Dilla's Studio

Common collaborated with the late legend Jay Dilla to create this classic album.  Recently some photographs were unearthed from the sessions in Dilla's studio that were the foundation of this album.  Check out Eric Alper's blog here to see those previously lost photos.

Sunrise!

This painting of Amy Poehler in her acclaimed role as Leslie Knope in the television comedy Parks and Recreation.  It's also the first thing we spotted from the Peachy Apircot store on Etsy.  After having a look around we realize that it's run by two artists, and includes a lot of well known television and pop culture images.

You might remember Dr. Funke's 100% Natural Good-Time Family band from tv's Arrested Development.  Just like the Family band Peachy Apircot places emphasis on using recyclable or green friendly materials whenever possible, and in doing so the store has a wide product range.   T-shirts, tin boxes, glass bottles, clocks, key chains, and paintings are just a few of the items they offer, and custom requests are definitely welcome.

Click on any of the images to head over to their store, and check them out on tumblr here and twitter right here!

Maribou State. Oh. Wow.

Get started.  Click play, and then we'll give you a quick rundown.

It's always exciting to find an incredible new artist seemingly early on in their inevitable ascension to the top. Here we are, enter, Maribou State.  I couldn't find out a lot about them, they are from London, UK, and I imagine if you like stuff like Jacques Greene and even Nicolas Jaar, you'll probably be able to get with this right away.  Here's some more gems for you:

You can even head over to Media Contender, where we stumbled across them, and get an exclusive Lauryn-Doo Wop (That Thing) bootleg remix by them.  Enjoy yoself!
