• A Place to Bury Strangers – “We’ve Come So Far”

      Upon hearing A Place to Bury Strangers’ new single, ‘We’ve Come So Far’, I’m quite struck by how similar it sounds to The Horrors circa Primary Colours. Both feature signature Garage Rock elements; the discordant reverb, wavering vocals and guttural guitar, all underscored by an unfaltering drumbeat and ambient soundscape. More specifically, I find that Oliver Ackerman and Faris Badwan’s vocals could be almost interchangeable by how alike they sound. But for all the comparable factors, A Place to Bury Strangers manage to give this sound an individual touch through layered vocals and experimental guitar solos. As with most noise rock bands – with all their energy and heaviness…

  • Juliette Hayt Art

Hayt’s fascination with human nature and the state of the subconscious reveals itself in her dream-like paintings and art work.

  • Treasures

      Treasures was a devised performance piece incorporating mask and puppets.  The piece was originally developed as part of The Cave installation.    A group show, The Cave was presented at Frontrunner Gallery March 16th-31st, 2012. Produced by Corinne Beardsley, 20 artists and performers built a cave out of cardboard and wheat pasting newsprint to paint, draw, install sculpture, soundscapes, and host performances of music and theater. The show inhabited two spaces at 59 Franklin St. – a 400 square foot gallery, and its project space in the deep caverns of the building. The audience discovered the dark spaces using crafted flashlight torches. The Cave was a post-apocalyptic space that had been abandoned…

  • Omega Vague’s ‘Reveries’

      Seems like everyone and their grandma is a musician these days. In a world of beats made on laptops and “help me record my debut album!” Kickstarters, it’s easy to miss truly good self-recorded/produced music while you’re trying to avoid all the “experimental” garbage out there. Luckily, I’ve got a pretty solid homemade-ish album for y’all, straight outta Connecticut – Omega Vague’s Reveries.   Omega Vague is Craig Douglas, who’s something of a jack-of-all-trades music-wise. Although he enlisted some help for post-production and drums (all credits can be found on Omega Vague’s website), Douglas says he wrote, performed and recorded Reveries on his own. But he’s not just another…

  • Fear Will Lose

    Photographer: Kenedy Johnson   Models: Grace and Emma   Over the summer of 2014 I decided to do a photoshoot with my friends in a local cemetery that is supposedly one of the most haunted. What I learned from this particular shoot is that I have awesome friends that willingly modeled in a “haunted” cemetery for me, and that fear is only voluntary.                                        

  • New York Wanders

    Photographer: James Huang   New York City is a place where you can find almost anything. This body of work is an exploration of my every day life, living and breathing in this place I call home. New York Wanders is a series taken within the past three to four years of my life here, walking around the streets feeling isolation in a “city that never sleeps,” yet capturing tender and anonymous moments within the fleeting existence that this city nourishes. It is a stimulating place, full of anonymity with a kind of culture where distraction is eminent. These photographs function as a way to make still the moments of wonder in…

  • The Alcohol Diaries: Virgin

    High school was fun. I think the illegal factor is what makes drinking so alluring and crazy as a minor. The first time I got drunk on burh (beer) was at a high school party the summer after my senior year. Lots of dudes and chicks with promiscuous friends were in attendance. Everyone getting last supper schwasted within 20 minutes of the party starting. Those were the days. Still a relative rookie to drinking, I tried to pace myself by sippin’ on a burh and playing a delightful game of beer pong on the kitchen island. Kitchen island beer pong is so #highschool.   One of my friends brought a…

  • Elizabeth Warren: A Progressive Hero

    On a still-warm September weekend this fall, I found myself battling a hangover in business casual at the annual Texas Tribune Festival. The annual “SXSW for Nerds” was a who’s-who of Texas politics, mostly, but closed with a panel entitled, “Ready for 2016”. We still hadn’t reached the 2014 midterms, and yet some of the nation’s most revered political journalists already had plenty to say about a presidential election that’s still nearly two years away. But what was missing from the panel was a discussion of who would win the Democratic Party’s nomination. It’s not that the panelists were censoring their discussion to appeal to the many Republicans in the…
