Kingdom Come

Kingdom Come

At around the edge of the 21st century Hip-Hop package design slipped out of it's quixotic hand drawn Rap stylings and began to inhabit the look and feel of slick packing design that was usually reserved for other less fantastical music forms. The cover design for Jay-Z's "Kingdom Come" is one of my favorites because it is a interactive work. What seems to be a straight up cover portrait of the artist is actually an illusion. The striking photo of Jay-Z is framed in a see through ruby colored slipcase that hides the actual hypnotic portrait of Jay_Z with and without his baseball cap, with and without his icon sunglasses. This image could have been the cover in it's own right, but it's psychedelic look may have been off target or misleading. Instead this image is meant as a alternative cover that shows the two sides of this particular performer. I think it's one of the best album cover designs.

I'd like to thank Dengue Fever for putting names and faces to Cambodian rock and roll history. My first exposure to Cambodian rock was in a restaurant when I was too young to ask what was playing. It was many years later that I found friends in New York who love Cambodian rock but wasn't sure who made it and where to find more. For those of you who haven't yet tasted Cambodian rock Electric Cambodia is a perfect introduction to the music. Chosen by the members of Dengue Fever from their collection of rare Cambodian cassettes. "Shave Your Beard" by Ros Sereysothea has been recorded by Dengue Fever and is a staple in their live set. This music was recorded in the 1960s and early '70s soon after Cambodia became an independent nation. It was a period of rapid modernization that not only influenced music, but also architecture, sculpture, painting, dance, and cinema. For many, it was Cambodia's own artistic renaissance, a time pointing to a hopeful future. This golden era came to a sudden end when the Khmer Rouge took control of the country in 1975 and brutally attempted to destroy any trace of modern society. Sadly, while many of the recordings of modern Cambodian rock and roll survived, most of the artists who created it did not. Over the last decade Dengue Fever has culled this compilation of their favorite Cambodian rock and roll from many different cassette tapes. The great music you'll find here is a testament to the spirit of a modern Cambodia that existed not so long ago, and should be remembered today.

  • Wildling is a recording that is more a mood than an album. For me it fills a sonic space with subtile performances of quite melodic drone, and lite vocal babble.

For me it fills a sonic space with subtile performances of quite melodic drone, and lite vocal babble. As an artist music by Kammerflimmer Kollektief is nice to have when I'm in the studio drawing, or staring into the void.

  • MGMT! These two guys are young and soulful if I may say so with a bit of experimental and psyc rock to it, it's a perfect mix for those summer drives.

Its ecclectic, its eccentric, circus-y, garage electronica, psychedelic pop . Anyway, I love it. If you're adventurous, give it a listen. If you're hesitant, listen to "Waiting to Know You" first and follow it up with "Nevers". Favorite Tracks: "In My Little Thatched Hut" "I'm In No Mood" "Bitter Tea"
