VIDEO: Imogen Heap - Entanglement

It's pretty much obvious what Imogen Heap is up to in her latest video, which has been released ahead of her appearance at this weekend's Reverb Festival.
‘Entanglement’ portrays a side of the singer rarely seen, an intimate take on her more personal and sensual experiences (which is basically the classy way to put it).

Watch the video below and her new album ‘Sparks’ is out now to download via iTunes HERE.


Changing Faces: Face Tracking & Projection Mapping

Graphic projection onto buildings is nothing new, but take that concept and add a human face and then things really start to get interesting.

In a demonstration video for a face-tracking and projection mapping project, Japanese creatives Nobumichi Asai took a living, breathing model and projected electronic visuals via a CGI overlay IRL onto her face - the result is a slightly stiffened and creepy make-over which responds in sync with minimal human motion... pretty much what Cher and Madonna's faces look like after they've unwrapped the gauze.
Watch below.

New Music: PALE - Silence

Last year I brought you the sound of London-based duo Pale, who released the synth-pop gem 'Fearing Faces'.

Now the pair have returned with ‘The Come Back EP’ which features 4 tracks produced in collaboration with Adam Jaffrey, the first of which is 'Silence' - a fantastically moody piece which behind their polished electro-soundscape, is laced with vocals that shelter a very human tenderness where it sounds like a soul is crying out for help. Listen below.

The EP will be available digitally on 8th September featuring a special visual element created by the band in collaboration with artist Christopher Orlando Page.

Rising UK talent Rhodes is back with his latest release, 'Breathe' which seamlessly blends breathy and tempered fragile vocal layers with a stirring anthemic energy that envelops your senses. It's an emotion-jerker for the vulnerable seeking guidance - 'Are you holding your breath again? Breathe, release it all, come on now, I'll keep you warm.
Therapy for the heart, soul and mind. Listen below.

'Breathe' is taken from Rhodes’ forthcoming EP ‘Home’ which is due for release via his Ministry of Sound imprint on 19th October. He also plays live shows in London on 17th September at Koko (supporting Hozier) and 20th October at Oslo.

Courtney Love for PAPER Magazine 30th Anniversary

So Paper Magazine are having a little makeover in honour of their upcoming 30th Anniversary, and to launch their September issue they've enlisted the help of two game-changing, free thinking rebellious souls - AKA Brooke Candy and Courtney Love.
And since we're talking about the human equivalent of a question mark (Courtney), that airbrushing tool did a fantastic job of smoothing over her usually 'pecked at by dozens of pigeons' look.

Both women appear across two special covers for the issue which also features Patti Smith, Angel Haze, Kim Gordon and Fran Lebowitz.


Fashion on Film: DREAMERS x Santiago & Mauricio

Set to Underwaters cover of Tears For Fears 'Mad World' comes a short fashion film directed by Santiago & Mauricio for LOVE Magazine.
Starring Natalie Westling, Abiah Hostvedt, Pauline Hoarau, Chris Davis and Gabriel Marquez (styled by Tony Irvine), let the long hot dreamy Summer continue...


Jessie Ware - Tough Love

Waaaaaay back in 2012 I predicted Jessie Ware would be one of the hottest female R&B talents in the UK and two years later, she's proved she was here to stay with the release of 'Tough Love', the title track from her forthcoming sophomore album, due out on Oct 6th. 
The LP is a creative collaboration with Japanese duo BenZel, Julio Bashmore, Benny Blanco, James Ford, Nineteen85 (Drake's main dude), Ed Sheeran and Miguel.

'Tough Love' oozes that slow-burn feel with an experimental synth sound which melts into Ware's moody and hypnotising vocals - if you didn't see the official video directed by BRTHR, revisit it below and the single is out now to download via iTunes.

'Tough Love' full album tracklisting:

'Tough Love'
'You & I (Forever)'
'Say You Love Me'
'Sweetest Song'
'Kind of…Sometimes…Maybe'
'Want Your Feeling'
'Keep on Lying'
'Champagne Kisses'
