Listen! Perfume Genius

(click on the album cover to link to Perfume Genius' myspace)

I recently heard Perfume Genius' (aka Mike Hadreas') debut album "Learning," and was completly captivated by the raw and simplistic beauty in Hadreas' musical style. If I'd have to compare it to anything, I'd say that his voice reminds me of a more melancholy version Sufjan Stevens, however his style very unique at the same time.

Check out the title song "Learning", which was the first song that Hadreas ever wrote:

also, another of my favourites from the album is "No Problem":

sorry I can't remember where i found this, but please tell me if you know.

"Crash Years" off of The New Pornographer's latest album - Together

and an old favourite from the band:

Dream Walking Society

As I mentioned earlier, I'm (very)slowly starting to gather some images for inspiration for a future fashion collection. I have no idea exactly where this collection is headed at this point, but hopefully I'll figure that out along the way. I've been skimping on the fashion posts lately, as I'm currently feeling less inspired by the runways and more inspired by other mediums. But definitely there will be more fashion to come soon!
This reminds me of my days at animation camp spending all week making claymations and ending up with a 30 second video. This one's slightly more elaborate. Also this is a really great song. Definitely check out more from Thao.

I've changed things around on here a little as you can tell. The main page still has all of the posts, but now the categories are also separated by the tabs. Those who just want music can listen without all the fashion, food and randomness and those who want to other topics can view them separately too! I'm so glad i finally figured out how to do this, so thank you to all those who take the time to post nerdy computer tips on the internet.

Ethereal Inspiration...

I'm in need of some inspiration for an upcoming fashion collection that still remains very very vague at the moment, but searching through interesting images always helps. I love Danny Robert's inspiration day boards on his blog igor & andre, which is where i found these images:

This last image lead me to more of Maggie Lochtenberg's beautiful photography:
