Music medley.

My last exam was today. Yep. All done. I now have a whole summer to look forward to. I’m planning roadtrips, festivals, DIYs, late-night adventures, renovations, races and a whole bunch of interesting plans. Whoa whoa whoa! Hold up!  I told myself that these plans can wait, that I’ll have the whole summer to fufill my list and that my mind needs a break.  So instead of celebrating my final..final exam (can you say that?) I decided to stay at home and listen to some chill tunes while  getting my moms birthday supper ready. I’ll take a few days to get my mind back together and be in tip-top shape for Canada Day festivities.

Amazing Artist: Niky Roehreke

Currently based in New York, german/japanese artist Niki Roehreke has been producing amazing illustrations and artwork for many magazines such as Nylon, Flare, Jalouse and Dash. She uses a vast array of mediums and whether it’s her watercolour pieces or her collages, all her work is fascinating and stands out amongst the many other graphic designers.  Her designs are used by many up and coming fashion designers  and can also be found as album artwork or flyers for bands featured on music blogs like Hype Machine.

Although I would love to show you guys all of her fantastic work, this post would go on for miles and miles and I would be taking the term ”endless scrolling” too literally 😛  Her are some of my favorites + a short video interview

Niky believes that the most beautiful, honest way of communiction is our hands…her fascination for this body part is reaccuring in many of her pieces.

Niky is a truly spectacular artist . One of my favorite project of hers has been Refinery 29’s Periodic Table of Beauty Elements illustrated entirely by Niky which you can explore by clicking the link above.

Music hype-MS MR

Released today May 14th!

MS MR – Secondhand Rapture

msmr

After their first single release just about a year ago, the New York based duo is releasing their debut full lenght album-Seconhand Rapture. Looking forward to buying the album since I’ve been a fan for such a long time. As well as touring with Jessie Ware, MS MR are both extremely interesting and have a great sense of style. I also have a little crush on Lizzy’s hair changes! Here are their songs Hurricane and Fantasy from the upcoming album! Enjoy

Music hype-Fitz and the Tantrums

Much to my relief, the LA based band Fitz and the Tantrums will be releasing their second album May 7th. The album is intitled More Than Just a Dream and features 12 tracks of their revamped soul/indie pop genre. Formed in 2008, the band released their first album in 2010 and since then has gained popularity amongst music bloggers. The new album, produced by Elektra Records was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Belle & Sebastian, Phoenix) and has a much more synthesized sound as well as experimental vocals with a preppy twist.

The band has announced a North American tour that WILL hit Canada. Check it out here!

The album is avaible for preorder.
