French Style Furs

by Ryan Spaulding
ARTIST 
INTRODUCTION
by Julie Stoller

Appearing
7-7 at Mercury Lounge (Manhattan)
7-8 record release (everywhere) via Frenchkiss
7-9 at Rough Trade (Brooklyn)




INTRODUCTION - What do two indie rock bands from New York and Long Beach, a Trappist monk, poet, social activist and mystic, and a furrier's in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn have in common? Seemingly nothing whatsoever, and yet when they came together early last year, there was an inspirational spark, a perfect storm, and something quite, well, mystical. Moving between Brooklyn and Los Angeles, bandmates fleshed out the songs with the help of friends. These contributions include vocals from Haley Dekle (Dirty Projectors), Zina and Marika Dahlin; percussion from Stephen Hodges (David Lynch, Tom Waits) and horns from Wyndham Boylan-Garnett and Nick Kinsey (Elvis Perkins in Dearland) The musical discovery began when Nathan Willett and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids met with We Barbarians' Nathan Warkentin for brief recording sessions.



French Style Furs features members of Cold War Kids and We Barbarians.

INFLUENCED BY - Willett came to them inspired by the spiritual journey and writings of Thomas Merton. Merton (1915-1968), a writer, Trappist monk, poet, social activist, mystic, penned more than 70 books and many reviews and essays. He traveled the world in search of silence and solitude, and became a student of various cultures and religions traditions which included Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Sufism and Taoism. I'll bet he never would have guessed that his poetry would be sung with such heartfelt conviction in an indie rock song - or that his words would be broadcast live behind a band some day on stage.  During Merton's time as a monk, he moved from looking inward to being deeply concerned with the outer world, participating in the race riots and Vietnam War demonstrations of the 1960s by writing about issues of peace, social equality and racial tolerance. If he were here today, with so many of the same perplexing issues facing us, would he not have been out on the road, guitar and microphone in hand?





NAME OF THE ALBUM - Is Exotic Bait has a more desperate, frantic pace than the usual Cold War Kids fare. This could be Warkentin's influence, or perhaps it was the presence of Merton's spiritual longings that pushed them into new territory. This album can be thought of as "exuberant contemplation," which is especially evident in songs like the jaunty David Byrne infused "Solitary Life" and the breathless self-realization of "(World In My) Bloodstream," a contemplation of one's place in the universe.


"I lie on my hospital bed / Water runs inside the walls
And the musical machinery / All around overhead
Plays upon my metal system / My invented back bone
Lends to the universal tone / A flat impersonal song
All the planes in my mind / Sing to my worried blood
To my jet streams / I swim in the world's genius
The spring's plasm / I wonder who the hell I am."
- (World In My) Bloodstream


DELVING INTO THE RECORD - "Turn and Burn" on the record is (yes, a slow burner and) a number with passion and desire simmering. This one's a collaborative effort, based on Merton's "Aubade: The Annunciation" (1946), part of his poetry honoring the Virgin Mary ("Prayers fly in the mind like larks / Thoughts hide in the height like hawks / And while the country churches tell their blessings to the distance / Her slow words move / Desires glitter in her mind / Like morning stars."). "All The Way Down" is all fire and brimstone, damnation and salvation matched note for note. There is an awful lot here for those who like to dig deep."Clairvaux Prison" is both social commentary leveled against bloodthirsty dogs of war and a loving tribute to a French abbey that was wretchedly converted to a high-security prison. ("It is a year of strategy / The bureaucrats, wiping the blood off their fingers / In the gates of the Temple of Reason / have voted to poison the enemy's well. / They know their danger / They need to throw some dead thing / Into the living waters that were once Clairvaux / and kill the too clean image / in the heart of such a spring.")





JUDGMENT - Is Exotic Bait gives a modern voice to a visionary author who melded a sense of social responsibility with the age old search for inner truth. This is some heady stuff for a trio of rock musicians, but it's clear they're having a good time. And you will too. The Verdict: Very highly recommended, especially for those who enjoy their head banging with a strong sense of purpose.

