Douglas Gordon - 24-hour Psycho (1993)
"The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames a second, rather than the usual 24. As a result it lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes.
The film was an important work in Gordon’s early career, and is said to introduce themes common to his work, such as recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light.”
The Modern Lovers - Dignified and Old
But I can see through this bleakness and grey and sadness
And well I won’t die now
Someday I’ll be dignified and old
I say, you, don’t die now
Someday we’ll be dignified and old together
La Sera - Losing The Dark (audio)
Just rushing out the door to go and see Chvrches but I have time for one quick post. After yesterday’s debuting of new tracks from Sharon Van Etten & Lykke Li who new there was room for more stunning premiers. But room there is the form of ‘Losing The Dark’ from the forthcoming third album ‘Hour of the Dawn’ by La Sera. Now we always knew Katy Goodman was the coolest red-headed chick in the gang whether as part of the late great Vivian Girls, Books of Love, All Saints Day or fronting La Sera, but this track takes things up a notch. Its a noisy and energetic ode to a drunk & druggy boyfriend and bodes well for the LP when it arrives on 12th May on Hardly Art.

"Simple and Sure" // The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
The very Cure-y first single off of new LP Days of Abandon (out 4/22).
I miss the fuzz but I can totally get onboard with this new Pains sound…
