my dear, dear friend Kate and her band An Horse are going to be performing on The Late Show with David Letterman. If you are in America, please watch it! Tonight! And please love them and go and see them play and buy their record. Whenever I think of her on TV in front [...]
Apartment Therapy stumbled across this awesome photo essay, aptly titled: 70s rockstars at home with their parents. Frank Zappa Eric Clapton Elton John
If anyone’s been reading for a while now, they’ll know that about a year ago I completely lost my mind over some incredible brooches by Melbourne designer Lost in the Woods. The only problem was I couldn’t find anywhere to buy these little babies online. UNTIL NOW. That’s right. It’s only taken me a year [...]
I often lament the loss of the mix tape in today’s courting ritual. Is there anything better than receiving a personalised collection of tunes from your lover? I used to spend hours slaving over my stereo creating mixes for my friends. Now I don’t even know anyone who still has a tape deck! And when [...]
How lovely are the ladies from Au Revoir Simone? This trio from New York make the sweetest music and are so well dressed. I thought I would leave you with some pretty ladies to look at while I’m away in Rome (eee!). I hope you all have happy holidays. I’ll be back on January [...]
When I saw John Vanderslice supporting Death Cab For Cutie in Frankfurt last year, I had NO IDEA he was a fricking genius. Okay, I’m not the biggest fan of his music but his photos are incredible. Really, really incredible. He has slideshows on his website of all his past tours and I just spent [...]
We went to see The Darjeeling Limited last weekend. Before the main feature they played Hotel Chevalier, the Wes Anderson short that acts as a precursor to the film. If you can ignore all the hype about how you get to see Natalie Portman naked, it’s actually pretty awesome. Strangely, I think what I loved [...]
I love Ben Gibbard. I LOVE him. I know that’s probably not a very cool thing to say anymore but I think DCFC are great, and his All-Time Quarterback album is incredible*. So it was no surprise that The Postal Service, his long-distance project with Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello, is really awesome too. The three singles [...]
