Even Warpaint's rock-ish tracks from their earlier Exquisite Corpse EP still carry this feeling. Led Zeppelin-esque long jams, backed my Stella Mozgawa's skilled, mature, and emotional percussion, still sound like Warpaint. They are musicians whose skill accompanies emotion, rather than trumps its effect.
The Fool is a truly unique record, even in this age of experimental/ art-rock/ indie darling/ broken instrument bands. And unlike a lot of experiments in modern music, The Fool actually works. Warpaint will have a chapter in the history or music, as well as the history of women, years from now. The Fool is anything but foolish.
tying ourselves down to some local jewelry design that bangs right through our indecisive hearts can be some exhausting job.
but there we see no problem with jogema, the exquisite brand with a well-refined geometric shape of classic bling-bling to flaunt.
a bit of antique heritage with daringly explosive fuse can never go wrong.
already obsessed with this sexy vid clip of a chessboard battle competing with their tough gadgets on fingertips
through smokin' hot movement of every accessory on the rounds.
our heartbeats bang loud with this competitively striptease rhythm and go wham.
the brand is super slick. check out bangkoksmiths store for more.

This week in London is London Fashion Week, where designers are showing their collections for the Fall/Winter 2011 season. Last night, designer Alice Temperley celebrated the 10 year anniversary of her line Temperley London at the British Museum, by showcasing her latest collection down the catwalk. Filmmaker Marcus Gaab captured model Roos Van Montfort's final pre-show fitting at the designer's Notting Hill studio to create this short film for NOWNESS.com. The video was beautifully shot, and the soundtrack was gorge - I just wish Gaab could of captured more of the designs in the collection, and have less atmosphere imagery in it. Unless there was some significance about said images that I am just totally not getting?
Go ahead and watch the short film - then let me know what you think about it!
