A true multidisciplinary artist if ever one existed, Joseph Arthur is not only an astoundingly talented Musician and Painter, but one of the kindest and coolest individuals I’ve had the pleasure to meet. It is genuinely exciting to continue to cover Joseph’s career as he blows minds for a living here in New York City. Joseph has a new exhibit of original paintings up now called Phone Calls from Leviathans (such a great title) at Amy Li Projects, which is inside this Button Store:

Fortunately, these paintings of Joe’s are also displayed in the window, to help catch your eye as you approach!

They remind me of the cover of Dark Side of the Moon! Probably not an accident! Inside the store/ gallery, you will find all kinds of excellent paintings like these:

I love them!

I think this is the best work Joe has done. I love the bright colors he uses and the energy he infuses onto the canvas.

This one reminds me of a bird: a Peacock, to be specific.

You can see more paintings from the show, and other works by Joseph Arthur, at Joseph Arthur Art Dot Com, but do make it down to Chinatown to see this exhibit in person while it is up!

Video Clip of the Week: Art Decade, “Breeze”

Art Decade adopted its name from a Brian Eno-produced David Bowie instrumental track, which gives the band a sort of built-in, arsty fartsy clout right off the gate. Their new video for the song “Breeze” — soothing, Sunday morning orchestrated pop taken from the band’s 2012 album Western Sunrise — was filmed on a beach with bunch of 3-D geometric effects tossed in during post production. The visual result is like Pink FLoyd’s Dark Side of the Moon…on the Beach.

Here’s what Ben Talmi, Art Decade’s vocalist/guitarist/arranger has to say about this clip: “With the animation skills of Whitney Alexander and Kipp Jarden, I saw the opportunity to combined the Impressionistic styles of painters like Degas, Renoir and Turner with the world of surrealists like Dali and Ernst in a setting of the beach, which was influenced by Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal and Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2. The animated subconscious dreamscapes Whit and Kipp created in the video are just like what I see when I close my eyes.”

Art Decade is putting the finishing touches on 11 songs that will make up their new self-titled album due in September of 2013. Enjoy!

On This Date In 1973: Pink Floyd released their eighth studio album,  The Dark Side Of The Moon in the US. It remained in the US charts for 741 discontinuous weeks from 1973 to 1988, longer than any other album in history. After moving to the Billboard Top Pop Catalog Chart, the album notched up a further 759 weeks, and had reached a total of over 1,500 weeks on the combined charts by May 2006. With an estimated 45 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd’s most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. Songs on the album were heavily inspired by  former Pink Floyd vocalist/ guitarist  and founding member, Syd Barrett, who left the band in 1968 (to be replaced by David Gilmour) due to his declining mental state.
