Oh Wow! – Infrared Portraits, Painted Limbs and New Gestures.

Happy Friday everyone! This week in our compilation of gatherings from the internet we have two new EPs, an ongoing series of portraits shot on infrared film, a quick look at an upcoming exhibition and a music video full of brightly painted limbs.


ONEOriginal Swimming Party have released a beautiful new 3 track EP, wavs. To make things interesting the band decided not to use anything computer-based for sound creation, so all of what you hear was recorded live or improvised using analogue methods.



TWO – Musicians in Berlin photographed with infrared film for Romy Maxime‘s ongoing ‘Lucid Dreaming’ series.
