Oh Wow! – Sentiments For All Occasions, Coloured Poetry and the Eye of the Sun.

Wowza, we’re already a week into November! And what a week it was – today we’ve rounded up some absolute gems for you, including witty illustrations that are automatically tweeted each day, two great new EPs, a seriously funny tumblr with coloured “poems” placed over Nat Geo-type images and lots more. Happy looking/listening!


ONE – A poster by Micheal Tymbios for Sacha Sultan‘s film Hands Folding Heads.




TWO – Tracks from Fantama‘s ‘Eye of the Sun’ EP, which is currently streaming in full on Dazed Digital and goes on sale on Monday.




THREE – The artwork for Petite Noir‘s debut EP, ‘The King of Anxiety’.