Stutterheim Vladimir LBGTQ Rainbow Rubber Raincoat

by Logan Moy
THANKGODYOUREHERE

that jacket is fucking awesome

Stutterheim Vladimir LBGTQ Rainbow Rubber Raincoat

Although the sun may be currently shining for some of us, rainy days will, undoubtedly and unfortunately, make several returns. With impending gloomy skies, Swedish label Stutterheim release another impeccable rubber raincoat. This particular Vladimir jacket, contrary to its rather muted equivalents, is extremely vivacious. Founder Alexander Stutterheim utilized the vibrant hues of the rainbow on the limited-edition color-blocked raincoat to support an international GLBTQ organization fighting for equality. Running a small production of 100 pieces, the Stockholm brand will donate 15% of profits earned to the ongoing battle for egalitarianism. Support the cause and stay dry this summer by purchasing the coat here

Backdoor Farrah Is Opening Up A Yogurt Store In Austin, TX And Its Website Has Already Been Hacked

by Michael K
THANKGODYOUREHERE

oh god the hacking is kind of awesome though with the lil logo character. if japanese porn went a new route and instead of blurring things they did cartoon characters over genitals i think i would watch it

frocobackdoorfarrah

Because Farrah Abraham is an entrepreneurial genius who knows that most people said to themselves, “Hmmm, I could really go for some creamy yogurt right now,” while watching her squirt in her porn, she’s opening up a frozen yogurt place in Austin, TX this October. Backdoor Farrah calls Froco Fresh Frozen a “brand new concept” and since she has dingles for brains, a “brand new concept” to her is a place that sells frozen yogurt and other frozen foods. Froco’s mascot is a terrifying “popping boba” named Coba and Backdoor Farrah probably got the idea for it while watching a string of anal beads go in and out of her b-hole. That’s how Coba the Anal Bead was born!

Backdoor Farrah tells Starcasm that she came up with the concept of Froco (she should’ve called it “Stinkberry“) all by herself. Froco will sell fresh and frozen cuisines in a family atmosphere. Farrah really is a culinary mastermind, because I’ve never heard of a place that sells both fresh AND frozen foods. I’ve never heard of something called a fucking grocery store. The about section of Froco’s website (which I’ll get into in a second) obviously came from the shit-filled mind of Farrah, because it is equal parts frozen delusion and nonsense, and it reads like it was written by a dried ball of poop cum:

The founder of Froco, was set to open a restaurant concept when the now first location and property of Froco was available. Instead of going with the first planned restaurant concept the founder had a better feeling about Froco. There was a lot to be completed with an unplanned great concept, so the founder of Froco thought about the possibilities to buy into another franchise of the similar sort but then realizing after being excepted to the other growing franchises of the similar sort that their values, their brands weren’t as great as what the founder could live up too. So with passion and positivity the founder wanted feedback on her Froco idea. After asking others in salons, playgrounds, stores, and just everywhere the founder was set on Froco and the mascot being Coba the popping boba! …

The founder felt strongly compelled to include Greek yogurt in to as many of the food products at Froco as possible which are found in certain flavors of frozen yogurt and all the freshly made to go food items. The founder after moving to Texas at the age of 22 right before the creation of Froco was told by her doctor to better her health with plain Greek yogurt. Being the foodie that the founder is, the founder put Greek yogurt in everything – sandwiches, pastas, salads, wraps, sushi, desserts and the founder was happy to taste better enhancement of flavors with the Greek yogurt in all the food options. The founder found the balance of taste, health, and quality and wanted to bring this to everyone’s lifestyle all year round. …

The founder Farrah Abraham is recognized nationally for her success in entertainment as well being a wonderful mother to her daughter Sophia who at age 5 has helped every step of the way in creating a lovable, positive, passionate and educational mascot for Froco, “Coba” The popping boba, who you may put on your frozen yogurt and feel a pop of passion and positivity every time you visit Froco.

You know, Backdoor Farrah opening up a gourmet emporium that sells yogurt and bubble tea makes sense. I mean, Greek yogurt is a yeast infection remedy (you know that’s why her doctor told her about it) and boba pearls can be used as disintegrating anal beads.

And as for the website (via Uproxx), this morning, a hacker doing God’s work hacked it and on the front page they put a GIF of James Deen backdooring Farrah. Here’s the censored version co-starring Coba the Anal Bead:

frocohacked1

Maybe the site wasn’t hacked. Maybe Farrah’s just showing us how the fresh Greek yogurt is made. Whatever you do, DO NOT order the “one cup” special at Froco.

Jimmy Choo Fall/Winter 2014 Campaign–In addition to being the face of Jimmy Choo’s new men’s fragrance, actor Kit Harington also fronts the fall/winter 2014 men’s campaign. Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi had kind words to say about the brand’s latest model, “Kit has an innate confidence and projects a playfully rebellious nature. He has an overtly masculine style that feels effortlessly cool, and a great sense of humor, and beneath that intensity he is a true gentleman.” For the advertising campaign, Harington was shot by Peter Lindbergh in a Los Angeles home designed by famed architect John Lautner.
