The Black Kids: Hurricane Jane

The Black Kids: Hurricane Jane

There’s a danger in being the new hot band of the moment. This is especially true in the new blogosphere internet hype craze that anoints a new favorite flavor almost on a daily basis. The bloggers, forum regulars and faceless internet critics shower the artists with love before they’ve heard one note from an album. Just as swiftly as that love comes so too does the wrath. Critics tap away at their keyboards with joy at picking apart every nuance of an album that doesn’t live up to their expectations. Knowing this, the fresh faced, pop, indie rock, dance, subversively titled band The Black Kids must be cautiously happy about all of the recent attention they have been receiving. With all of their wide eyed exuberance The Black Kids seem intent on breaking the blog critic approved curse by successfully incorporating vocals that sound eerily like The Cure, guitar licks that are similar to Arcade Fire and a look that’s more similar to the cast of a Nickelodeon teen show then an angst filled indie band. All of these qualities are not just formulas for success but rather elements that The Black Kids may utilize to becoming house hold names in the immediate future. Their download format MySpace exclusive debut EP released last year “Wizard of Ahhhs” was immediately hailed as an excellent take on pop classics. Their live shows (mostly their now legendary set at the Athens Pop Fest) are praised for their endless energy. All that’s left for The Black Kids to do now is finish what they started. The single “Hurricane Jane” (also on their EP) from their new album releasing in June “Partie Traumatic”, seems like a good place to start.

HYPEBEAST x Flesh Imp "Lost Youth" T-shirt

HYPEBEAST x Flesh Imp "Lost Youth" T-shirt

Only a few short weeks ago, China’s Sichuan area endured one of the nation’s most catastrophic natural disasters in history. More then 60,000 people have succumbed to the unfortunate events that took place on May 12th. Despite being almost a thousand miles away in Beijing at the time, the aftershocks of the earthquake itself were felt and would be a preview of the unfortunate incident that has claimed the lives of so many innocent citizens. Within the masses of fallen lie numerous children and young adults which unfortunately will never be afforded the same opportunities and chances many of us take for granted. Collaborating with Singaporean brand Flesh Imp, we have chosen to remember the youth and their premature passing in the creation of our “Lost Youth” t-shirt. The design represents the brightly lit path of the youth which was so violently removed as it slowly fades out. With hopes of raising $5,000 USD, we hope you take the opportunity to purchase a shirt in which proceeds will be donated directly to the Sichuan Earthquake cause. The t-shirts are available for sale now with a price of $45 USD shipped worldwide (however faster shipping methods are also available). All questions should be addressed to sales@fleshimp.com. The only accepted form of international payment is Paypal, sizing includes XS – L. For information on sizing please refer here.

Glorious Excess (Born) by Mike Shinoda

Multi-talented Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park steps out of his usual musical role in his upcoming exhibit Glorious Excess (Born). The DC Shoes sponsored show is arguably his finest work to date incorporating personal revelations with pop commentary and vanitas influences.

Some of the associated imagery includes skulls, rotten fruit, bubbles and musical instruments, each with significant connotations. Shinoda’s exhibition includes multiple influences and a character’s time line through a contemporary society’s fascination with fame, excess and instant gratification This event is the first of a two part series at the George and Sakaye Aratani Central Hall of the Japanese American National Museum. Aside from coinciding with Mike Shinoda’s collaborative sneaker effort with DC’s Remix collection, all the art and sneakers sold will have proceeds donated directly to the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. The event will begin on July 12th and conclude on August 3rd however an opening reception for the public and autograph signing will take place July 11 from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
