She lit a cigarette and rolled down the windows. She could barely drive straight. She was weaving on the road. She was drunk. Not from alcohol, she hadn’t had any. His scent was still in her car. He was only 21 but he fucked like a demon. Babyboy.
This mix consists of the new lush UK garage movement and a couple of seductive scandinavian tracks. I chose this alluring photograph by Helmut Newton to go with the music. Sounds by Holy Other, XXYYXX, James Blake etc.
Today I learned about the latest trend. Seapunk. FUCK U Grimes and Rihanna, pyramids, seahorses, dolphins and suns!!! WE WANT IT NOIR and cool
I don’t think that I have actually posted this vid on tumblr before. This is my little brothers band from the Faroes. These gipsy rats are wicked juveniles trying their best to bring out the grim in you. The song is called Stacy Lee and is off of their debut album “The Flying Dutchman”.

PS my little brother is the one with the guitar ;)
“Nights I spend alone. I spend ‘em runnin’ round lookin’ for you, baby.”
I wish Girls didn’t break up. “Father, Son, Holy Ghost” was phenomenal.
YAMAHA XS 250, 1979
LOL, I know I never show interest in bikes but I have a love for the late 70s/early 80s. When I saw this stone cold bad boy, my jaws dropped… I’ve gotta go take a drivers license on the first day now. Pull up my sleeves, light a smoke, glasses on and WROOM.
YES!!! Mr. Postman knocked on my door and handed me my BAUHAUS t-shirt this morning.
Bauhaus - Bela Lugosi’s Dead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKRJfIPiJGY&feature=related Dammit this song is ahead of it’s time (1979). Could easily be something fancy underground stuff that Thom Yorke would write.
Finally I got this album on vinyl! From now and onwards, the intimacy of Badlands will fill my bedroom with the sounds of being in love and being drunk.
Dirty Beaches - True Blue.
Random whatever footage from our latest parties.

La Science Des Rêves
Intense lines from Candy, an awesome 2006 motion picture starring Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish in a beautiful love drama about oblivion and self-destruction.
“Once upon a time, there was Candy and Dan…
Things were very hot that year.
All the wax was melting on the trees.
He would climb balconies, climb everywhere.
Do anything for her…
Oh Danny boy.
Thousands of birds.
The tiniest birds adorned her hair.
Everything was golden.
One night the bed caught fire.
He was handsome, and a very good criminal.
We lived on sunlight and chocolate bars…
It was the afternoon of extravagant delight.
Danny, the Daredevil…
Candy went missing…
The day’s last rays of sunshine cruise like sharks.
I wanna try it your way this time.
You came into my life really fast, and I liked it.
We squelched in the mud of our joy.
I was wet thighed with the surrender.
Then there was a gap in things…
And the whole earth tilted…
This is the business.
This is what we’re after.
With you inside me…
Comes the hatch of death.
“In dreams, emotions are overwhelming”
ØSSUR JOHANNESEN, my fellow countryman seeks no harmony and idyll in art. His expressions are furiously raw and give a glimpse into a troubled artist’s mind. He is really good, check out how naturally he works the symmetry in the face of the person on picture nr. 1. His state of mind sometimes reminds me of a young Cézanne… Living in 70s London… Wearing goth and rocking out to dark beats. Btw he is an exceptionally talented bass player, check out the song “Torgerð” on Spotify. I promise, it will bring you back.
"when i’m drivin, i find i’m dreamin, jammin
tunes and driftin
and it’s just then sometimes i wanna pull over,
open up and stay
and uh, raindrops might fall on my head
but i don’t pay em any mind
christ was here
you just missed him
now i’m out
goin down second
to all the stores,
to see my friends
to find kinks vinyls
“THE EYE LIKE A STRANGE BALLOON MOUNTS TOWARD INFINITY”
This 6 minute art film by Guy Madin is an ode to Odilon Redon (1840-1916), a french surrealist painter. Lots of little references to OR, such as the flowerheads and the girl turning into the cactus man. Immerse in this one, it really messes with your head.
