The Rabbit

I am not certain if this release means a new album is forthcoming or if it is simply a sensational summer collaboration between Swedish natives, Miike Snow, and Stuart Price. I can only hope for both. Yay summer!

Good things

I’ve been bad. I’ve been neglectful. I know that. And for that reason I am bringing you two very good things. The first is this amazing campaingn for YSL, featuring former super model Christy Turlington. It is probabaly the best print-based fashion campaign I’ve come accross since the days of Kate Moss and Gucci. You can see the whole spread here. The second good thing is this brilliant edit of Primary 1‘s Princecss. The Princess EP will be released July 5th. Enjoy.

Primary 1 – “Princess” (Isa Machine Re-invention)

Fire in your new shoes.

I normally have a problem with people who use the letter K in place of a C to be different or to have themselves remembered, but if/when you make up for it by teaming yourself with one of the hottest bands around to produce one of the better songs of the season you’re poor name choice can be overlooked (temporarily). Enjoy!

Kaskade – Fire in your new shoes (feat. Dragonette)
