Grizzly and Final Fantasy Release “Possibly Maybe”

Ed Droste of Grizzly and Owen Pallett (a.k.a. Final Fantasy) have collaborated and contributed their own fluttering version of Possibly Maybe to Stereogum’s brand-new, 12-track Enjoyed: A Tribute to Björk’s Post compilation.  Reports are that they transformed Possibly Maybe into a minimal wonderland of musical twists reminiscent of the late Charles Arthur Russell.  They joined covers by other groups, such as Liars, Dirty Projectors, High Places, Bell, Pattern Is Movement, Evangelicals, Xiu Xiu, White Hinterland, El Guincho and Atlas Sound.  You can stream or download their MP3 or the entire album and for free.   Enjoy it!!

Spin Cycle: The Magic of Wonder Bread

Jeff Koons: Wonder Bread

I recently posted an article about Jeff Scher’s experimental short film Still Loaf with Guitar. Spin Cycle is a companion piece; both are earlier films in the series of works illustrating his long-term creative fascination with the illusion of motion via animation. Exploiting the visually symbolic nature of white bread, Scher created a panorama of color and optical effects in both of the films.

Comprised of 78 paintings on paper, Spin Cycle features a single slice of Wonder Bread rotating in limbo. As the film advances, Scher adds layers of paint and collage to the individual frames and then re-photographs them. The result is a film that blooms with the successive additions of color and texture until the image evolves into a dense and challenging cinematic experience.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
