Marnich Associates

Posted by Scott








Classic branding and packaging design by Barcelona-based firm Marnich Associtates. The stuff for Noguera & Vintro is incredible. Interestingly enough — and despite that excellent branding — they’re apparently the “exclusive distributor of Hello Kitty in Spain”. Good thing you have this incredible, minimalist branding, because we all know Hello Kitty retailers and very concerned with modernist graphic design.

All joking aside, this seems like a very strange choice of branding considering the product / market. It also just plain looks weird on the site with all that garish Hello Kitty stuff going on in the middle. Do you think the client asked for this seemingly incongruous style of branding or was it foisted upon them by an overzealous design shop? Judging from a lot of the playful work on Marnich’s site, I’d bet on the former as I could see them treating this right. Odd.

CertainCreatures+Streets+D’eon+KingFelix

Certain Creatures is an Ex-Warm Ghost member, the direction with the new project seems to be more hypnotic and if you listen to the blog you know I love hypnotic, reminds me a lot of Cloudland Canyon.

I’ve spent a little more time recently re-enjoying listening to the early Streets records again. Then this gem popped up, youngin’ King Krule does a solid rework that keeps the feeling of what I think people love about the emotional Streets tracks.

This is the only D’eon song I have and for the style of music he makes I can’t imagine it getting better than this. Is it wrong to just keep this as the only D’eon song I own ever and think of him as this talented distant cousin of Dam Funk that only released one song?

Laurel Halo coming in with a new alias that continues the quality where Hour Logic left off, waiting on that album.

Sabrina Ratte: Plink Flojd

Posted by Jakub


Fascinating new video work by one of my favorite video artists Sabrina Ratté, this is from an ongoing project called Plink Flojd which is a super audio/visual collective started by David Quiles Guillo. When I saw Sabrina do visuals for Le Révélateur it was incredible how the visual identity was perfect for the music, soo many “VJ’s” get it wrong or end up trailing off and making no sense with the music and this was one of best accompaniments i’ve ever seen.

Sabrina Ratté lives and works in Montreal. Her video work mixes digital and analog techniques and often deals with the diverse manifestations of light. She is also interested by the relationship between electronic music and the electronic image, and she often collaborates with musicians in different contexts. She has an ongoing collaboration with composer Roger Tellier-Craig, with whom she also performs live video projections. Her work has been shown in different galeries and festivals internationally, and her recent videos with Le Révélateur have been released on DVD by the San Francisco Label Root Strata.

And here’s a video from last year for Boxcutter’s track TV Troubles.
