Sadeh/Artless

The jester reigns supreme in Sadeh/Artless, the scorching six-track album by the one and only Puzzlehead.  Sadeh is Persian for naive, innocent, and unadorned — in other words, unaffected, plain, and artless.  What is there when nothing is there? Wonky and tight, jagged and greasy, dissonant and enchanted: Puzzlehead leaves the stars twinkling.

JSN – Mirror of Your Life LP cassette

jsnwebspread

JSN’s debut 10-track album is a transformative journey into the minds of Vancouver-based artists, Johnny, Steve, and Nikolai. Written and recorded at DUPLEX over the last year, the music is an extension of the artists in their studio. With a steady backbeat setting an eerie internal stage, JSN’s lyrical meanderings take the listener into the soothingly weird and reflective mind of three-become-one.

CASEY WEI – WHITNEY HOUSTON, et al.

Agony Klub and Publication Studio Vancouver are pleased to present Whitney Houston, et al.: essays around popular music. Inspired by Bret Easton Ellis’s chapter on Whitney Houston in his controversial novel, American Psycho (Vintage, 1991), editor/author Casey Wei invites five writers to explore their own relationships to popular music, resulting in essays on Marianne Faithfull, M.I.A., Kanye West, The 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards, Wiz Khalifa, My Bloody Valentine, Patti Smith, and more. The authors use personal experience to delve deep into the ambivalence of fandom, mythology, appropriation, and appreciation.

who will bond me to a lord?
which parts shall i restrain?
when i find the sweetest sore,
is where to bury your name.

what of desire, thick and deep
wraps around the space
pouring out the inbetween,
two faces around the vase.

my love for you is mirror-
a strange and sickly sound.
time spread brings truth nearer,
all same into the ground.
