Artist Metis Atash is known for her Swarovski crystals-encrusted sculptures of little Buddha Babies (which she calls Funkybuddhas) sporting spikey mohawks or embellished with sassy sayings. This pretty Pink one, joyously flipping the bird in a shirt that proclaims “Darling, No is a Full Sentence” (which: truth) was spotted in the Eden Gallery in Soho.
If you went out dancing last night, and maybe haven’t quite made it into the bed yet, I’ve got the perfect segue into your unconscious state right here. In anticipation of their new album, Totem, Colorado-based funk outfit, The Motet reveal the official video for track “Fool No More,” which will be the album’s second single.
The video brings alive the artwork from Totem for a funky, psychedelic journey through a tune that I can’t help but say reminds me fondly of the Pablo Cruise hit from way back 1977, “A Place In The Sun.” If you know that song, great. If you don’t, it doesn’t matter. We are just free-associating here.
Totem was produced by Lettuce and Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno and is set for release on July 8th, 2016. Check out The Motet on tour at the dates listed below. Enjoy!

Not to be confused with This Max Frost, this Max Frost, is a one-man-band kind of guy who, like Prince, Trent Reznor and the great Joseph Arthur, has no need for any musical accompaniment, because he can do everything himself — and do it well. The video for his funky jam, “$Dreams” (Dollar Sign Dreams) should put you in a good mood for an entire day. Tell me I’m not right about that. See? You can’t even.
I’m not going to write much else, because I am on vacation in Europe, bitches. Like this Max Frost on the FaceBook at This Link! Enjoy!
