Easy Cabreezzy

This week, I decided to feature one from the more underrated list of musicians. Introduced and suggested to me by my good friend Dustin aka Tsud123 (Featured in previous post), she sings with one of the more unique tones that you can't help but keep listening. She may look young, but there's a certain mature vibe that surrounds these songs. Smooth vocals mixed with refreshing songwriting, and straight from the Philippines: Rizza Cabrera (or Cabreezzah). Enjoy, and thank Dustin!

thickness never looked so good

Belarusian painter, Leonid Afremov, is definitely one who can work with colors and more. His skill with a palette knife and oil paint creates realistic vivid scenes and cityscapes filled with bright colors and amazing reflections. His emphatic thick strokes are almost mosaic in nature, but the result lacks no detail where the colors merge.

(For those who don't know, using a palette knife is basically like spreading butter on toast. Kind of. They look like this which is how his signature thick strokes are done.)

Afremov’s landscapes capture the emotion of a casual stroll through an old city, with all the vibrant colors and cultures alive in this artist’s perspective. Enjoy!

A Little Bit of Soul from the Netherlands

If R&B gets you moving, then sit back and let this guy move you. From the Netherlands, the soul he sings with is enough to drown you in chills, and his "raspy" tone is something almost every guy would want. It makes it harder for women to stay mad at you..(no promises.) Also, it doesn't hurt than he produces and plays just about everything in his backing tracks.

I've been a fan for a while now, and i figured this is something people would replay over and over..but if you haven't already heard his music or voice before, meet Airto Edmundo, and enjoy his old school soulful sounds.
Airto's take on Drake's "Best I Ever Had" <--actually makes me like the song.

Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" (One of my favorites.)

Airto's original song "Move On"

writing in the sky

again, sorry for the late post!

For Shinichi Maruyama, photography is a resourceful medium rich in aesthetic, commercial, and social possibilities. For the past five years, in a group of astonishing images he calls the Kusho series, Maruyama has focused on the technical and characteristics of the photographic medium itself.
The Kusho series consists of twenty-three large-scale color photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. These images literally deconstruct the material elements of ink drawing and calligraphy, allowing us to see, in detail, the chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye.

Melodic Poetry

I've been a long-time fan of this artist, and he's grown to be one of my favorite influences over time. With authentic poetry rather than generic lyrics, he writes some of the most amazing pieces of music with the simplest compositions. It'd be an understatement to just call them songs.

If you're into Damien Rice, Ray Lamontagne, or the deep, mellow folk-styled music..This one is definitely one to listen to.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Alain De Courtenay with one of my favorite songs of his, "Make Believe."

Another favorite: "Two Step"
