!! OMG, this girl’s ring is on fire: Phosphorescent’s ‘Song For Zula’ !!


Matthew Houck churns out albums in the same way as normal humans toot out farts, like constantly, all the time, big smelly ones from the depths of his musical stomach.
His 6th album Muchacho was written “in the middle of a bit of a [domestic] freak-out,” when he escaped New York in favour of a beach-hut on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
Of the lyrics to mesmeric ‘Zula’, Houck told NPR that they came out so quickly he didn’t even realize he had dropped in a reference to ‘Ring of Fire’:

“Some say love is a burning thing, that it makes a fiery ring”

Sounds like a case of Mexican seafood poisoning, so I guess the shackles in the video represent being chained to the toilet, I knew I recognised that look of panic on the woman’s face, I could just tell from her sweaty hair she was a DOUBLE-ENDED GUSHER!

!! OMG, return my call$ a$ $oon a$ po$$ible: A$AP phones Alexander Wang !!

AAP-Rocky-Missinfo.jpg
A$AP Rocky has really blown up in the last couple of years, he must look like a hip-hop Ganesha elephant God behind his rose-gold teeth to have enough hands to have so many fingers in so many pies, removing obstacles and tooting fashion-referential lyrics through his wrinkly trunk-nose-hose.
He’s currently on tour with Rihanna, he’s worked with Raf Simons and walked the runway for Hood By Air. He’s musically corroborated with Florence Welch and Clams Casino among many others and worked with Alexander Wang in his Fall 2012 commercial with Diplo and his Spring 2013 ‘T’ [line] video with Bon “securrrrry” Qui Qui.\
Basically the only worthwhile person he hasn’t yet worked with is Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but this isn’t on the cards..not yet anyway!
A$AP is the cover girl for Interview Magazine’s April Issue which includes an interview between himself and collaborator Alexander Wang where they discuss Wang’s appointment as head honcho at the helm of Balenciaga, the loss of Rocky’s father and “the gay thing”:

“It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset…because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid–and that’s not the case.”

You can see the accompanying photo’s from the article, after the jump and the printed transcript from Alexander and A$AP’s phone conversation HERE.

!! OMG, come and – jump on it – riding – my brony: ‘Bronies’ trailer !!


I am not ashamed to say, the very first time I met my husband we totally bonded over ‘My Little Pony’, in fact I once was almost refused entry into the country based on the fact that I was shy to declare something to the border official, it being a ‘My Little Pony’ dvd signed by Tilda Swinton, I just figured they wouldn’t even let me in…given that there’s nothing that screams inappropriate immigrant than a love of PASTEL -SPARKLE STUMPY SQUEALING PRE-TEEN PONIES!
Well it’s nice to know I’m not the only one, my fellow ‘brony’ Brake sent me the trailer to the doc all about boys who love them ‘Guy Little Ponies’, and Bronycon, which this year will be in Baltimore…so if ‘Dungeons and Fag-ons’ speed-dating on Thursday nights hasn’t yet found you your perfect match, try Bronycon’s ‘Fag-Tag’, where -obviously- “Friendship Is Magic”; Baltimore Convention Centre, August 2nd-4th.

!! OMG, Frankly my dear…: Frank Ocean for BOO !!

__46085167764-435x580.jpeg
Oh My God, he is so Franking cute, you could put him in any clothes and he’d still look all cute and gay and brown and mischievous.
Clothing brand Band Of Outsiders used the celeb Polaroid look-book thingy last year with Michelle Williams and Ed Ruscha, to great effect, so they’ve stuck with this format for 2013’s Spring/Summer looks too.
There is a great sense of fun and curiosity about these [and the previous] BOO Polaroids, although I don’t at all appreciate Frank having a riffle through my school reports…that shits embarrassing, and so not true; I did not ask the head dinner-lady Mrs Cobblethwait if she could give me an EXTRA GUSH-MOUND FROM HER CRUSTY LADLE! As if!…that was Frank, I heard him say it.

!! OMG, RIBBIT!: Bobby Womack’s ‘It’s Been a Long Night’ !!


When I listened to the first line of Womack’s new release and I heard him croak “computer”, I knew this meant I was going to get either ‘teaching grandpa how to use Coral Draw‘ or ‘Kate Bush’s Hagrid Coltrane addicted to internet porn ‘Deeper Understanding’ super duper’!
Luckily it was the latter; as soon as the verse kicked in, with it’s low-fi keyboard jabs under Bobby’s CROAKY SOUL-TOAD SING-A-LONG it was impossible not to -as Mary ‘Poppers’ once said- “step in time, step in time”.
I’m not a big fan of the chorus but it’s never long ’til the verse comes back around.

“you were warm, sheets were cold, I didn’t have to be TOAD”

…erm, Bob, do you mean “told” or are you referring to the fact that you are the king of the croaky soul-toads?!
